The Ideological Explorations of Chinese Communist Party and Chinese Kuomintang on Peacefully and Democratically Founding a New China

Kan WU


During the old Political Consultative Conference, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Chinese Kuomintang (KMT) both raised the idea of peacefully and democratically founding a new China, that is, under the condition of peace, to draw up the draft constitution, determine the principle of universal suffrage, hold a national people’s conference, and eventually establish a democratic constitutional coalition government; however, on the specific procedures, the two parties had quite different founding ideologies. The old Political Consultative Conference is a judgment to the political wisdom of both sides. Therefore, the CCP delegation has conducted a fierce political contest with the KMT delegation in the outline of peacefully founding the country, government organization plan, National Conference plan, Draft Constitution and other founding ideological aspects, made the Political Consultative Conference enact the agreement in favor of the people, which brought about a profound impact to China’s politics in the future.
