Chongqing– Last time, we talked about the deputy to the National People’s Congress or 全国人大代表. Today, we will learn the Chinese term “全国政协委员,” which means a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
The CPPCC is an important organ for multi-party cooperation and political consultation under the leadership of the Communist Party of China. It is an important means of promoting socialist democracy.
With about 2,200 members, the CPPCC is strictly an advisory body that can be loosely compared with the UK House of Lords. The composition of the CPPCC is more broadly representative of Chinese society and includes retired party elders, academics, business people, and even luminaries of the sports and entertainment industry.
