BEIJING, March 4 (Xinhua) -- The National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature, will deliberate a draft decision on improving the electoral system of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), Zhang Yesui, spokesperson for the fourth annual session of the 13th NPC said Thursday.

Calling the electoral system of the HKSAR an important part of its political structure, Zhang said what happened in recent years has proven the need to improve the system in steps with the times in order to provide a sound institutional guarantee for fully and faithfully implementing "one country, two systems" and fully implementing the principle of "patriots governing Hong Kong."

Zhang said the NPC has the power and responsibility to make a decision at the constitutional level to improve the electoral system of the HKSAR.
