People’s Daily Commentary: Responding to the Demands of the Times Requires a Study-oriented Party

Following the completion of the 4th Plenary Session of the 17th Central Committee of the CCP, People’s Daily published a commentary on the Party’s new direction to “construct a study-oriented party.” It listed Marxism, especially socialism with Chinese characteristics, as the field that should take priority. It asks party leaders to study and practice the socialist value system so as to be firm in their beliefs and stance, be clear-minded, and thoroughly follow through with the party’s directions and guidelines.
