The Head of the Organization Department of the Central Committee on the revision and promulgation of the Regulations on the Work of the Party and State Organs of the Communist Party of China on the Work of Grass-roots Organizations
Recently, the CPC Central Committee issued the revised Regulations on the Work of the Party and State Organs at the Grass-roots Level (hereinafter referred to as the Regulations). On the occasion of the publication of the Regulations, the head of the Central Organization Department answered questions from journalists on the revision and implementation of the Regulations.
A: The Regulations issued by the CPC Central Committee in June 2010, as the basic regulations for the Party building of the organs, have played an important role in institutionalizing, standardizing and scientific work of the Party. Since the 18th National Congress of the Party, the situation and tasks facing the Party building work of the organs have undergone great changes. The Party Central Committee, with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core, has made a series of important arrangements for the overall strict administration of the Party and the strengthening of the Party building of the organs, and has promoted the Party building of the organs to achieve remarkable results. Important progress has been made in the construction of the Party system, and the relevant inner-party laws and regulations issued in recent years have clearly requested the Party building work of the organs. The Party and state organs at all levels have conscientiously implemented the requirements of the Party Central Committee and have accumulated important experience in adhering to the Party's principle of managing the Party and promoting its comprehensive and strict administration. In the face of the new situation, new tasks and new requirements, much of the Regulation needs to be revised and improved.
In accordance with the relevant arrangements of the Party Central Committee, the Central Organization Department, together with the State Supervision and Supervision Commission of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Work Committee of the Central and State Organs, has done a good job in revising the Regulations. Since the second half of 2018, we have extensively listened to the opinions of the organizations of the Party committees of all provinces, districts and municipalities on the amendments to the Regulations, conducted field research in nine provinces, districts and cities, conducted in-depth discussions on the key issues of revision of the Regulations, and combed and summarized more than 1,400 suggestions for revision. After the draft amendment to the Regulations has been formed, a forum will be held to solicit the opinions and suggestions of some Party organizations of the central and state organs, as well as the Party committees and departments of some provinces, cities and counties, and the working committees of the organs and units of the organs. In November 2019, General Secretary Xi Jinping successively chaired a meeting of the Standing Committee of the Central Political Bureau and a meeting of the Central Political Bureau to review and adopt the draft of the regulations. On December 27, the CPC Central Committee issued the Regulations.
The newly revised Regulations thoroughly implement Xi Jinping's socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era, carry out the general requirements of the Party building in the new era and the Party's organizational line in the new era, and fully absorb the theoretical, practical and institutional innovation achievements of the Party work of the organs in recent years. The promulgation and implementation of the Amendments to the Regulations are of great significance to strengthening and improving the Party building of the organs, improving the quality of the Party building of the organs in an all-round way, giving full play to the role of the Party organizations at the grass-roots level of the organs, and promoting the governance of the organs and the development of various undertakings.
A: This revision of the Regulations not only embodies the directional, principled, but also highlights the practical and pertinence, and mainly follows the following principles: First, under the guidance of Xi Jinping's socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era, we should fully implement the important instructions and deployment requirements of General Secretary Xi Jinping and the CPC Central Committee on party building, especially the Party building work of organs. The second is to follow the Party Constitution as the fundamental principle and take the Party's political construction as the leader, concretize the amendment of the Party Constitution of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China to the functions and responsibilities of the Party organizations at the grass-roots level and the leading responsibilities of the Party groups (Party committees), etc. Third, we should adhere to the problem-oriented approach, highlight the demands of the party and state organs primarily as political organs, focus on solving such problems as \"dark under the lights\" in party building, put forward effective measures, strengthen institutional safeguards, and serve the purpose of upholding and improving the socialist system with Chinese characteristics and promoting the modernization of the national governance system and governance capacity. The fourth is to sum up the local practical experience in depth, refine and rise to the system provisions, use grass-roots experience to guide grass-roots practice, and strive for guidance and strong maneuverability.
