CPC delegate election shows improved intra-Party democracy

(Xinhua)

BEIJING, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- After almost one year of campaigning, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has elected its delegates to the 18th National Congress, demonstrating both its understanding of democratic procedure and an optimized lineup with more younger, grassroots-level Party members.

Earlier this week, the CPC published a list of names for the 2,270 delegates for its 18th National Congress, which will be held in the second half of this year.

Improved election measures have shown that the Party does not regard the election as mere routine, but as an important demonstration of intra-Party democracy that will serve as a critical factor in establishing a substantial democracy in a socialist country.

At a press conference on the delegate election, the first of its kind in the Party's history, the Party's organization department said earlier this week the measures include a multi-candidate survey on preliminary candidates, expanded loss margins for candidates and the publication of the list of delegates.

Democracy is an indispensable goal for developing political civilization, as there can be no substantial democracy if there is no procedural democracy. Improved intra-Party democracy will help Party members exercise their rights and ensure that they can express their true opinions with their votes.

The Party has devoted itself to institutional innovation so as to adapt to ever-developing situations in and outside the Party. In the past decade, its intra-Party election system has evolved, with top decision-makers creating policies for more democratic elections. The Party's grassroots units have also implemented new election practices.
