At the work conference of the CPPCC and the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, General Secretary Xi Jinping will "strengthen ideological and political guidance and broadly build consensus as the central link of the CPPCC's performance work" as a new era to strengthen and improve the work of the CPPCC The overall requirements are clearly stated, which provides strong guidance and fundamental adherence for the CPPCC to better grasp its new position and new mission, and to continue to forge ahead in the new era.
Whether the common ideological and political foundation of the People's Political Consultative Conference of the new era can be solidified and whether the breadth of consensus can be expanded depends on the core role of the party committee leadership at all levels and the role of grass-roots party organizations in fighting fortresses, especially the vanguard model of party members among members. Play the role. The stronger the common ideological and political foundation, the broader the consensus, and the greater the ability to gather for the common goal.
The "special consultation body" has given the CPPCC a clear, comprehensive, and concise carrying method for the nature and work of the CPPCC in the new era, which is conducive to reflecting the role of the CPPCC in China's political system and national governance system, highlighting The unique characteristics and unique advantages of the CPPCC's "I have you, I can and you can't". Only when the advantages and roles of people-to-people cooperation as a specialized consultation institution are truly brought into play, the consultation platform is enriched, the consultation mechanism is improved, the consultation culture is cultivated, and the work of converging consensus can be truly implemented and effective.
The essence of negotiation lies in democracy. The key is to consolidate the meaning of consensus, to cultivate and cultivate a culture of negotiation. Chairman Wang Yang profoundly pointed out: "During consultations, all parties, groups, and people from all walks of life and all walks of life accepted the party's opinions as a consensus; the Communist Party of China adopted and concentrated everyone's opinions and suggestions, which was reflected in the national policy and consensus. Through effective reasoning and persuasion, increasing trust and dissolving doubts, and unlocking the 'ideological rhetoric' of the masses in the community, it is a consensus; using different methods to rationalize emotions, resolve contradictions, and overcome extremes in different occasions is also a consensus. " In the final analysis, how to change the form of negotiation is to build consensus.
Since ancient times, the Chinese nation has had an excellent political culture that is compatible and seeks common ground while shelving differences. The Communist Party of China has always maintained the fine tradition of "unity-criticism-unity". To build consensus, we should also actively learn from the good experience, and strive to cultivate and foster a negotiation culture of “what is good to discuss, and everyone ’s affairs to be discussed by everyone”, to promote the full expression and in-depth exchange of different ideas and opinions, and to achieve mutual respect and equality. Negotiate without imposing, follow rules, orderly negotiation without speaking each other, be considerate and tolerant, negotiate sincerely without being paranoid, and form a good negotiation atmosphere that speaks freely, expresses opinions, and is rational and legal. On the basis of solid common ideology and politics, and on the premise of respect for diversity, forgiveness and tolerance, relying on extensive, in-depth, multi-layered consultations to seek common ground while shelving differences, and to seek common ground for differences, we can truly mobilize all positive factors, unite all forces that can be united, and find the greatest common divisor Only by drawing the largest concentric circles can the consensus that is united be stronger, broader and more durable.
