China Issues Regulation to Advance Rule of Law

The central authority of China has issued a regulation for Party and government chiefs to advance the rule of law.

The regulation was issued by the General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the General Office of the State Council.

The regulation, which applies to chiefs of committees of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and governments at the county level and above, is aimed at implementing efforts by the central authority in building a rule-of-law country.

These Party and governments chiefs have primary responsibility for advancing the rule of law, said the regulation, urging them to adhere to the Party's leadership and the supremacy of the Constitutions and laws, rather than substituting the law with their own words and placing their own power above the law.

It urges Party and government chiefs to advance publicity and education of rule of law, in a bid to foster a more favorable atmosphere for a rule of law society.

The regulation calls for advancing the transparency of government affairs.

The regulation went into effect on November 30, 2016.
