1、 General Requirements for Strengthening the Political Construction of the Party

 

A clear political stance is the fundamental requirement of our party as a Marxist political party. The political construction of the Party is the fundamental construction of the Party, which determines the direction and effectiveness of the Party's construction, and is related to the overall promotion of the great struggle, great project, great cause, and great dream.

 

During various periods of revolution, construction, and reform, our party has attached great importance to its political construction and formed a fine tradition of emphasizing politics. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee, with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, has placed the Party's political construction in a more prominent position, increased efforts, formed a clear political direction, eliminated serious political hidden dangers within the Party, and promoted significant historical achievements in the Party's political construction. At the same time, it must be soberly realized that the political problems existing within the Party have not yet been fundamentally solved. Some Party organizations and party members and cadres still have prominent problems of neglecting politics, downplaying politics, and not emphasizing politics. Some even have serious problems deviating from the direction of socialism with Chinese characteristics. To effectively solve these problems, it is necessary to further strengthen the political construction of the Party.

 

To strengthen the political construction of the Party, it is necessary to hold high the great banner of socialism with Chinese characteristics, fully implement the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the Party, adhere to the guidance of Marxism Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought, Deng Xiaoping Theory, the important thought of the "Three Represents", the Scientific Outlook on Development, and Xi Jinping's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics in the New Era, adhere to the Party's basic theory, basic line, and basic strategy, and implement the overall requirements of Party building in the new era, Strengthen the "Four Consciousnesses", firmly uphold the "Four Confidences", firmly uphold the core position of Xi Jinping's Party Central Committee and the core position of the entire Party, firmly uphold the authority and centralized unified leadership of the Party Central Committee, align with the political direction, adhere to the Party's political leadership, consolidate the political foundation, cultivate political vitality, prevent political risks, always maintain political identity, improve political ability, and build our Party stronger and stronger, Ensure that our Party always becomes the strong leadership core of the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and provide strong political guarantees for achieving the "Two Centenary Goals" and the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.

 

The purpose of strengthening the political construction of the Party is to strengthen political beliefs, strengthen political leadership, improve political capabilities, purify the political ecology, and achieve unity and action of the entire Party. We must take the Party Constitution as the fundamental principle and implement the Party's clear nature, purpose, guiding ideology, goals, line, and program. To highlight the fundamental position of the Party's political construction, we should focus on the Party's political attributes, mission, goals, and pursuit of sustained efforts. We must take the political construction of the Party as the leadership, and integrate political standards and requirements into the ideological, organizational, style, discipline, institutional, and anti-corruption struggles of the Party. We must strengthen political efforts to promote the comprehensive and strict governance of the Party and deepen its development, leading and driving the overall improvement of the quality of Party construction. We should adhere to a problem oriented approach, focus on targeted treatment, and address the strengths and weaknesses of prominent issues such as weak political awareness, unstable political stance, insufficient political ability, and improper political behavior. We should integrate the political construction of the Party into the entire process of formulating and implementing major decisions and deployments of the Party and the state, and ensure that the political construction of the Party is closely integrated and mutually promoted with various business work, especially the central work.

 

2、 Firm political beliefs

 

To strengthen the political construction of the Party, it is necessary to adhere to the guiding position of Marxism, arm the entire Party and educate the people with Xi Jinping's ideology of socialism with Chinese characteristics for the new era, consolidate the ideological foundation, remember the original mission, and unite the magnificent force of building the Chinese Dream with one heart and one mind.

 

(1) Persist in arming the mind with the Party's scientific theory

 

Marxism is the fundamental guiding ideology for building our party and country. Xi Jinping's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era is contemporary Chinese Marxism, 21st century Marxism, and an action guide for the entire Party and the people of the whole country to strive for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. It is a powerful ideological weapon that has been tested through practice and is full of practical power. It must be persisted in and continuously developed for a long time. We need to deeply study Xi Jinping's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era, strengthen ideological and political education, and promote learning and education to go deep, deep, and practical. We must truly achieve deep understanding, comprehensive understanding, and sincere practice, and consolidate the common ideological foundation of the unity and struggle of the entire Party and the people of the whole country. We must firmly uphold our ideals and beliefs, firmly establish the lofty ideals of communism and the common ideal of socialism with Chinese characteristics, stand up the spiritual backbone of Communists, resolutely prevent believing in ghosts and gods, truth and money without believing in Marxism and Leninism, and resolutely oppose various erroneous ideas that distort, tamper with, or negate Marxism. We must firmly adhere to the "Four Confidences" and firmly believe that socialism with Chinese characteristics is the dialectical unity of the theoretical logic of scientific socialism and the historical logic of Chinese social development. It is the fundamental direction of contemporary China's development and progress, and the only way to comprehensively build a moderately prosperous society, a modern and strong socialist country, and achieve the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. Leading cadres should take the lead in learning theory, strengthening faith, building a solid foundation of faith, supplementing the calcium of spirit, and stabilizing the rudder of thought. Implement the education plan for the ideals, beliefs, and purposes of young cadres, vigorously cultivate and cultivate socialist builders and successors with strong communist beliefs and high Marxist theoretical literacy.

