CPC issues 'legislation law' of Party

BEIJING - The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on Monday published two documents to regulate the formation of Party rules.
The two regulations are considered an important move to improve the CPC's internal management and sharpen intra-Party supervision.
One regulation is about which party organs are authorized to draft, approve, publish, amend and abolish party regulations and what procedures they should follow.
The other one details how party regulations should be put on records, reviewed, amended or abolished.
The two regulations are the first formal documents to regulate the formation of CPC rules since the founding of the CPC in 1921. They will affect more than 82 million members and 4 million CPC organs.
The newly published regulations are based on a temporary regulation on the formation of party rules issued in 1990.
Prof. Jiang Ming'an, with the Law School of Peking University, told Xinhua that the new CPC leadership expected to tighten up internal management through standardizing the formation of party rules and preventing randomness in this aspect.
"Stable and standard management of the CPC, the ruling party, is an important aspect of the rule of law in China," Jiang said.
Currently, the CPC operates under a comprehensive set of regulations but some were issued without proper research and some old rules have not been updated to keep up with changes in reality.
