New CPC regulation stresses role of leading Party members' groups
A meeting of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on Friday passed a regulation stressing the need to strengthen the Party's role in state organs and non-Party units.
"Leading Party members' groups" in state organs, organizations and non-Party units are important channels to guarantee the implementation of the line and policies of the Party and the system must be strengthened and improved, according to a statement released after the meeting presided over by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
According to the CPC constitution, such groups may be formed in state organs, organizations or other non-Party units to ensure the Party line and policies are properly implemented. Such organizations cover a broad spectrum, but include the State Council, the Supreme People's Court, ministries, state-owned enterprises and organizations like the China Writers Association.
Unlike elected Party committees, the composition of a leading Party members' group is decided by the Party organization that approves it.
The regulation helps standardize the work of leading Party members' groups, strengthen CPC's leadership and improve CPC's capability of governance, it was agreed at the meeting.
CPC committees at all levels were reminded of the importance and urgency of improving organizational work.
