中国共产党百科∣四个意识 Four Awarenesses
The Sixth Plenum of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) issued two documents on Oct 27, 2016: The Norms Regarding Intra-Party Political Life In New Situation, and Regulations Regarding Intra-Party Supervision. The norms, in 12 parts, stress consolidating ideals and beliefs, keeping to the Party’s basic line, safeguarding the authority of the CPC Central Committee, and maintaining close ties with the people. The regulation, which consists of eight chapters and 47 articles, aims to uphold the CPC leadership, strengthen Party building, promote the comprehensive and strict governance of the Party and maintain the Party’s purity. The core role of Xi Jinping in the leadership was made clear at the Sixth Plenum of the 18th CPC Central Committee. All Party members are also required to have these ‘Four Awarenesses’ (awareness of the need to maintain political integrity, think in big-picture terms, follow the leadership core, and keep in alignment), and closely follow the Central Committee in terms of their thinking, political orientation and actions.