A: The newly revised Regulations have kept the original framework basically unchanged, and the chapters have been adjusted to enrich and improve the content. Mainly in the following several aspects have been revised: first, improve the work of the organs at the grass-roots party organization guiding ideology, objective principles. The requirements of General Secretary Xi Jinping to be a good \"three examples\" and to build a model organ should be written into the Regulations, and it is proposed that the work of the party organizations at the grass-roots level of the organs should follow the five principles. Second, appropriate adjustments should be made to the Party's organization's establishment and duties. In accordance with the relevant requirements of the Party Central Committee, the term of office of the Party organizations at the grass-roots level shall be revised, the conditions for the selection of party secretaries at the grass-roots level of the organs and the leadership system for the discipline inspection committee of the organs shall be clarified, and the duties of the party committees and discipline inspection committees of the organs shall be further enriched. Third, put the party's political construction in the first place, and put forward the specific requirements to strengthen the party's political construction. Fourth, in strengthening the education and management of party members, we should strictly implement the party's organizational life system, stress that leading cadres of party members should take the lead in participating in dual organizational life, and organize and guide party members in organs to play a vanguard and exemplary role. Fifth, strengthen the supervision function of the Party organizations at the grass-roots level of the organ, demand that the leading cadres of the Party members be regarded as the focus of supervision, and increase the content of the supervision and discipline enforcement by the Party organizations at the grass-roots level of the organ. Sixth, with regard to the building of the ranks of party affairs workers, it is necessary to use the posts of party affairs work as an important platform for training and training organ cadres, to ensure the strength of party affairs work and to pay attention to mobilizing the enthusiasm of party affairs cadres in the organs. Seventh, it is necessary to improve the leadership system in the Party building work of the organs, clarify the division of responsibilities between the working committees of the organs and the party groups of units (party committees), and stipulate the working procedures for the party groups (party committees) to discuss and decide on important matters such as the establishment adjustment of grass-roots party organizations, the recruitment of party members and the punishment of party members.
Q: Since the 18th National Congress of the CPC, the CPC Central Committee has made important arrangements to strengthen the Party's political construction.
A: Political construction of the Party is the fundamental building of the Party. Since the 18th National Congress of the Party, the Party Central Committee has made a series of important arrangements to promote the party's political construction, emphasizing that it is necessary to put the party's political construction in the first place and take the party's political construction as the leading position. General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out that the central and state organs are first and foremost political organs, and must take a clear-cut stand on politics, unswervingly strengthen the party's overall leadership, and unswervingly promote the party's political construction; and taking the lead in achieving \"two maintenance\" is the primary task of strengthening the party building of the central and state organs. The Regulations thoroughly implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions, thoroughly implement the important arrangements of the Party Central Committee, lead the whole article with the party's political construction, make a series of regulations and make clear requirements. In the general part, it is emphasized that it is necessary to be a good example of the \"three\" and to build a model organ, and to carry out the political standards and political requirements in the whole process of work and in all aspects of career development. The special chapter on \"Political Construction of the Party\" has been added, making ideological and political work an important part of the Party's political construction in the organs, calling for the implementation of the Party's political construction responsibilities, deepening the theoretical armed forces, strictly enforcing the Party's political discipline and rules, improving its political ability, strengthening its political responsibility, and promoting the Party and state organs to take a good lead and demonstrate in strengthening the Party's political construction. In other chapters, the party's political construction requirements will be integrated into it, reflected in the education and management of party members, inner-party supervision, leadership support, and so on, as a whole to promote the implementation.
Q: The administration of Party members'education is the basic work of the Party organizations at the grass-roots level.
A: Party and government organs at various levels have more than 7.5 million Party members, which is the backbone of our party's ruling ranks. The Regulations adhere to regular and strict practices, make clear demands on the education and management of Party members, care for and care for Party members, give full play to the role of Party members and recruit Party members, strive to build a contingent of high-quality Party members, and serve the Party's ruling ability and fulfill its ruling mission. First, we should strengthen the education of party members, insist on the combination of centralized education and regular education, organize training and individual self-study, organize party members and members of leading bodies of party organizations to participate in centralized training, and improve the pertinence and effectiveness of study and education for party members. Second, it is necessary to strictly enforce the Party's organizational life, improve the quality of the \"three sessions and one lesson,\" implement the system of heart-to-heart talks, democratic appraisal of party members and theme party day, especially stressing that party members and leading cadres should consciously participate in dual organizational life and promote the building of their party branches into advanced party branches. Third, it is necessary to care for and care for Party members, and call for the establishment and improvement of a long-term mechanism of inner-party care and assistance, care for families who have died in the line of duty and have sacrificed party members and disabled party members on duty, and do a good job in the service of retired cadres, workers, party members and floating party members, so as to provide assistance to party members in need of life. The fourth is to give full play to the vanguard and exemplary role of Party members, propose to launch activities such as establishing Party members'vanguard posts, striving to serve the masses as model soldiers, and Party members'commitment to serve the masses in the community, and encourage Party members and cadres to build meritorious service. The fifth is to do a good job in recruiting party members, stressing the need to put political standards first, strictly develop procedures, strict work discipline, and ensure the quality of development.