 

(2) Firmly implement the Party's political line

 

The basic line of the Party in the primary stage of socialism, as the political line of the Party, is the lifeline of the Party and the country, and the happiness line of the people. It must be firmly defended and implemented. The more severe and complex the international and domestic situation is, the more critical it is for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The more important it is to maintain a clear mind and strategic determination, fully implement the Party's political line, and unify the two basic points of economic construction as the center, adhering to the Four Cardinal Principles, and adhering to reform and opening up in the great practice of socialism with Chinese characteristics. There must be no deviation or wavering. To adhere to the Party's political line, it is necessary to comprehensively implement the basic strategy of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, coordinate the overall layout of the "Five in One" and the strategic layout of the "Four Comprehensives", and make unremitting efforts to achieve the "Two Centenary Goals". The whole party should start from the party's political line when formulating and implementing major political policies; The deployment and promotion of major strategies, tasks, and tasks for the development of the Party and the state should be closely carried out around the Party's political line. Each region and department should determine their work ideas, deployment, and policy measures, consciously benchmark and calibrate deviations with the political line of the Party in a timely manner. We must resolutely fight against all words and actions that violate, distort, or negate the Party's political line.

Political stance is fundamental. The entire party must always firmly adhere to the Marxist position, adhere to the unity of party spirit and people's character, and firmly stand firm in the party spirit and people's position.

We must adhere to the fundamental purpose of putting the people at the center, establishing the Party for the public, and governing for the people, practicing the fundamental purpose of serving the people wholeheartedly, establishing sincere feelings for the people, placing the people in the highest position in our hearts, always believing in the people, firmly relying on the people, and making the people's aspiration for a better life the goal of our struggle. We need to highly unify our responsibility to the Party and the people, thinking, making decisions, and doing things from the perspective of the people's interests, advocating practical work and diligence for the people, and putting our energy and mind into stabilizing growth, promoting reform, adjusting structure, benefiting people's livelihoods, preventing risks, and ensuring stability. We should strive to solve the most direct and practical interests that the people are most concerned about, and strive to give them a greater sense of gain, happiness, and security.

 

3、 Adhere to the Party's political leadership

 

The Party is the highest political leadership force, and its leadership is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics and the greatest advantage of the socialist system with Chinese characteristics.

Adhering to and strengthening the comprehensive leadership of the Party, the most important thing is to firmly uphold the authority of the Party Central Committee and centralized and unified leadership; Resolutely upholding the authority of the Party Central Committee and centralized and unified leadership, the most crucial thing is to firmly uphold the core position of Xi Jinping as the Party Central Committee and the core position of the entire Party.

Establish and improve institutional regulations for the leadership role of state-owned enterprise party committees (party groups) and grassroots party organizations in rural, public institutions, and street communities. To implement the provisions of the Constitution and formulate and modify relevant laws and regulations, it is necessary to clearly define the legal status of the Party's leadership in related work. The requirement of adhering to the comprehensive leadership of the Party will be incorporated into the organizational laws of the National People's Congress, the government, the courts, and the procuratorates, as well as into the articles of association of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, democratic parties, federations of industry and commerce, people's organizations, state-owned enterprises, higher education institutions, and relevant social organizations.

The Party Central Committee is the highest leadership organ of the Party, the brain and center of the Party's organizational system, and implements centralized and unified leadership over major work related to the development of the Party and the country. Major policy issues involving the entire Party and the country can only be decided and explained by the Party Central Committee. Local party committees should, under the leadership of the Party Central Committee and higher-level party committees, comprehensively lead the economic and social development of the region, take full responsibility for party building in the region, and resolutely correct the weakening of party leadership, lack of party building, and inadequate comprehensive strict governance of the party. The grassroots organizations of the Party should focus on improving their organizational strength, highlighting political functions, strengthening political guidance, and making great efforts to solve the problem of weakness and laxity.

The Party's discipline inspection commissions at all levels should further strengthen the functional positioning of the Party's specialized supervisory organs, comprehensively supervise and hold accountable for discipline, and firmly uphold the seriousness and authority of the Party Constitution, Party regulations, and Party discipline. The Party's working organs should better play the role of the Party Committee's staff assistant, improve the political and effective performance of their duties, strive to participate in the timely and effective use, and better serve the Party Committee's decision-making and ensure the implementation of decisions.
