The Communist Party of China (CPC) is at the core of China’s leadership, and it is the inevitable choice and result of the social revolution historically, theoretically and practically, the People’s Daily Online said in an editorial published on Feb. 26.
Core leadership is vital to any country. Chairman Mao Zedong made clear that the force at the core leading our cause forward is the CPC and the theoretical basis guiding our thinking is Marxism-Leninism, at the first National People’s Congress held in 1954.
CPC leadership is the most substantive feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics and the biggest advantage of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics integrated.
In the past five years, the historic achievements made in reform and opening up, socialist modernization and the vitality of socialism with Chinese characteristics are fundamentally attributed to the strong leadership of the CPC with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core.
Over the past five years, the Party’s ability to create, power to unite, and energy to fight have all been significantly strengthened. And that’s the fundamental reason for all the achievements the country has made in the five years led by the CPC Central Committee.
A grand career has to be led by a great party. The authority and unified, centralized leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core must be strongly upheld for the country to better shoulder historic missions in the new era, better proceed with the grand cause and better realize the grand dream.
Guaranteeing the authority and unification, centralized leadership of the CPC Central Committee allows the CPC to achieve one victory after another. Just like Comrade Deng Xiaoping pointed out that any leadership must have a core, and a coreless leadership is unreliable.
In retrospect of the development of the Constitution, one can deeply feel that the Constitution is closely related to the hard work and notable achievements made by the CPC and the people, as well as the precious experiences accumulated by the CPC and the people.
Never forget why you started, and you can accomplish your mission. The editorial called for the Chinese people to closely unite around the CPC Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core, be guided by Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, make new achievements and victories, and march toward the great goal of national rejuvenation.
