Are NPC deputies subject to supervision by the electoral units which elected them? Does an electoral unit have the power to recall deputies it elects?

Yes. All deputies to the National People's Congress are subject to supervision by the electoral units that elected them. Such electoral units have the right to recall deputies they elect.

An NPC deputy may hand in a note of resignation to the standing committee of the people's congress in which they were elected. If a deputy's post becomes vacant for any reason during their term of office, the electoral unit which elected them may hold a by-election to fill the vacancy.
