General Secretary Xi Jinping clearly pointed out at the CPPCC working meeting that people ’s political cooperation is an organization of multi-party cooperation and political consultation and an important form of realization of people ’s democracy. An important part of the national governance system is an institutional arrangement with Chinese characteristics. The People's Political Consultative Conference should position the quasi-united front, highlight the advantages of the united front, innovate institutional mechanisms, and play a greater role in the work pattern of the united front in the new era.
Accurately grasp the unique role of the CPPCC in the work pattern of the United Front in the new era.
The People's Political Consultative Conference has a unique role in the pattern of the United Front work, and has become the most important United Front platform of the Communist Party of China.
This unique status is formed by history. The People's Political Consultative Conference was created on the eve of the victory of the New Democratic Revolution, as a political institution in which the Communist Party of China negotiated with non-party parties in various fields to establish the country. After the establishment of the People's Congress system in 1954, people's political cooperation continued to exist and play a role in organizing the United Front. The CPPCC is a great creation on the political system led by the Chinese Communist Party under the leadership of democratic parties, non-partisans, people's groups and people of all ethnic groups. Both history and reality have fully shown that without the united front, there can be no CPPCC; the more vigorous the CPPCC's cause, the more conducive it is to consolidating and strengthening the broadest patriotic united front.
This unique status is determined by the nature of the CPPCC. The nature of people's political cooperation as a united front organization was first clarified. No matter how many twists and turns, the basic nature of the people ’s political cooperation as a united front organization form has not changed. The united front attribute is the most basic attribute of the CPPCC, and the united front function is the most basic function of the CPPCC.
This unique status fully demonstrates the unique advantages of the CPPCC organization. The huge inclusiveness, the strong representativeness of the CPPCC, the wide solidarity, and the wide coverage are unmatched by other political organizations. Partisan cooperation. Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the CPPCC actively promotes unity and cooperation among various parties and has become an important platform for democratic parties to participate in politics. Democratic consultation, people-to-government cooperation is a specialized consultation agency, and consultation democracy runs through the entire process of performing duties. Negotiation is the basic method, the purpose is to form consensus and promote solidarity, which is in line with the united front work.
This unique status is given by the new era and new mission. At present, the task of reform, development, and stability is unprecedented, and the challenges of contradictory risks are unprecedented. The diversity of ideological and cultural exchanges is unprecedented. The complexity of the united front structure is also unprecedented. It is urgent to further develop the important role of the CPPCC in consolidating consensus and consolidating people ’s hearts. The CPPCC is responsible for carrying out the united front work and unites more people around the party.
Fully demonstrate the new actions of the CPPCC in the work pattern of the United Front in the new era.
Compared with the requirements of the new era and new position and the expectations of people from all walks of life, the CPPCC's united front function still has much room for improvement. It is necessary to strengthen the responsibilities of the CPPCC to carry out the united front work, and reflect the role of the united front in all aspects of the CPPCC work.
Strengthen the system support and build a united front work system. To give full play to the united front function of the CPPCC, we must strengthen the guarantee of the united front mechanism of the CPPCC. Further clarify the important position of the CPPCC in the pattern of the United Front. Adhere to and improve the party's leadership, strengthen the top-level design of the system, and clarify the status of people-government cooperation as the most important united front platform. Further promote institutional innovations such as the establishment of the CPPCC sector. Strengthen the research on the establishment of the CPPCC sector, and issue normative documents that fully reflect the representativeness, inclusiveness and diversity of the sector. In accordance with the request of General Secretary Xi Jinping to "improve the mechanism for the generation of members," the party committee should be strengthened to focus on unified leadership and form a joint effort. Further improve the communication and coordination mechanism of the United Front Organization. Improve the contact system between the CPPCC Special Committee and the party and government departments, strengthen the cooperation between the CPPCC Special Committee and the departments of ethnic religion, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and form a "one game of chess" work pattern.
