One More Question on China's constitutional amendment: Why is a National Supervision Commission necessary?
Wang Chenguang, a law professor at Tsinghua University, spoke to CGTN about the necessity of adding the National Supervision Commission to China's Constitution. 
Wang said establishing the commission was "a very important step for tightening up the legal rules, controlling officials and particularly important for anti-corruption in China." 
Corruption was a serious social problem existing in government, parties, and society, he said. The fight against it was a major strategy for safeguarding Chinese reform for further development. 
Therefore, establishing the commission to upgrade the status of the anti-corruption agency is a significant move, he added. 
Also, the new body, according to Wang, would combine the previous work by different organs and institutions in party and government. As a result, the anti-corruption campaign would be carried out more efficiently with the consolidated institutions. 
Third, the new commission would avoid duplication and streamline anti-corruption measures in the Chinese system, Wang noted. 
Lastly, the professor said that the commission would have equal footing with the judiciary, prosecution service, and state council, which indicates a strengthening of anti-corruption mechanisms in China and also a major change of the state structure.
