BEIJING, May 13 (Xinhua) -- The Supreme People's Procuratorate (SPP) will solicit public opinion on media for judicial interpretation concerning vital interests of the people, according to a revised regulation on making judicial interpretation.

The regulation, issued by the SPP Monday, demands consultation from local and special procuratorates as well as related departments when drawing up exposure drafts of judicial interpretation.

Opinions from the members of people's congress, political advisors and scholars should be considered in exposure drafts if necessary, said the regulation. It requires approval from the Procurator-General before soliciting public opinion on media.

Local and special procuratorates are not allowed to make judicial interpretations or documents in the nature of judicial interpretations, said the regulation.

The regulation consists of 28 articles in six chapters.
