October 1, 2014

The TAR Party Committee held a Standing Committee Meeting to hear progress reports of election work of the ‘Two Committees’ at the village level including the next phase of work to be done by the Research Department.

During the meeting it was pointed out that ever since the work of electing ‘Two Committees’ began, every County and City level Party Committee together with the TAR’s departments concerned have sincerely implemented policies of the Central government with Xi Jinping as the General Secretary and have worked hard to ensure elections are carried out smoothly.

It was also emphasised that this election is a big event in the political lives of the masses and that every department at every level must further implement the spirit of the series of talks delivered by General Secretary Xi Jinping, especially the important strategic thought of “To rule the country one has to rule the border, to rule the borders one has make Tibet stable” and the important directive of “Work hard to realise the continued stability, long term stability and comprehensive stability”, implement Chairman Yu Zhengsheng’s demand of “Rule Tibet as per law, develop Tibet for the long term, win the hearts of the people, strengthen the foundations”, attach high importance to and get a good hold of the election work of the “Two Committees”.

One: one has to understand the great significance of this work. This work is an important measure for organising the party and developing political authority at the grassroot level, thereby consolidating the basis for governance. It holds extreme significance in connecting the party to the masses, promoting enthusiasm and creativity among the masses regarding the goal of achieving a comprehensive well off society by 2020, consolidating the basis of governance of the party at Tibet and promoting rapid and steady development of Tibet’s socio-economy as well as its long term peace and stability.

Two: have a good understanding of special conditions of every region. Tibet consists of the border population and is the major battleground for struggle against separatism. The election of the Village Committees is special and complex. One must be completely aware of Tibet’s reality and do steady work suited to the situation.

Three: strengthen the leadership of the party. The leaders of the Organisation for Village Level Party Committee Election must coordinate the entire project and give better guidance. The party organisation at every level should take up responsibilities and the prominent members of the party committees must take up the position of the ”Most responsible person”. Every organisation should share the responsibilities and participate actively.

Four: election of the organisation should be carried out meticulously. The foremost condition that has to be kept in mind for electing a person is that the he should have an understanding about the right direction. People who have high political ethics, have good support from the masses, are capable of maintaining stability and bringing prosperity should be elected in the village committees. The procedure of election should be strict and should be carried out in a healthy manner. The grassroot level political power must be strengthened. Liberal attitude should not be adopted towards illegal activities during the elections. All such activities should be punished strictly and an upright and clean environment for election is to be created.

Five: the quality of election needs to be ensured. Elections should be dependable. Let the city and town level organisations be the strong forts for promoting development, protecting stability, serving the people and promoting harmony.

Six: stick to the overall plan taking into account all factors. Integrate the work of election of the village committee to the activities of realising education regarding the mass line of the party, maintaining harmony and stability of the society and promoting scientific development. Let Tibet’s scientific development, harmony, stability, improvement of the livelihood of the people, harmony in religion, good ecology, strengthening of the party and stability at the borders maintain the positive situation they are in.
