Hu urges CPPCC to retain the spirit

PRESIDENT Hu Jintao has urged the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference to "continue carrying out its functions of political consultation, democratic supervision, and participation and raising proposals in governance, in a practical and effective way."
The CPPCC should make new contributions to boosting the reform, opening-up and socialist modernization drive and the great cause of a peaceful reunification of the nation, he said.
It should also safeguard world peace, said Hu, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, at a gathering in Beijing yesterday to mark the 60th founding anniversary of the political advisory body.
In his key-note speech, Hu described the CPPCC as a patriotic united front of the Chinese people, a major institution of multiparty cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the CPC and a main form to display socialist democracy.
The CPPCC has had an uncommon experience and great achievements in the past 60 years, Hu said.
In September 1949, the first plenary conference of the CPPCC was held in Beijing, and it adopted the common guidelines of the CPPCC, which served as a temporary Constitution for the People's Republic, and elected the CPPCC National Committee and the Central People's Government of the People's Republic of China.
Hu emphasized that over the past 60 years, the three-generation CPC leaderships, with Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin as the core, have always given top priority and active support to the work of the CPPCC.
