Xi's article on strengthening, improving CPPCC work to be published


 , Updated 21:18, 29-Feb-2024

An article by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on strengthening and improving the work of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and fully developing consultative democracy will be published on Friday.

The article by Xi, also Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, will be published in this year's fifth issue of the Qiushi Journal, a flagship magazine of the CPC Central Committee.

The CPPCC is a great achievement of the CPC in combining the Marxist-Leninist theories of the united front, political parties and democratic politics with the conditions in China, according to the article.

It adds that the CPPCC is an innovation in terms of a political system involving political parties, prominent figures without party affiliation, people's organizations, and people from all walks of life and all ethnic groups under the leadership of the CPC.

The CPPCC has played a significant role in the founding of the People's Republic of China and in each historical period of socialist revolution, development and reform, the article notes.

It is imperative to adhere to the CPPCC system, champion the cause of the CPPCC, carry out the work related to the united front with a strong sense of responsibility and unite more people around the Party, says the article.

Developing consultative democracy

The article emphasizes the need to fully develop consultative democracy, which is an important way in which whole-process people's democracy is practiced.

It stresses the importance of upholding and improving the system of CPC-led multiparty cooperation and political consultation and ensuring the integration of Party leadership, the united front and consultative democracy.

It calls for giving play to the CPPCC's role as a specialized consultative body and improving its institutions, standards and procedures.

Efforts should be made to improve the system of consultative democracy and improve various institutional consultative platforms to promote extensive, multilevel and institutionalized development of consultative democracy, it says.

The article is a compilation of excerpts from Xi's important discourses on relevant topics from February 2013 to June 2023.
