China Democracy Party advocates transforming the CPPCC into Senate, and the People's Congresses into the House of Representatives. House of Representatives and the Senate will serve as the legislative branches of China, and exercise formulation of laws, constitutional supervision, budgeting, major governmental decision-making and appointment of important positions. Unless temporarily confidentiality is required by law, the Senate meetings of all levels should be open and public, and media should be allowed to participate in the entire process of meeting.
China Democracy Party advocates a 3 level government system, including central (federal), provincial and county level. Also there shall be central, provincial and county level House of Representatives and Senate. All levels of Parliament positions shall be directly elected by the voters. To achieve best efficiency at all levels of House of Representatives and Senate, the number of senators and House of Representatives at all levels shall be appropriately restricted according to the law.
All levels of Representatives and Senators shall work full-time in Parliament. Their salaries, as well as their supporting staff’s salaries and office expenses shall be paid by Parliament. To avoid other interest groups’ interference on decision-making, Representatives and Senators shall not be eligible to receive any salary by institutions other than the Parliament during his/her term, including salaries from government agencies.
Based on the commonsense of democratic societies, which include neutrality of Government administration, independence of judiciary and the armed forces belong to the nation, China Democracy Party advocates that no government officials, judicial and law enforcement officers or army servicemen shall be eligible for candidacy of any level of Parliamentary positions, unless the candidate resign from the office, withdraw from the judicial or law enforcement agencies or withdraw from active duty of military.
