In this article, the author presents four suggestions regarding the revision of the "Organic Law of the Residents' Committee." First, he proposes that the Law should clarify the content of the selfgovernance of the residents' committee, so that the self-governance will not be infringed upon
by the government. Second, he suggests that the Law should clearly stipulate how the
residents' committee should exercies its power of self-governance, specifically by encouraging the
residents to establish more organizations and broaden the channels for participation. Third, he recommends that the residents' committee should be released from all government functions and be a purely self -governing body. Fourth, he advises that it is still premature for the revised version of the Law to regulate the relationship between the residents' committee and the property owners' committee.
