“Thoughts Jinping” what was the end of the XIX Congress of the Communist party of China
In Beijing has ended, the XIX Congress of the Communist party of China.
The Congress of people’s representatives meets every five years and to what extent is a routine event, since the key decisions to disclose it, usually taken in advance and not be news to neither the party leadership nor to analysts.
But there are exceptions. On the eve of the XIX Congress talked a lot about growing concentration of power in the hands of the current President of China XI Jinping, who stood at the helm at the last Congress five years ago. It was assumed that his old ally Wang Qishan, head of the Central Commission for discipline inspection, and in fact internal security forces, will replace Li Keqiang as Prime Minister of the state Council of the PRC, but that did not happen.
But more interesting is what happened at the Congress. For example, “Thought XI Jinping” was included in the Charter of the CCP.
In fact, the Congress began with a three-hour speech si, where he presented his philosophy under the title “Thoughts of XI Jinping of Chinese-style socialism in the new era”. Before him in the text of the document appeared only Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping. The truth referred to a “theory of the three represents” Jiang zemina, but no Chinese leader except Mao Zedong, did not describe their philosophy as “thought”.
Now any attempt to challenge the decision of the President XI automatically is in conflict with the Charter of the CCP in China, this situation is not called winning.
Who is the greatest mother of history is valuable?
This in China has not been since the days of Mao. Coupled with the increasing glorification of the activities of XI Jinping in all areas of life, making his “thoughts” in the basic party documents suggests a new “Chairman Mao” and little red books of his sayings in the pocket of every Chinese.
Proceedings of XI Jinping, China has replicated. Don’t want a pocket book of quotations — you can download a collection of quotes to your mobile phone.
But, as noted by senior research fellow, Institute for Far Eastern studies Vasily Kashin, there are differences from Mao’s regime: “si still faces significant resistance at the level of regional leaders. Not all accepted at the center at his insistence, the decisions are brought to the execution field, he says. — A typical example is the difficulty of implementation of the decisions on the elimination of excess capacity in some industries, financed from local budgets — they are not performed systematically. Mao Zedong after the “cultural revolution” had a problem with it”.
“Only in order to emphasize the ambitious nature of the person of XI Jinping and the credibility that he has already won, you can compare it with Mao — agrees Deputy Director of the Institute of Asian and African Andrei Karneev. — And so this is a completely different era, different people. And nobody in China, including all the top PDA doesn’t dream about being back in the past”.
To expect a repeat of the 1966-76 years fully still not worth it, believes Kashin.
Though, because almost all of the current political leadership, including himself, XI Jinping, came from the families repressed during the cultural revolution. However the purging of the party and the bureaucracy is in full swing.
In the five years since the beginning of the reign of si through the Central Commission for discipline inspection were 1 million 300 thousand people, reminds Vasily Kashin. Although most of them escaped penalties on the party line — reprimands, reassignment, layoffs, 10-15 percent of the defendants in these cases went to jail. The fight against corruption, which during his first term raised to the skies, XI Jinping, is in full swing, addressing the practical tasks and the goals of the further consolidation of power.
“Master si said”
In fact, the very thoughts of XI Jinping are not new, especially the first one, “ensuring the leading role of the CPC in all fields of activity”. The second idea emphasizes that all changes were done for the sake of the people, and the third — the inevitability and necessity of reform.
The reforms have rather big.
The Congress approved a plan for the long term — to 2050 — China’s development, further enriching the country and its population and an increasingly active presence on the world stage.
“Fat” 2000 years of double-digit growth in the past, and significant distortions in the economy now have to be corrected.
“On the one hand, older, established over 30 years of policy reforms, the state apparatus has a passive resistance to the policy of si, on the other, the formation of this layer was due to systemic corruption, often wore more wild than anything seen in Russia, — said Vasily Kashin. She has attained such a level that there was a threat of loss of control over important areas of policy.”
