Commentary: Law and Party disciplines brook no violation


08:27, April 15, 2012

BEIJING, April 14 (Xinhua) -- The recent decision of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee to investigate Bo Xilai's serious discipline violations, and the police reinvestigation of Neil Heywood's death, have garnered wide support from all walks of life in the country.

These moves have been objectively reported by most international media. However, a few overseas media have placed excessive interpretation on the cases and even taking the chance to make inappropriate comments on China's politics.

In fact, the decision is another resolute move by the ruling CPC to strengthen the enforcement of Party disciplines and continue to unswervingly push forward the rule of law.

In 1996, the rule of law was written into the outline of the ninth five-year plan for national economic and social development and the long-range objectives to 2010, becoming an important principle for guiding China's modernization drive.

The "rule of law" does not only mean running state affairs according to law, it also indicates that administrators must obey the law and handle state affairs through legal means. It is a comprehensive and profound change from the tradition of "rule by man," which had been practiced in China for thousands of years.

The rule of law can ensure that China's development is not affected by uncertain factors and avoid upheavals such as the Cultural Revolution.

Although China has encountered many difficulties, the country is marching forward along the right road. In 2010, a socialist system of laws with Chinese characteristics was established as scheduled. Solving problems through legal means has become the consensus of the Party and the people.

As the ruling party with more than 80 million members, the CPC has stipulated strict disciplines to ensure the Party's advanced nature.
