Political Party System in China
The Communist Party of China (CPC) is the only legal political party of any consequence in the country. Some small independent political parties exist to lend credence to a claim of democracy for the country (Douglas, 2001). Effectively, China has a one-party political system. Therefore, there is no competition among political parties in the People’s Republic of China.
