China’s Communist Party Meets, Prepares for Key Party Congress

BEIJING – The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) began a plenary session on Wednesday to finalize preparations for the five-yearly 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, which is scheduled to begin next week.

The Central Committee comprises the country’s 200 key officials.

The plenary session will discuss a number of documents that will be voted on during the Congress, including an amendment to the party’s constitution and two reports on the work of the CPC and its anti-corruption commission in the past five years, according to the state news agency Xinhua.

The three documents gather opinions and suggestions from lawmakers as well as from regional representatives and other institutions, according to the official statement.

The 19th National Congress of the CPC is set to begin on Oct. 18.

During the Congress, members will vote on whether to approve these documents and elect a new Central Committee, including a new 24-member Politburo and a new seven-member Standing Committee.

The Congress is also scheduled to elect a new CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the party’s anti-corruption watchdog, which has sanctioned over 1.4 million members of the party in the last five years.

The Congress is also expected to re-elect Secretary-General Xi Jinping as the party’s leader and to increase Xi’s influence by including his ideology in the constitution of the Communist Party.

It remains unknown who will join the new Standing Committee, as five of the current seven members have already exceeded the age of 68, the usual time for retirement, according to the unwritten rules of the party.
