The Jiusan Society is one of the major democratic parties in China. Found in 1946, it has its name referring to the date of China’s victory in the War of Anti-Japanese Aggression on September 3, 1945.

The party’s political stand is to carry on the tradition of democracy and science. It had more than 164,000 members across the nation by the end of 2016, mostly intellectuals in the fields of science, technology, education and medicine.

During the 19th National Congress of Communist Party of China, CGTN interviewed Dr. Wang Huiyao, a central committee member of the Jiusan Society on China’s democratic consultation.

Wang made a positive comment on the report made by General Secretary Xi Jinping of the Communist Party of China’s Central Committee, in the 19th CPC National Congress. He said that the CPC is really motivating all the parties, so that every major decision of the CPC is consulted and discussed among the democratic parties. He stressed that the democratic parties have channels to impact policy-making in China.

As to the objectives set in Xi’s report, Wang said China has long-range planning and objectives, and Xi’s report has much emphasis on the international, global and common development of the mankind, not only for China, but also for the world in the future.

Wang said that he sees in Xi’s report that the democratic consultation is emphasized among the different parties, groups and societies, and even among the social organizations like think tanks. So it’s quite relevant for Jiusan Society and other parties to have even wider base for the decision-making and democratic consultation.

When it comes to China’s next five years of development, Wang said, the country will have more development on the right track, with more democratic decision-making. He believes that democratic parties in China should be strengthened, and play more of a role in the decision-making process, and offer better policies and solutions for the country’s development in the long run.

  • Trump’s tax cut bill more of a political game

    Trump won the presidential election on the promise of helping the poor. But he is doing just the opposite. His pro-rich measures will have serious consequences for his presidency in the long run, because the further widening of the social income gap will become an almost insurmountable problem for him.

    US president-elect Donald Trump wants to see the next generation of innovation and production develop only in the US, not in the rest of the world. In his latest speech on Nov 21, on his policy plan for the first 100 days in office, he said that “I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here on our great homeland America creating wealth and jobs for American workers”. He promised to “withdraw from TPP” and “negotiate fair bilateral trade deals that bring jobs and industry back onto American shores.”

  • The world is watching

    China’s big annual two sessions political meeting could be one of the most important in recent years, given the uncertain international backdrop, according to experts.
