BEIJING, July 31 (Xinhua) -- An article by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, on the self-reform of the Party will be published Thursday in the 15th issue of the Qiushi Journal this year.
The article by Xi, also Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, called on CPC members to stay true to the Party's founding mission and promote its self-reform.
The article says the Party's long-term governance requires commitment to its original aspiration and mission, as well as the spirit of self-reform.
The CPC is a political party armed with Marxism, the article says, noting that the original aspiration and mission of the Party has always been seeking happiness for the Chinese people and rejuvenation for the Chinese nation, which is embodied in the Party's consistent endeavors.
It takes a strong spirit of self-reform to remain true to the original aspiration and keep the mission firmly in mind. And the Party's self-reform is facing arduous and long-term tasks and not any thought of a pause or rest should be allowed, the article stresses.
The key to staying true to the Party's founding mission calls for the consciousness to face up to problems and the courage to conduct self-examination, the article says, adding that the key lies with leading cadres at all levels, especially senior cadres.
