Real-Name Registration may become Mandatory

Beijing — The State Council Information Office issued a notice on July 27, requiring Chinese news websites implementing a real-name registration procedure for online commenters, reports Radio Free Asia (RFA), quoting Hong Kong’s Da Kung Pao (大公报). News websites should also not be allowed to offer opportunities for online voting, or conduct opinion surveys, says the report.

Hangzhou’s People’s Congress Standing Committee had considered similar regulations earlier this year, but then shelved the plans which had been “met with strong doubts”.
