Gov­er­nance ac­cord­ing to Con­sti­tu­tion

China Daily (Canada) - - COMMENT -

The Fourth Plenum of the 18th Cen­tral Com­mit­tee of the Com­mu­nist Party of China, which con­cluded last week, laid the road map for the rule of law in the coun­try and em­pha­sized the supremacy of the Con­sti­tu­tion.

The plenum also ear­marked Dec 4 as the Na­tional Con­sti­tu­tion Day.

The core of the rule of law is gov­er­nance ac­cord­ing to the Con­sti­tu­tion. This will make any ac­tion that vi­o­lates the Con­sti­tu­tion pun­ish­able un­der law.

It was also de­cided that the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the Na­tional Peo­ple’s Congress would su­per­vise the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion.

More chan­nels will be made avail­able for peo­ple to study the Con­sti­tu­tion.

Spe­cial classes will be in­tro­duced in schools to make stu­dents aware of the essence and im­por­tance of the Con­sti­tu­tion. And civil ser­vants will take oath on the Con­sti­tu­tion be­fore as­sum­ing their posts.

The plenum’s em­pha­sis on the Con­sti­tu­tion will have far-reach­ing con­se­quences and con­sol­i­date the foun­da­tion of so­cial­ist rule of law with Chi­nese char­ac­ter­is­tics.
