General Secretary Xi Jinping once gave important instructions on strengthening the construction of the laws and regulations within the Party: "Strengthening the construction of the laws and regulations within the Party is a long-term and fundamental policy for the strict administration of the Party in an all-round way. In order to fulfill the great historical mission of reigning and rejuvenating the country, win the great victory of struggle with many new historical characteristics, and realize the long-term peace and stability of the Party and the country, our Party must adhere to the rule of law and the rule of the party, promote the overall planning of the Party in accordance with the rules and regulations, and build an integrated whole.
What is Inner Party rule? As the name implies, it is the general name of the inner-party rules and regulations formulated by the Party's central organization, the Central Discipline Inspection Commission, the central departments and the Party committees of provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government to regulate the work, activities and conduct of Party organizations. Compared with the national laws, the inner-party laws and regulations lay more emphasis on "within the party", which is a higher requirement for Party organizations and Party members, focusing on adjusting inner-party relations and regulating inner-party life; compared with other systems, rules, traditions and working practices within the party, the inner-party laws and regulations lay more emphasis on "laws and regulations", which is more important for Party organizations and Party members. The more stringent requirements put forward by the staff focus on defining the basic principles and norms of intra party relations and intra party life. Undoubtedly, the concept of intra-Party laws and regulations is deeply rooted in the hearts and minds of the people with the new era, and it is also in the new era that the party has ushered in vigor and vitality.
Ruling the party according to regulations has profound theoretical origin and practice tradition. History and practice have proved that all true Marxist-Leninist political parties must have strict organizational structure and iron discipline and rules. When Marx and Engels, the revolutionary mentors, founded the first proletarian party organization, they drafted the party's constitution and formulated the party's system and discipline. Since its inception, ruling the party in accordance with regulations has been inscribed on the "early heart" of the Communist Party of China. The "Program of the Communist Party of China" adopted by the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China clearly stipulates the principles of organizational discipline and organization. Mao Zedong first put forward the concept of "Party rules" at the Sixth Plenary Session of the Sixth Central Committee in 1938: "In order to put the relations within the Party on the right track,... A more detailed inner party rule should be drawn up to unify the actions of leading organs at all levels. After the reform and opening up, Deng Xiaoping stressed: "the state must have the national law, and the party has the party rule and the party law. The party constitution is the most fundamental rule of the party. Without party rules, it is difficult to guarantee national law. Looking back on history, the Communist Party of China has always attached great importance to governing the Party according to rules and regulations, formulated laws and regulations within the Party for key and difficult problems in various historical periods, produced rich practice, and formed a profound accumulation and fine tradition of governing the Party by rules and regulations.
Ruling the party in accordance with regulations is a major breakthrough in the overall and strict administration of the party in the new era. The Party Central Committee, with Comrade Xi Jinping as its core, has a lofty vision, a flag-raising orientation, an extraordinary political courage and a superb political wisdom, inherits the glorious tradition of combining ideological Party building with institutional Party management, applies the thinking of rule of law and the way of rule of law, attaches great importance to governing the Party in accordance with the laws and regulations within the Party, and rules and regulations in accordance with the system. The party mentioned unprecedented heights and achieved unprecedented results. At the Fourth Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee of the CPC, General Secretary Xi Jinping put forward for the first time that "the Party should be in charge of the Party through the use of intra-Party laws and regulations, from strict governance to practical implementation", "intra-party laws and regulations are not only an important basis for governing the Party, but also a strong guarantee for building a socialist country ruled by law". He emphasized when listening to the report of the Sixth Round Inspection of the Eighteenth "Adhere to the rule of law, rule the party in accordance with regulations," pointed out at the Fifth Plenary Session of the eighteenth Central Committee of the Party, "all-round strict governance of the party, rule the party in accordance with regulations," stressed in the report of the nineteenth National Congress of the Party, "accelerate the formation of a party's leadership and Party building covering all aspects of the system of laws and regulations within the party," for the new era of comprehensive strict governance of the party, according to the rules and regulations of the Party pointed out Direction is provided.
