Deepened Reforms Test China's New Leaders

Today, the CCP has gradually standardized into a four-level leadership system which includes the National Congress, the Central Committee, the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, and the Politburo Standing Committee.

These organizations were created partly to cope with the rapid development of the CCP - by the end of 2011, China's Communist Party had 82.60 million members. At the same time, the rise of these institutions also reflects the development path of Chinese politics -- orderly power transfers and a gradual shift towards democracy and transparency are inevitable demands of an evolving political civilization.

But even more important than the power transition is how the new generation of leaders will wield their power. The key for political, economic, and social reforms lies in the formation of clear power boundaries and the establishment of checks and balances.
