Summary: The Communist Party of China is looking to implement a better legal system for the entire country, according to a meeting from the Central Committee.

The Communist Party in China introduced guidelines that could be used to improve the legal system of the country, according to a report from the Boston Herald. The guidelines would help to strengthen the leadership of the party through law.


Last week, the 205-member Central Committee met to discuss what its goals would be for the upcoming year.

“I think the major goals are to maintain the party’s long-term rule and to curb corruption,” said Zhang Qianfan, a professor of constitutional law at Peking University in Beijing.

The document released by the Central Committee said that the country needs to improve its legal system, but it needs to be done under the leadership of the party.

“We should deftly use the legal procedure to turn the ideas championed by the party into the national will, and we should deftly use the legal procedure to turn personnel recommended by the party into leader of state agencies,” the document said.

The decisions made by the party did not offer any measures that would put checks on the party itself.

“This is urgently needed because many laws would be unconstitutional if that supervision system does not play its role,” said He Bing, a legal professor at China University of Political Science and Law.

“The system has been around for a while, but it has yet to play its role,” Zhang said.

The party said that China needs legal reviews of administrative decisions and needs to increase judicial independence in order to protect justice and aid in public trust.

The party suggested that a national circuit court be set-up along with holding government officials accountable for intervening in legal issues.
