China Government
China Government - TravelPuppy.com
The National People’s Congress (NPC) maintains the most power and elects all those with the principal executive functions – the President and Vice-President of the People’s Republic, the Premier and Vice-Premier of the State Council (after selection by the president), additional members of the State Council and the heads of individual ministries.

The State Council reports to the NPC or, when the Congress is not in session, to its Standing Committee. The NPC takes place every 5 years and attended by over 3,000 delegates drawn from the provincial administrations, the military and other state organs.

The NPC membership and all major appointments fall under the control of the Chinese Communist Party, whose 22-member Politburo is effectively the country’s governing body.
