BEIJING, June 23 (Xinhua) -- China's government is to step up efforts to strengthen administration by law and to raise its executive ability and credibility, said a government statement Wednesday.

The making of major policies must be subject to procedures such as soliciting of public opinions, consultations with experts, risk analysis, legality assessment and group decision-making, it said.

The government must optimize the system of public opinion solicitation in drafting administrative laws and regulations, and enforce the law in a strict, just way, it said.

The statement said public supervision of the government must be strengthened by making government affairs more transparent and ensuring the rights of the public and the media to report wrongdoing.

The government must fully implement of the policy of holding officials accountable for any malpractice or dereliction of duty, it said.

The government must also play a greater role mediating disputes and actively guide the public to appeal and settle disputes in accordance with the law.
