(Adopted at the Sixth Plenary Session of the 18th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on October 27, 2016)
The key to running China well is the party. The key is that the party must manage the party and strictly manage the party. The party must manage the party from the political life within the party, and the strict management of the party must be strictly from the political life within the party.
It is the fine tradition and political advantage of our party to carry out serious political life within the party. In the long-term practice, our party insists on carrying out the serious inner political life of the party as an important task of party building, and has formed a pragmatic, theoretical and practical connection, close contact with the masses, criticism and self-criticism, democratic centralism, and strict party. Discipline and other basic norms of political life within the party, accumulating rich experience in consolidating the party's unity and concentration, maintaining the party's advanced nature and purity, and enhancing the party's vitality, in order to ensure the completion of the party in various historical periods. The central task played an important role.
In 1980, the Fifth Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee of the Party profoundly summed up the historical experience, especially the lessons of the "Cultural Revolution", and formulated the "Several Guidelines on Political Life within the Party" to bring order out of chaos, restore and improve the political life within the party. The promotion of party building has played an important role, and its main principles and regulations still apply today, and we must continue to adhere to it.
Under the new situation, the political life situation within the party is generally good. At the same time, since a period of time, some prominent problems have emerged in the political life of the party, mainly: in some party members, cadres, including senior cadres, the ideals and beliefs are not firm, they are not loyal to the party, the discipline is slack, they are separated from the masses, they are arbitrary, and they are fraudulent. I am lazy, individualism, decentralism, liberalism, good manism, sectarianism, mountainism, and money worship. The formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism, and extravagant styles are prominent, and the crony, running officials The phenomenon of buying and selling officials and selling bribes has been repeatedly banned, and abuses of power, corruption, bribery, corruption, and lawlessness have spread. In particular, a very small number of senior cadres have political ambitions, ambitions, and slogans such as yin and yin, party smuggling, group gangs, gangs, and power. These problems have seriously eroded the party's ideological and moral foundation, seriously undermined the party's unity and centralization, seriously damaged the party's political ecology and the party's image, and seriously affected the party and the people's cause. This requires us to continue to strengthen party building in the spirit of reform and innovation, strengthen and standardize the political life within the party, and comprehensively improve the scientific level of party building.
Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core has taken the lead in setting an example, firmly promoting the comprehensive and strict administration of the party, insisting on the close integration of ideological party building and institutional governance, concentrating on the party style, severely punishing corruption, and purifying the party. The political ecology, the political life in the party has shown a new atmosphere, won the hearts of the party and the people, and provided an important guarantee for the new situation of the party and the state.
Historical experience shows that as a Marxist political party, our party must clearly articulate politics and seriously carry out political life within the party. In order to better carry out the great struggle with many new historical characteristics, promote the new great project of party building, advance the great cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and withstand the "four major tests" and overcome the "four dangers", it is necessary to formulate a The norms of political life within the party under the new situation.

Sexually, focus on strengthening the party's self-purification, self-improvement, self-innovation, self-improvement ability, focus on improving the party's leadership and governance, enhance the ability to resist corruption and resist risks, and strive to safeguard the party's central authority and ensure the unity and unity of the party.
