The longest representative of China’s National Congress Shen Jilan


The longest representative of China’s National Congress Shen Jilan (申纪兰)

Born in December, 1930, Shen Jilan is the only representative of all sessions of the National People’s Congress for eleven times from 1956 to 2011. Her most famous statement is “I support the CCP. As a representative, I ought to follow CCP. I never have a negative vote.” (我非常拥护共产党。当代表就是要听党的话,我从来没有投过反对票). She joined the CCP in 1953 and is said to have education at elementary school level. There is no indication whether she graduated from an elementary school though.
