Clearly, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is a specific political entity. On Sunday, October 16, in Beijing, during the 20th Commencement, Xi Jinping provided further evidence of this.e Party Congress. In an hour and fifty minute speech, the Secretary-General did not mention the war in Ukraine, the economic recession in his country, peak youth unemployment or the situation in Xinjiang. China has been accused of mass harassment of the Uyghur minority, or even a constitutional change he made in 2018 to stay in power as long as he wanted.

This omnipotence of the CCP is expected to increase further in the next five years.
“On the Right Side of History”
Now it has become a country “Moderately Prosperous”, The party has to commit itself henceforth “Second Century Purpose” [du PCC] : Create China a “The best modern country in all areas” In 2035 and a powerful nation “World’s First” In 2049.
