THE WEEK AHEAD

BEIJING : They Like It Already

March 09, 1993

China's rubber-stamp legislature, the National People's Congress, opens its annual two-week session Monday.

The congress is expected to approve a number of predetermined shifts in high government positions. President Yang Shangkun, 85, is due to step down. Communist Party General Secretary Jiang Zemin is widely expected to replace him while continuing to serve concurrently as party chief.

The legislature is expected to approve revisions to China's constitution to provide a firmer legal basis for market-oriented economic reforms. The session will begin with a speech by Premier Li Peng, whom most believe will retain his post.
