BEIJING, Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday published the full text of a regulation on the united front work of the Communist Party of China (CPC) which took effect on May 18.
The regulation, which was passed at a meeting held by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, is the Party's first rule on the matter.
The new rule says it is essential for the CPC to unite all forces in society as China transforms itself, with reforms in almost every area.
It also stipulates that united front work should be carried out in line with the "Four Comprehensives" national strategic plan: to build a moderately prosperous society, deepen reform, implement the rule of law and strengthen CPC discipline.
During a three-day meeting that closed on May 20, Chinese President Xi Jinping urged authorities to pay close attention to united front work, improve working methods and pool strengths for the realization of the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation.
Targeted groups for united front work include non-CPC members, Chinese nationals living at home and abroad, religious groups, outstanding intellectuals and those working in the private sector.
The regulation calls for comprehensive mobilization of non-CPC social figures, bringing together positive incentives to realize the dream of a moderately prosperous society.