A: The supervision of the Party's grass-roots organizations is an important link in the inner-party supervision system. The Regulations put forward specific requirements for the Party organizations at the grass-roots level to perform their duties of supervision and carry out daily supervision. On the object of supervision, we should give prominence to the supervision of leading cadres of party members, push leading organs and leading cadres to take the lead and play an exemplary and leading role. In terms of its work objectives, it is necessary to ensure that Party members strictly abide by the Party Constitution and Party discipline, strictly abide by and enforce the system, be loyal and clean and assume responsibility, and safeguard the unity and unity of the Party. In terms of supervision methods, it is necessary to regularly check the participation of Party members in Party organization life and the participation of Party members and leading cadres in dual organization life, urge party members and leading cadres to hold democratic life meetings, and give full-time deputy secretaries of party organizations at the grass-roots level to attend relevant meetings, so as to have a thorough understanding of the party members and cadres'compliance with political discipline and rules, the implementation of the overall strict administration of party responsibility and the adherence to democratic centralism.
A: General Secretary Xi Jinping stressed that doing a good job in party building in the organs of the new era cannot be separated from a contingent of highly qualified and specialized party cadres. In view of the problem that some units'party affairs personnel are not well-matched and their work force is insufficient, the Regulations clearly demand the building of the party affairs staff of the organs. First, it is necessary to establish a clear work orientation, stressing the need to use party work posts as an important platform for training and training cadres, and to select cadres with strong political, professional and good style of work to engage in party work part-time. The second is to further strengthen the work force, requiring units with fewer staff to ensure that there are special personnel responsible, and units with heavier tasks in party building and insufficient work force to appropriately increase personnel. Third, it is necessary to strengthen the building of the ranks of party secretaries at the grass-roots level in accordance with the requirements of observing faith, stressing dedication, having the ability and respect for conduct, and regularly train party affairs staff of organs to improve their quality and ability. Fourth, it is planned to arrange two-way exchanges between the full-time party staff of the organs and the administrative and professional staff, and take the part-time party work personnel to carry out the party work as an important reference for the cadres'annual examination and evaluation, and promptly discover, commend and publicize the advanced typical examples, so as to stimulate the vitality of the party work staff of the organs.
A: To strengthen and improve the Party building of the organs, we must hold up the responsibility system. The main bodies responsible for the Party building of organs include party committees at all levels, work committees of organs, discipline inspection and supervision work committees of organs, party groups of units (party committees), the units accredited to discipline inspection and supervision groups, and party committees and discipline inspection committees of organs. In particular, the amendment of the Party Constitution of the Nineteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China gives the Party group the responsibility to lead the Party building in its own unit, and the system and mechanism of the Party building work in the organs need to be adjusted accordingly. Around \"who will grasp\" this key question, the regulation summarizes the organ party construction work practice experience, has made the relatively big change in \"the leadership and the safeguard\" chapter. First, it is clear that the Party building work of the organs under the leadership of party committees at all levels shall be under the unified leadership of the working committees of the organs at the same level and under the specific leadership and management of the party groups (party committees) of the units. The second is to require the working committee of the organ to strengthen the unified leadership over the work of the party in its own organ, and to guide and urge the party group (party committee) to fulfill the main responsibility of the party building of the organ. Third, it is stipulated that the Party group (Party committee) should lead the work of the organs and units directly under the Party organization, inform the Party building work of the organs every year and accept comments, and at the same time strengthen the guidance of the Party building work of the subordinate units, the leading units or the units in charge of the Party organization. Fourth, make clear the working procedure of the party group (party committee) to discuss and decide on important matters such as the establishment and adjustment of grass-roots party organizations, the recruitment of party members and the punishment of party members. In order to promote and ensure the implementation of the Party building responsibility and give prominence to the Party building as the greatest achievements, the Regulations explicitly call for the implementation of the Party building responsibility of the organs and the strengthening of the Party building work of the organs to be included in the assessment of the leading bodies and leading cadres of all units, and the Party organization secretaries to pay attention to the evaluation and assessment of the Party building at the grass-roots level. In addition, the Regulations make specific provisions on the source and scope of use of funds for Party building work.
A: The vitality of the system lies in its implementation. In issuing the Circular of the Regulations, the CPC Central Committee has clearly demanded the study, publicity and implementation of the Regulations. The study, publicity and implementation of the Regulations should be regarded as an important task and widely publicized and interpreted through various media, so as to enable Party organizations at all levels and the broad masses of Party members and cadres, especially leading Party members and cadres, to thoroughly understand the spirit of the Regulations, comprehensively grasp the contents of the Regulations, and strictly abide by and implement the provisions of the Regulations. It is necessary to conscientiously organize and carry out study and training, incorporate the Regulations into the study contents of the party group (party committee)'s theoretical study center group and the education curriculum of the party school (administrative college), conduct special rotation training for the party affairs staff of the organs, and improve the ability to do a good job in the party work of the organs. It is necessary to strengthen the supervision and inspection of the implementation of the Regulations, pay attention to summing up experience, and promptly discover and resolve problems existing in the work. The Central Organization Department will hold special seminars on the study and implementation of the Regulations and strengthen supervision and guidance with relevant departments to ensure the effective implementation of the Regulations.
