Xi-Li’s “China Dream”
On March 21, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)
announced changes in its provincial party secretaries posts.
They will affect several provinces, including Hebei,
Heilongjiang, Jiangxi, Henan and Hunan.
With that, 31 provincial secretary vacancies will be filled in,
and “Xi-Li”s institution’ is officially settled in, heading towards its “China Dream.”
After the “two sessions”, CCP recently adjusted the positions
of seven provincial secretaries and a number of deputies.
Several officials are moving from central
to local positions.
The Central Politics and Law Committee’ Secretary-General
Zhou Benshun is now serving as Hebei Province secretary;
Li Jianhua, deputy of the National School of Administration,
becomes party secretary of Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region;
China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) chairman
Guo Shuqing is the deputy secretary of Shandong Province;
State Council Research Director Xie Fuzhan,
is serving as a deputy secretary of Henan Province.
However, former Provincial Secretary of Qinghai Province,
Qiang Wei, was transferred to Jiangxi Province.
This position was taken by Qinghai Province
Governor Luo Huining.
Local succession provinces include,
Heilongjiang, Henan, and Hunan.
So far, 31 provincial party secretaries’ posts were filled in,
averaging 59 years of age, with 6 being Politburo’ members.
U.S “Chinese Social Democratic Party” Central Committee
Moderator Liu Yinquan spoke on these changes.
Liu Yinquan: Without democratic elections,
these cadres are appointed centrally.
In this situation, they will have to take central orders,
and be responsible centrally, instead of to the people.
If the system doesn’t change, the cadres appointing method
doesn’t change too; I don’t think there will be a real change.’
At present, the CCP repeatedly announces,
they will not accept the so called Western ‘evil ways.’
Instead, they will adhere
to “the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics”.
On March 17, CCP’ and China’ new leader Xi Jinping
delivered a speech at the National People’s Congress.
Xi called upon 1.3 billion Chinese people
to strive for national prosperity and the “China Dream”.
Japan’s “TV Asahi” noted in its report,
Xi mentioned “China Dream” nine times in his speech.
Commentator Lin Baohua remarked, at present China is full
of corrupt officials, the gap between rich and poor is huge,
food is not safe, distrust exists between people, with tensions
between Han Chinese and ethnic minorities, and relation with neighboring countries being unprecedentedly bad, etc.
Aren’t these caused by the “The road of socialism
with Chinese characteristics”?
If it continues to go on this road, is it not obvious
whether this “China Dream” is a dream or nightmare!
He Qinglian, U.S. economist, wrote a commentary article
There she said, from the experiences of over a hundred
“Third World” developments, people realize a basic truth:
If a country wants to develop, it must first have
a good social system as a guarantee.
To protect the civil rights of the people,
and at least to be able to punish corrupt officials.
Liu Yinquan believes, Xi and Li’s cadres appointing system
is a just continuation of the original system.
Under this system, the cadres lack supervision,
and are only responsible to the upper leadership.
Therefore in the future, the corruption of cadres
will still be inevitable.
Liu Yinquan: ‘Let the people select, elect and supervise
the cadres, dismiss the incompetent and the corrupt ones.
Only this way the problem of cadres’ corruption
can be solved.’
Beijing netizen Wei Ping said, the people will not believe
CCP’s slogans, as CCP cadres do not reveal their properties.
Before, when people take some anti-corruption actions,
the CCP will deploy army and military to suppress them.
Wei Ping asks, “How to execute the anti-corruption”?
This was a key part of the CCP’s Fourth Plenary Session,
yet, the corruption became even more and more rampant.
Wei Ping: ‘Why does the government’s credibility fall,
and people do not believe what they tell them?
Because what they say are lies. Now the leaders in courts,
prosecutors, public security, as well as all provinces, are all former officials, many of them being corrupt.
How can they think for the people?
Can they spit their corrupt staff out?’
He Qinglian’s article also points out, now CCP’ government
can’t unite even its officials, not to mention the people.
The CCP talks about “strong and prosperous,
democratic, civilized, harmonious”.
Yet, people only see the elites being rich and powerful –
at the “two sessions” only the elite politicians, economists and intellectuals have united and celebrated.
He Qinglian asks in conclusion, even if this ‘China Dream’
gets achieved, how is this related to the people?
