Amending CPC Constitution significant to Party unity: spokesman


10:34, November 19, 2012

BEIJING, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) -- Amending the Constitution of the Communist Party of China (CPC), a decision adopted by the 18th CPC National Congress, is significant to maintain the Party unity in thoughts and actions, a spokesman said Sunday.

The 18th CPC National Congress approved on Nov. 14 an amendment to the CPC Constitution that includes the Party's latest achievements in theoretical innovation and practice.

The amendment was designed to "meet the CPC's objective needs of carrying forward Party work and stepping up Party building in a new situation," a spokesman of the secretariat of the national congress said in an interview with Xinhua.

"It is a key step to maintain the whole Party's unity in thoughts and actions, to accumulate wisdom and strength, and mobilize the whole Party," the spokesman said.

The amendment lists the Scientific Outlook on Development along with Marxism-Leninism, the Mao Zedong Thought, the Deng Xiaoping Theory and the important thought of Three Represents, as the Party's guidelines for action.

It also includes statements on the socialist system, path and theories with Chinese characteristics and on the need to promote ecological progress.

Reform and opening up is highlighted in the amendment as "the path to a stronger China" and the "salient feature" of the new period in China.
