Official vows to promote greater Party democracy

Competitive elections and tenure system will help push ‘crucial task’

A senior official of the Communist Party of China pledged on Tuesday to carry out greater intra-Party democracy, a task experts said is crucial.

The pledge came as the 91-year-old Party elected 2,270 delegates to attend a national congress later this year.

The elections, held from October to July, have seen an unprecedented choice, with every 100 delegates elected from a field of more than 115 candidates.

This represents a bigger choice than the 2002 and 2007 congresses.

The elected delegates will represent more than 82 million CPC members to attend the Party’s 18th National Congress.

They will vote in a once-in-five-year leadership election of the CPC Central Committee and its Political Bureau Standing Committee.

They will also review reports delivered by the CPC Central Committee and the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the CPC.

Wang Jingqing, deputy head of the CPC Organization Department, said members of the CPC Central Committee, a high-level ruling body of the Party, will also be elected with a wide pool, but the exact figure has yet to be decided.

Wang, speaking at one of the first news conferences concerning the congress, said on Tuesday that intra-Party democracy is the lifeline of the Party and should be steadily encouraged across the board.
