The annual two sessions are a great event in China's political life, as well as a vivid embodiment of the whole-process people's democracy, according to the author. "As a major summary of the theory and practice of Chinese democracy, the whole-process people's democracy is also China's answer to the chaos of the West and the confusion of Western democracy", the expert adds.
"The profound law of political development across the world proves that democracy is historical and developmental, and no country can claim to be the sole authority of democracy and turn democracy into a tool for wantonly suppressing other countries," the author writes. "Democracy is growing and diverse, and no country in the world can monopolise it or turn it into a pathogen that forcibly exports 'democracy' overseas by labelling and standardising it," Zhang Shuhua adds.
According to the author, "the people-centred democracy in China is not an empty slogan, it is demonstrated in improving people's livelihood, developing people's rights, responding to people's demands, resolving people's concerns, listening to public voices, and gathering people's wisdom".
