The Constitution of the People's Republic of China that is now in force was promulgated and enacted on Dec. 4, 1982. It has been amended four times since, but is still called the 1982 State Constitution. In 2001, Dec. 4 had been designated "national legal system publicity day," but from last year, at the behest of the Xi administration, it was ordained as National Constitution Day.
