General  Principles

 

 

 

The  Chinese people, during the long course of revolution, development, and reform,  have brought together the most extensive patriotic united front, which, under  the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and based on an alliance of  workers and farmers, is participated in by other political parties, public  figures without party affiliation, people’s organizations, ethnic minorities,  and patriots from all sectors of society, and is formed of all socialist  workers, builders of the socialist cause, patriots who support socialism, and  patriots who support the reunification of the country and strive for the  rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, including compatriots from the Hong Kong  Special Administrative Region, compatriots from the Macao Special Administrative  Region, compatriots from Taiwan, and overseas Chinese.

 

The  Constitution of the People’s Republic of China stipulates: the CPC-led system of  multiparty cooperation and political consultation shall exist and develop for a  long period of time.

 

The  Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) is an organization of  the Chinese people’s patriotic united front, an important institution of CPC-led  multiparty cooperation and political consultation, a major form for promoting  socialist democracy in China’s political life, an important component of the  country’s governance system, and a distinctively Chinese institutional  arrangement. The two main purposes of the CPPCC are to pursue unity and  democracy. In September 1949, the First Plenary Session of the CPPCC, acting to  fulfill the function of the National People’s Congress and representing the will  of all of the nation’s people, declared the founding of the People’s Republic of  China, playing an important role in history. Following the convention of the  First National People’s Congress in 1954, the CPPCC has continued to do much  work in the country’s political and social life and in international exchanges,  and has made important contributions. Since the Third Plenary Session of the  11th Central Committee of the CPC in December 1978, the CPPCC has further played  an important role in helping to restore, consolidate, and develop stability and  solidarity in the country’s political situation, in realizing a shift in the  focus of the work of the country toward economic development, in promoting  reform and opening up and the pursuit of socialist modernization, in striving to  reunify the nation, including Taiwan, and in opposing hegemony and safeguarding  world peace.

 

Following the  founding of the People’s Republic of China, led by the CPC, the people of all  ethnic groups in China crushed the system of exploitation, established a  socialist system, pursued socialist development, launched the great new  revolution of reform and opening up, and embarked on the path of socialism with  Chinese characteristics. With this, the class situation in Chinese society has  changed fundamentally. The alliance of workers and farmers has been further  consolidated. Intellectuals, like workers and farmers, are a force to be relied  on in the country’s socialist cause. Other political parties, which have, in the  people’s revolution, development, and reform, advanced and withstood tests  together with the CPC and made important contributions, have become political  allies of the workers, builders, and patriotic supporters of socialism to whom  they are tied; they are participating parties under socialism with Chinese  characteristics, and are increasingly playing their own important roles. All the  nation’s ethnic groups have formed socialist ethnic relations based on equality,  solidarity, mutual assistance, and harmony. Religious patriots are taking an  active part in the country’s socialist development. People involved in the  non-public economic sector and people who belong to new social strata are also  working for the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Compatriots  from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the Macao Special  Administrative Region and Taiwan and overseas Chinese love the motherland,  support China’s reunification, and back the country’s development. As the  country moves forward in its development, China’s patriotic united front has  greater vitality and continues to be an important tool of the Chinese people as  they unite and work together, and build and reunify the motherland. It shall be  further consolidated and become better developed.

 

Since  the 18th National Congress of the CPC in November 2012, based on foundations  laid by long-term efforts since the founding of the People’s Republic of China  and especially since the beginning of reform and opening up, historic change has  occurred in the cause of the country, and socialism with Chinese characteristics  has entered a new era. We are closer to, more confident about, and more capable  of realizing the goal of national rejuvenation than ever before. At the current  stage, the principal contradiction facing Chinese society is that between the  people’s ever-growing needs for a better life and unbalanced and inadequate  development. The basic dimension of the Chinese context—that our country is  still and will long remain in the primary stage of socialism—has not changed.  China’s international status as the world’s largest developing country has not  changed. Owing to domestic factors and international influences, the struggle of  the people of our country against hostile forces and elements at home and abroad  will continue to be protracted, and a certain amount of class struggle will  continue to exist for a long time to come but is no longer the principal  contradiction in our society. The fundamental task of the Chinese people of all  ethnic groups is, under the leadership of the CPC, to follow the path of  socialism with Chinese characteristics, adhere to the basic line for the primary  stage of socialism, fulfill the central task of economic development, uphold the  Four Cardinal Principles, continue to reform and open up, be self-reliant,  hardworking, and enterprising, and build China into a great modern socialist  country that is prosperous, strong, democratic, culturally advanced, harmonious,  and beautiful. The CPPCC shall, under the guidance of Marxism-Leninism, Mao  Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the Theory of Three Represents, the  Scientific Outlook on Development, and Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with  Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, hold high the banner of patriotism and  socialism, strengthen confidence in the path, theory, system, and culture of  socialism with Chinese characteristics, be committed to achieving great unity  and solidarity, and find balance between commonality and diversity. It shall,  based on the political foundations of love for the People’s Republic of China,  support for the leadership of the CPC and the socialist cause, and concerted  efforts toward realizing the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation, further  consolidate and develop the patriotic united front, mobilize all positive  factors and unite all people that can be united, expand common ground and the  convergence of interests, be of one heart and mind, pool the knowledge and  energies of all, work in accordance with the five-sphere integrated plan and the  four-pronged comprehensive strategy for building socialism with Chinese  characteristics, preserve and develop political stability and solidarity, work  consistently to promote coordinated material, political, cultural and ethical,  social, and ecological advancement, and strive to achieve the two centenary  goals and to realize the Chinese Dream of national rejuvenation.

 

The  system of CPC-led multiparty cooperation and political consultation is a basic  political system of our country; it is a socialist political party system with  Chinese characteristics. The CPPCC is an important political and organizational  form by which the system of CPC-led multiparty cooperation and political  consultation is practiced. The CPPCC shall, on the basis of the principles of  the long-term coexistence of, and mutual oversight, sincerity, and the sharing  of rough and smooth between the CPC and other political parties and public  figures without party affiliation, promote their unity and cooperation within  the CPPCC and fully reflect and give play to the distinctive features and  strengths of our country’s new style of socialist political party  system.

 

Consultative  democracy is a model and strength unique to China’s socialist democracy. The  CPPCC is an important channel for socialist consultative democracy and a  specialist consultative body. It shall, focusing on the country’s key tasks, put  consultative democracy into practice throughout the whole process of the  performance of its duties, improve the content and forms of consultation and  deliberation, strive to build consensus and promote unity, and play an  irreplaceable role in advancing the extensive, multilevel, and institutionalized  development of consultative democracy and in the modernization of China’s system  and capacity for governance.

 

All  activities of the CPPCC shall be in line with the Constitution of the People’s  Republic of China as the fundamental code.

 

The  National Committee and local committees of the CPPCC shall, in accordance with  law, uphold the rights of all participating organizations and individuals to  perform their duties in line with this Charter.
