China's success lies in the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and sticking to and improving CPC leadership is the country's foundation.
The 18th CPC Central Committee will convene its sixth plenary session from Oct. 24 to 27 to review key issues involving political life within the Party and intra-Party supervision.
The session will include discussion of critical issues in CPC governance and formulating strategic plans for Party building.
Only by upholding the CPC as its core leadership and managing the Party can China withstand challenges, overcome difficulties and achieve the "two centenary goals" and the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation.
Since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012, the CPC leadership has pledged to unswervingly promote comprehensive and strict Party governance, including an "eight-point" guidelines against bureaucracy and extravagance, inspections of central and local governments, and a "mass line" campaign launched to bridge the gaps between officials and the public.
From 2013 to September 2016, disciplinary inspectors have filed more than one million cases and meted out punishment to more than one million people.
All these measures have greatly updated the work style of the Party and governments, and have earned the trust and support of the people, which are crucial to ruling a country and dealing with government affairs.
A recent television program has showcased China's anti-corruption achievements, and the program shows that China should always promote building a clean government and fighting corruption.
The CPC should solve intra-Party issues and increase self-purification and self-improvement abilities of party members to create conditions for strict Party governance.
Strictly running the CPC should start with governing political life within the Party, and the upcoming session will stipulate a regulation on political life within the Party under the new situation.
Basic norms have long been set for CPC members, including seeking truth from facts, combining theory and practice, maintaining close ties with the masses, carrying out criticism and self-criticism, upholding the system of democratic centralism and observing Party discipline.
The CPC now needs to stipulate new criteria during the session to strengthen its advantages.
At the session, the committee will also revise the intra-Party supervision regulation to offer scientific and effective supervision, which, along with the regulation on political life within the Party, will act as a solid support.
Enhancing intra-Party supervision is a requirement for a Marxist political party, and intra-Party supervision will drive supervision in other areas to provide a powerful guarantee for strict Party governance.