Strengthen political leadership and advance the construction of a political community. The CPPCC is a political community, and it is necessary to strengthen its determination to adhere to the political bottom line. Bring into play the leading role of the party group in the work of the CPPCC. Bring into play the important role of the party committee of the CPPCC in the direction, control of the overall situation, and implementation, strengthen the research and deployment of the CPPCC's united front work, and constantly improve the CPPCC's organizational system to achieve full coverage of the party's organization to party members and party work . Implement the overall linkage and co-frequency resonance mechanism of the work of the CPPCC and party work. Strengthen the CPPCC party group's regular contacts with various democratic parties and non-partisans, implement the system of CPPCC party members' division of labor and contact with the democratic parties, and directly listen to opinions through on-site visits and other forms to timely understand the internal thinking of the united front. Improve the coordination mechanism of the CPPCC and the democratic parties in fulfilling their duties, and create conditions and make institutional arrangements for democratic parties and non-partisans to play a better role in the CPPCC. Strengthen ideological and political leadership and consolidate the common ideological and political foundation for unity and struggle. It is necessary to focus on the learning points, guide all parties and groups participating in the CPPCC and people from all ethnic groups and all walks of life to thoroughly study the party's innovative theory, and consolidate and deepen the achievements of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important thinking on strengthening and improving the work of the CPPCC. Innovate learning methods, combine learning and education with inspections and activities, and promote members to witness new developments and experience new achievements. We must give play to the united front role of different types of members. The primary responsibility of party members is to do united front work and lead people from all ethnic groups and all walks of life to unite with the party. Democratic party members must effectively conduct the CPC's political leadership and social appeal to the relevant sectors of the masses, and reflect their political aspirations and interests. Members of the people's organizations should play a good role as a bridge and strengthen political guidance to new social forces. All members must go deep into the masses and maximize the role of unity and guidance.
Promote organizational cohesion, and unite the front in the performance of the CPPCC. The main body of the CPPCC's united front function is members of the CPPCC on behalf of democratic parties, non-partisans, people's organizations, ethnic minorities, and patriotic people from all walks of life. It is necessary to put the work of solidarity and cohesion in a more prominent position. Build a large platform for democratic consultation and cooperation. Promote broad solidarity, promote multi-party cooperation, and practice people's democracy in consultations. Negotiations must not only focus on "national policy" negotiation, but also "ideological" communication, and also coordinate the "interests" of all parties to find the largest common divisor. It is necessary to carefully design the content of the event, improve the organization of the conference, invite party and government leaders to face-to-face consultation with CPPCC members, and increase the attractiveness of CPPCC activities. Coordinating arrangements for members of various sectors to participate in the CPPCC's performance activities, and continuously increasing the breadth and depth of members' participation. Actively carry out friendship and friendship activities full of the characteristics of the CPPCC. It is necessary to actively explore effective methods of unity and friendship work in the new situation, strengthen members 'liaison service work, carry out more characteristic friendship activities such as talks, visits and visits, and increase members' sense of belonging to the CPPCC organization. Do a good job of united front work for important non-party personalities. The leaders of the CPPCC should take the initiative to visit the important non-Party personalities such as the retired Democratic Party Chairman and the Democratic Party, and listen to their opinions and suggestions. For members of Hong Kong and Macao, members of the foreign friendly community and specially invited members, a normal communication and liaison mechanism must be established to ensure that there are no obstacles to communication, no distance to communication, and no restrictions on communication. For members of the ethnic and religious circles, we must listen patiently and actively reflect their reasonable concerns, and better play their irreplaceable role in the people they associate with.
Expand the influence of the United Front and help draw the largest concentric circles. The CPPCC must not only strengthen unity within the CPPCC, but also face wide-ranging social contacts and mobilize the masses from all walks of life to achieve a greater united front. Extend to the grassroots. In accordance with the requirements of openness, integration, and sharing, we must actively promote the construction of consultation rooms in the CPPCC for "somethings are good to discuss" in the townships (streets), as well as in parks, villages (communities), and enterprises with conditions. Promote the sinking of members, extend the reach of consultations, and send consultations involving the immediate interests of the masses to rural areas, enterprises, and communities, so that members of the CPPCC and grass-roots people can negotiate face-to-face and communicate heart-to-heart. In accordance with the overall requirements of "Leadership of the Party Committee, government support, CPPCC stage, participation of all parties, and service to the masses", the consultation room has been established as a "good helper for the party committee and government, a bridge between the people and the people, and a new platform for members to perform their duties." Advantages translate into the effectiveness of participating in grassroots governance in the national governance system. Expand to successful people abroad. Through social organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce in other places, strengthen the connection with the wise men in the foreign country, and use the nostalgia and homesickness as a link to attract and unite all parties. Closely communicate with overseas chambers of commerce and hometown associations, hire overseas successful people as special invited members of the Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and Overseas Chinese Committee, invite them to participate in the CPPCC plenary meetings and related activities, and bring together all Chinese children's hearts and thoughts, and make efforts Majestic strength. Reach to the new class. Strengthen ties with representatives of new media and non-public economy, provide a platform for orderly political participation for representatives of new economic organizations and new social organizations, organize them to learn new theories, participate in CPPCC deliberations, and expand solidarity. Sticking to the "center of the political bottom line", it stretches the "radius of tolerance".
