Party’s vi­tal self-purification

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - COMMENT - — PEO­PLE’S DAILY

Ad­dress­ing the open­ing ses­sion of a re­cent work­shop on the Sixth Ple­nary Ses­sion of the 18th Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee at­tended by of­fi­cials at the pro­vin­cial and min­is­te­rial lev­els, Pres­i­dent Xi Jin­ping, also gen­eral sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, called on them to carry for­ward the Party’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary spirit, not to be lax even for a mo­ment in solv­ing ex­ist­ing prob­lems, and con­stantly meet the re­quire­ments of the times and the peo­ple.

As a 95-year-od po­lit­i­cal party, the CPC has be­come the back­bone of the Chi­nese peo­ple, and the rea­son lies in its courage to face up to prob­lems, to carry out self-scru­tiny, and its strong ca­pa­bil­ity to rem­edy what needs to be reme­died and pur­sue self-purification. This is an im­por­tant rea­son for the Party’s last­ing pros­per­ity and vi­tal­ity.

The Party’s courage to con­duct self-cor­rec­tion orig­i­nates from the fact that the Party has no spe­cial in­ter­ests ex­cept for the in­ter­ests for the whole nation and the peo­ple. It is be­cause it is with­out self­ish in­ter­ests that the Party can scru­ti­nize it­self.

The strict self-gov­er­nance cam­paign launched by the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with Xi Jin­ping as the core since the 18th Na­tional Congress of the CPC is an man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Party’s de­ter­mi­na­tion and will for self-im­prove­ment. Be­hind the the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal in­no­va­tions and all no­table achieve­ments scored in China’s re­form and de­vel­op­ment are the Party’s end­less pur­suit of the spirit of self-purification, self-in­no­va­tion and self-im­prove­ment.

No ex­ter­nal forces can beat down the CPC, a party that now has 89 mil­lion mem­bers and more than 4.4 mil­lion or­ga­ni­za­tions. The Party’s fate is in its own hands. With the courage to con­tinue its self-purification and self-cor­rec­tion, the Party will have the abil­ity to main­tain its vi­tal­ity.
