Do not use your phones to send text messages or make phone calls during meeting; do not use your computer or phone to play games.... Representatives are not allowed to use means such as Weibo and Wechat to live broadcast the conference.
Incredible to think that politicians would be tempted during long meetings and speeches to do something else, but there it is. But you're also not supposed to do this instead:
Sleeping delegates at last year’s NPC.
Officials at the NPC and local-level conferences have repeatedly been caught fiddling with their phones during these meetings. Last year, officials in the province of Chongqing also advised delegates to not to text their friends on the popular messaging app or to shop online. (To be fair, this seems to be a world-wide problem: In 2012, three Indian politicians were caught watching pornography while parliament was in session and this month, a Hong Kong lawmaker apologized for looking at scantily clad models on his tablet during a budget meeting.)
Truly when it comes to boredom, the world is flat.
