依法治国 Govern according to law
Because the Chinese CP suppresses anti-party activists and operates a parallel - largely secret - system of law within the Party the announcement that the theme of the Central Committee meeting would be rule of law was met with cynicism. But if one takes them on their own terms the PRC is "perfecting" its legal system And there are statements in the official communique that "intra-party" rules will also be improved. The limits are plain. They plan to:
construct a line of Socialist rule of law work teams who are loyal to the Party, loyal to the country, loyal to the people, and loyal to the law.
