The National People's Congress, China's top legislature, ended its annual session on Sunday morning, after endorsing amendments to the Electoral Law and Government Work Report, among other moves.

Sunday's closing meeting saw the passage of a number of key political resolutions.

An election law amendment affecting the NPC, and the people's congress on regional levels, is the most important measure.
