Economic development has enhanced the discretion of the National People’s Congress. Reforms on the state enterprises and the drive towards further marketization have provided grounds for the emergence of a competitive political system. Newly-surfacing interest groups are poising to establish representation for the protection of their interests. Efforts made by the Beijing authority towards institutionalization since the 1980s and the invigoration of the legislature have reinforced the resolve to rule by law. The old ways of centralization can no longer manage the complex economy reshaped by the semi-free market. Legalization has become the only alternative for the government to deal with the ever-more complicated economy and the increasingly lively social activities.
However, the party-system is still firmly in place. Consequently, the NPC still has to rely on the communist party for legitimacy. While the NPC has gained some autonomy in legislation and in deciding government personnel, the overall powers of agenda-setting and operation of the NPC are still under Party control. The Party is careful in selecting NPC membership and the internal workings of the institution need revamping.
