Mao Zedong's Development of Socialist Democratic Politics in the Early Period of New China and Contemporary Revelations

Zhiwei Niu


In the new era, China's institutional system has been continuously improved, and a series of systems under which the people are masters of their own house, which is a sine qua non for the development of socialist democratic politics in China, has also been upheld and perfected. In the early days of the founding of New China, Mao Zedong, the founding leader of the People's Republic of China, made great efforts in the exploration of socialist democratic politics. At the beginning of the new China, the development of democratic politics was plagued with problems, the root of which was the inadequacy of the state system. In response to this situation, Mao Zedong made fruitful explorations of the system of people's congresses, multiparty cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the system of regional ethnic autonomy, and the system of grassroots selfgovernance, laying the foundation of China's institutional system. In developing democratic politics with Chinese characteristics in the new era, it is important to learn from the experience and inspiration of Mao's series of explorations, to continuously improve and implement the relevant systems, to grasp the transformation of institutional advantages into governance effectiveness, and to adhere to the fundamental leadership of the Party.
