Fresh pledge to improve petitioning system, Xinhua says

A key Chinese official dealing with the public’s complaints has pledged reforms in the country’s petitioning system to better redress public grievances, Xinhua news agency reported Friday. Zhang Enxi, deputy head of the State Bureau for Letters and Calls, was quoted as saying Thursday that the bureau will expand channels for the public to file petitions, including through hotlines, videos and online formats. Close attention should be given to all petitions, especially those from people who are filing their first such appeals, Zhang said at a news conference.
