Premier Li Keqiang faced a new style of questioning when a China Daily reporter raised the issue voted most popular in an online survey which attracted about 25 million people, during a press conference on Wednesday.

More than 10 million Internet users voted for a question about boosting the national network system of medical insurance.

Li said online voting is a good way to identify issues people are concerned about as well as helping the government improve its work.

He also admitted he had heard about medical insurance problems previously. "Some seniors move to another province living with their children and looking after grandchildren. They paid medical bills when sick, but have to go back to their hometown for medical insurance due to the present policy," said Li.

"Many specific small problems in medical insurance may be a huge challenge to a family or individuals when they are sick," he added.

Li pledged to realize real-time public medical insurance settlement in two years.
