A recent politburo meeting has set the agenda for the upcoming 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (NCCPC), including plans to amend the constitution of the Party, Caixin reported.

Major theoretical perspectives and strategic thinking developed during the 19th Party Congress will be written into the constitution, with careful consideration to the new tasks the Party faces.

The meeting discussed three reports, including amendments to the Party constitution, a work report from the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and a report on how the politburo has implemented the “Eight Rules” put forward by President Xi Jinping in 2012.

The three reports will be further discussed on the seventh plenary session of the 18th politburo, scheduled to kick off on October 11, one week before the 19th National Congress of the Party, which will elect the new lineup of the country’s most senior leaders in the new Politburo Standing Committee.
