Hong Kong based magazine Cheng Ming Monthly published an article “Chinese Communist Party to Launch Big Party Rectification in the Fall” in the July 2008 Issue. According to the article, former member of the standing committee of the CCP’s polibureau, and former chairman of the National Political Consultative Conference Li Ruihua proposed to stop using the name of Chinese Communist Party.
In an internal party conference, Li said that the CCP’s development and theory are evolving constantly to adapt to the fast changing society. From a long term perspective, he suggested to change the party’s name to People’s Party or Socialist Party.