Ruling the party according to regulations is a practical summary of managing the party in the new era. With the solid advancement of the reform of the Party's construction system, the inner-party laws and regulations system, which is based on the Party Constitution and supported by a number of supporting inner-party laws and regulations, has been basically established. The inner-party laws and regulations pattern, which links up before and after, links up left and right, forms a complete set up from top to bottom, and integrates systematically, has initially taken shape. By the end of 2017, there were 3,843 intra-party laws and regulations, including 195 central intra-party laws and regulations, 236 central ministries and commissions intra-party laws and regulations, and 3,412 local intra-party laws and regulations. The Second Five-Year Plan for the Formulation of Regulations within the Party of the Central Committee (2018-2022) also provides top-level design and overall planning for the construction of regulations and systems within the Party in the next five years. At the same time, the majority of cadres and the masses are deeply gratified that the "see the true rules" of the party governed by the rules and regulations, the iron rules and regulations really made a force, banned a real prestige, the implementation of the system greatly improved, the seriousness and authority of the system can be safeguarded, the rules must be followed, the rules must be strictly enforced, the atmosphere of the violation of the rules and regulations must be investigated is becoming stronger, and the party governed by the "true obedience of the rules and regulations". "Loose and soft" moved towards "tight and hard".
Looking forward to the future, we must not relax the rule of the party and rule the party for a moment. How to solve the problem of the system of promoting the strict and comprehensive administration of the Party better, and how to make the system of managing the Party more scientific, more rigorous and more effective? This is a major theoretical and practical issue facing the new chapter of ruling the Party according to rules in the new era. We must adhere to the guidance of Xi Jinping's socialist thought with Chinese characteristics in the new era, make in-depth study, forward-looking planning, make great efforts, unswervingly adhere to and improve the Party in accordance with rules, and unswervingly build the Party stronger and stronger.
In the new era, we must always maintain the political strength of ruling the party according to the rule. If the Party wants to govern the Party and administer it strictly, it must be regulated by a strong system and guaranteed by effective implementation. It must not let the restrictions of the system loosen and become "rubber bands" instead of hard restrictions. Only with iron determination, iron will, unswervingly and persistently promote the system to govern the party and govern the party according to rules, can iron discipline and iron rules truly take root, become a powerful tool for the party and the country to govern the fundamental and long-term. We must elevate the rule-based party management to the political and strategic level, and make it an important link to promote the maturity and stereotyping of our party's system in all aspects, and a key measure to enhance the ruling ability and improve the level of Party management. Especially in the face of international and domestic challenges and changes in economic and social conditions, we should consciously and soberly realize that it is of special strategic significance to firmly and deeply promote the rule-by-rule Party and constantly lead it from strict to in-depth administration.
In the new era, we must speed up the construction of Inner Party laws and regulations system. Although the "four beams and eight pillars" of the system of laws and regulations within the Party have been set up, the construction of the system of laws and regulations within the Party still has a long way to go with a view to the goal of "two hundred years". There are still many tasks to be tackled and a lot of work to be done for a long time. We must take the overall situation into consideration, serve the overall situation, focus on the long-term, based on the fundamental, seize the historical opportunity of a new era of comprehensive strict governance of the Party, take advantage of the situation, gather all aspects of wisdom and strength, and strive to build the Party's organizational laws and regulations, the Party's leadership laws and regulations, the Party's own construction laws and regulations, and the Party's supervision and protection. The laws and regulations and other sectors should speed up the formation of a scientific content, rigorous procedures, complete and effective system of laws and regulations within the Party, so that it can cover all aspects of the Party's leadership and Party building and play a comprehensive role in the organic unity of the whole.
In the new era, we must strictly enforce the system and govern the party according to the rule. In real life, organizations do not implement laws and regulations, Party members and cadres do not abide by laws and regulations still occur from time to time, some have not yet formed the habit of doing things according to laws and regulations, some have adopted a pragmatist attitude to "selective enforcement", some even do whatever they want, arbitrarily, and put individuals above the laws and regulations. We must firmly carry out the system, adhere to the principle that all people are equal before the system and that there are no exceptions to the system. With the solid strength of one eye, the firm strength of nails and the indomitable tenacity of grasping the green hills, we must take real steps in strictly implementing the system and effectively governing the Party in accordance with the rules and regulations, make practical measures, seek practical results, and leave no "secret door" or "secret door". No skylight, with the strong momentum and positive conduction of governing the Party in accordance with regulations, forms a good atmosphere of respecting, observing and defending the system, resolutely prevents the "window-breaking effect" and effectively avoids the "slipping and idling" of laws and regulations which are nothing and govern the Party in accordance with regulations.
