Business Overview

The National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference(CPPCC) is a Chinese people’s patriotic united front organization. It is an important institution of multiparty cooperation and political consultation led by the CPC. It is an important way to promote socialist democracy in China’s political activities.

 

As China’s broadest possible patriotic united front organization, the CPPCC carries out the principle of “great unity, great solidarity and embracing all representative figures.” Its units consist of the CPC, eight democratic parties, personages without party affiliation, eight major mass organizations — the Communist Youth League of China, All-China Federation of Trade Unions, All-China Women’s Federation, All-China Youth Federation, All-China Federation of Industry and Commerce, China Association for Science and Technology, All-China Association of Taiwan Compatriots and All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese, representative figures of the 56 ethnic groups and five major religious groups in China, representatives of the compatriots in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Macao Special Administrative Region and Taiwan as well as returned overseas Chinese, and representative figures from other circles. The CPPCC features extensive organizational representation and great political inclusiveness and truly shows the great unity and great alliance of the entire Chinese nation.

 

As an important institution of multiparty cooperation and political consultation led by the CPC, the CPPCC plays an important role in developing the cause of Chinese socialist multiparty cooperation. Within the CPPCC, all democratic parties can air opinions about state and local important affairs and major problems arising in the course of multiparty cooperation through various forms in their names, conduct political consultation, exercise mutual supervision together with the CPC, and help raise the CPC’s governing capacity and their own self-improvement.

 

The CPPCC is an important institution for developing socialist democracy in China’s political activities. There are two important forms of socialist democracy in China: The people can exercise their rights through election and voting, and consensus on matters of common concern is reached through full consultation among the people prior to major decision-making. The CPPCC is an important channel and means for exercising consultative democracy. Personages from all political parties, mass organizations and ethnic groups and various sectors of society participate in the deliberation of state affairs through consultation at the CPPCC’s meetings and in its activities. This is a vivid reflection of the expansion of people’s democracy and ensuring that the people are the? masters of the country.
