BEIJING, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee on Wednesday published a directive on enhancing the political work of the Party.
The directive outlines the overall requirements on enhancing the political work of the Party and some key points, such as consolidating political faith, upholding the Party's political leadership, improving the Party's political capacity, purifying the political atmosphere, and effectively enforcing the directive.
The introduction of the directive is a major initiative launched for the implementation of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era as well as the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the CPC, says a press statement from the General Office of the CPC Central Committee.
It is also a major decision and plan on the political work of the Party that the CPC Central Committee has made on the basis of the summing up of historical experience and the latest practice, it says.
The political work of the Party must be strengthened, which is an internal demand arising from further progress in ensuring full and strict governance over the Party, as well as a natural requirement in upholding and strengthening overall Party leadership, the statement says.
The directive embodies the fundamental requirement of firmly upholding General Secretary Xi Jinping's status as the core of the CPC Central Committee and the whole Party as well as the authority of the CPC Central Committee and its centralized, unified leadership, the statement says, stressing that this is also the primary task of the political work of the Party.
