CPC releases revised Party Constitution


BEIJING :The Communist Party of China (CPC) has released its revised Constitution in which “Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era” was enshrined.The revised Party Constitution was approved at the 19th CPC National Congress, according to Global Times on Monday.As many as 107 revisions were made in the updated Constitution based on 2,165 suggestions collected from various regions and departments. Xi, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, had chaired six meetings to deliberate on the revisions to the Party Constitution since June.The Constitution juxtaposes Xi’s thought with Marxism-Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the Theory of the Three Represents and Scientific Outlook on Development.”Xi’s thought is the latest achievement and new height of Marxism practice. Writing it into the Constitution shows the authority of Xi’s thought, which demands the Party to obey and promote the development of the theory,” Cai Zhiqiang, a professor at the Party School of the CPC Central Committee said.A wide range of new ideas, thinking and strategies put forward by the CPC Central Committee with Xi at the core have been added to the Constitution, including giving play to the decisive role of market forces in resource allocation, advancing supply-side structural reform and enhancing the country’s cultural soft power.Congress delegates also agreed to write the culture of socialism with Chinese characteristics into the Party Constitution, along with its path, theory and system.In addition, the amendment includes an assessment of the change in the “principal contradiction” facing Chinese society.
