In June 2022, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe endorsed a revised charter, drafted in cooperation with the European Parliament’s Anti-Racism and Diversity Intergroup (ARDI), the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance and the European Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission). The new charter has a wider scope reflected in the title, “Charter of European political parties for a non-racist and inclusive society” – the Anti-Racism Charter. The charter calls on political parties to use their self-regulatory power to freely engage with it and commit to abiding by its principles.

It gives me great pleasure to join you, leaders of more than 500 political parties, political and other organisations from over 160 countries as well as the ten thousand and more representatives of political parties and various circles, at this cloud event to discuss the important question of “working for the people’s wellbeing and the responsibility of political parties”, just as the Communist Party of China (CPC) reaches its one hundredth anniversary. Over the past weeks, more than 600 political parties, political and other organisations from over 170 countries have sent 1500-plus congratulatory messages and letters on the CPC’s centenary conveying their goodwill and best wishes. I wish to take this opportunity to express to all of you, on behalf of the Communist Party of China, our heartfelt thanks!

Political parties shall contribute to the free formation and plural expression of the popular will and to the organisation of political power, with respect for the principles of national independence, the unity of the state and political democracy.
