The National People’s Congress ended its first session of the year with President Hu Jintao pledging to move ahead with reforms, AP reported. Several top government posts were filled with new people during this session, along with a bureaucratic restructuring to create "super-ministries." On Monday, a new defense minister, Liang Guanglie, was named. Liang and Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu were also elevated to the five-member State Council, the government’s top decision-making body. Hu said that officials must "adhere to the central leadership of the party, make people masters of the country and administer the country by law." He also said that "we should not be afraid of changes and reform."
