BEIJING, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- China's top legislator Li Zhanshu on Wednesday listened to advice on strengthening and improving the work of the people's congresses and playing a better role as lawmakers at a symposium.

Legislators should think and voice opinions in big-picture terms, said Li, chairman of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee, who presided over the meeting attended by 52 NPC deputies.

Li called on lawmakers to improve their political integrity and the ability to perform duties, and play their role as bridges linking the Party and the country with the people.

Lawmakers should also build good images, cherish their identities as legislators and be open to public supervision, said Li.
