CPC delegates urged to faithfully perform duties


08:49, August 14, 2012

BEIJING, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- The People's Daily, the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China (CPC), will carry a commentary on Tuesday calling on newly elected delegates to the CPC National Congress to faithfully perform their duties.

A total of 2,270 delegates have been elected to represent more than 82 million CPC members and attend the Party's 18th National Congress, which is scheduled to be held in the second half of this year.

The elected delegates have set a solid ideological and organizational basis for the success of the national congress, according to the commentary.

At the congress, they will hear and review the reports by the CPC Central Committee and the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC. They will also discuss and decide upon major Party issues and elect the new central leadership.

The newspaper noted the 18th national congress is the first CPC national congress held after a tenure system was adopted for delegates to Party congresses at all levels at the 17th national congress in 2007.

The system is designed to promote the Party's internal democracy by bringing the role of Party delegates into full play and empowering delegates to supervise Party committees at all levels.

Under the system, in addition to the rights during the convening of sessions, Party delegates will also have the right to supervise activities of the Party committees at the same levels and give their opinions and proposals during the intervals between sessions.

The newly elected delegates bear more responsibilities than their predecessors; therefore, there is higher demand on their qualifications, according to the commentary.

The newspaper urged the delegates to deepen investigation at grass-roots levels, listen to the people and ask their opinions so as to get the ordinary citizens' voices heard in the upcoming CPC congress.

During the intervals between sessions, the delegates should keep close ties with other CPC members and the people, do their own jobs well, and play a greater role in promoting scientific development and social harmony, the newspaper said.
