The 2018 Constitution changed the name of the "Law Committee" to the “Constitution and Law Committee”, which is of great significance and is a further step forward in China's constitutional review. The functional orientation of the constitutional review is that the power organ reviews the constitutionality of the normative documents. Centering on this functional orientation, it is necessary to clarify the exercise of the constitutional review power and the scope of the constitutional review power. The power boundary of the constitutional review body should be clarified in order to form an effective connection with it, and ensure the effective operation of the constitutional review through its power allocation and system guarantee.
