In the spirit of criticism and self-criticism, the Central Committee also highlighted the weaknesses and drawbacks in the implementation of the Party’s guidelines and drew useful lessons for future improvements.
The Central Committee unanimously approved a list of candidates for the Central Committee, the Politburo, the Secretariat and the Central Inspection Commission of the 12th Party Congress. Current Central Committee members also announced their nominations for the four key posts, including Party general secretary, State president, prime minister and National Assembly chairman.
