Duowei News: Xi Jinping to Amend Constitution: “The Party’s Leadership Is the Most Essential Feature of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics”

Duowei reported that, in addition to the elimination of term limits, Xi Jinping also recommended that the Constitution be amended to include the following language: “Chinese Communist Party leadership is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics.” Regarding what was delivered in his political report at the 19th National Congress held in October 2017, Xi Jinping reiterated that, “The Chinese Communist Party leadership is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics.” The greatest advantage of the system of socialism with Chinese characteristics is that the Chinese Communist Party leads it; that China must uphold the party’s leadership over all work; and that the party is leading everything.” It is expected that the amendment will be passed during the National People’s Congress which started on March 5. According to Duowei, in 1982, Deng Xiaoping deleted the phrase, “The Chinese Communist Party is the core leadership of the entire Chinese people” from the Constitution. Deng believed that there were too many disadvantages to having the party take the leadership of everything indicating, “An over-concentration of power could turn into leadership by an individual.” The article went on to state, “However, 36 years later, the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party will very likely to be written into the constitution again.”
