China to appoint more non-communist officialsMarch 2nd, 2008 - 8:25 pm ICT by admin
Beijing, March 2 (Xinhua) More people from outside the Communist Party are expected to be appointed to high offices in China, a spokesman of the forthcoming annual political advisory session has said. “Many non-communist personages have taken up posts at government departments and judicial bodies since China started its reform and opening up (toward the late 1970s),” said Wu Jianmin, spokesman for the First Session of the 11th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
Wan Gang, of the China Zhi Gong Dang (Party for Public Interest), was appointed science and technology minister last April. Two months later, Chen Zhu, non-party member, became minister of health.
Their appointments represented “major moves” of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in enhancing socialist democracy and pushing forward multi-party cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the CPC, Wu said at a press conference on the eve of the annual political advisory session.
The CPPCC session is slated to open Monday at the Great Hall of the People in central Beijing, and will last 11 days.
“Across China, more than 31,000 non-Communists are working as officials at and above county level, of whom at least 6,000 work at government organizations and judicial bodies at various levels,” he said.
