How Does China's Government Work?

China's government is really interesting. Their government, like the US government, is broken down into levels: National > Provincial > District > City/Town/Village. At the lowest level, officials are elected democratically to govern and represent the village or city. They then get "promoted' up the levels based on their performance at the lower levels till they get appointed to the national level of government by the chairman. It's nice because everyone enters the government through democratic election, but no one can jump straight to the national level without first showing competence at the lower levels, so everyone running the country at the national level all understand from experience how the government operates at every level and, as a result, they are good at delegating power out to the lower levels. For a country of over 1.2 billion people, it's definitely an efficient form of government.
An important thing to add is that the president of China isn't always the man in charge. The real power in communist China resides in the standing committee of the politburo (or the leadership of the communist party). All other parts of the Chinese government are merely there to approve off what the politburo decides, to create legitimacy. The president only has power if he is a member of the politburo, like Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping, without power in the politburo they are extremely weak. To become a member of the politburo someone must become a member of the communist party and rise through the ranks using guanxi (good personal relations with higher leadership).
Oh this video is dead wrong. China is just an authoritarian version of global centrist trend, including Democratic and Republican establishment and essentially most traditional political parties. China is nothing like North Korea, because the Chinese government is strictly capitalist, while the North Korean bureaucrats are not allowed to push for pro-market reforms(which benefit themselves primarily) because that threatens Kim's power. So Chinese government is in collusion with global capitalists and capitalist nations like the US, while North Korea is doing everything to prevent global capitalism from toppling it... this video tbh looks like its made by some 10 year old kid.
Not communist. China is closer to NATIONAL SOCLIALISM than Germany was.
Wrong: China IS NOT a "single political party" state. No, it isn't. There are nine political parties in China. You can vote for all of them there. Look for this in Wikipedia. United Front (People's Republic of China)
I go here so easy . If I want ,I can get through the wall of china. When I go out ,I see so many harm to china . Now I know the wall of Internet is right.
Chinese govt works like a huge company...and their leaders are selected/promoted based on their performance.
You should do a video on what's wrong with the education system of the western world (mainly U.S.A. and Europe) why students have to work so hard for information that's barely usefull.
I think most western people know little about China. In China, the most important thing is to develop economy. A stable social environment is the basis of economic growth. The single party is the most effective way to realize rapid economic growth and social stability. In such a complex world, the concept of democracy is a little bit outmoded. A better concept would be good govermancy. In western coutries, people used to think all the things different from their model are wrong. It seems that the western countries should change their minds.
Censorship of media is a good thing, because media always shows you the bad things, and creates disturbance and unrest in society. And for your kind information I am from India and I don't like the Indian system.


That's right, china government works like a huge company, the leaders selected/promoted have very professional experience in different field, that’s why china becomes powerful quickly in a short time, but in US democracy system, US people may elect stupid leaders only depend on what they said.

Chinese government is run by engineers, while US is run by lawyers. Chinese leaders are handpicked based on their previous performance (GDP mostly) while US leaders are elected based on their speech ability. Which one will produce better results in the long run? I think it's quite obvious.
China has a long history. Many dynasties in ancient China collapsed because of Party struggle. A party must represent the interests of some people. Dynasty needs are the interests of the whole society. In fact, western political parties legalized party and government and consumed social forces. China often said that governing the world is to safeguard the interests of all people, the Communist Party. Actually speaking, the Party Constitution represents the vanguard of the working class, the most advanced productive forces and the interests of the vast majority of the Chinese people. That is to say, in governing the world, China today is actually a combination of Marx and Chinese culture. The advantage of China's system is that it can reform itself. If China can gradually solve the problem of political struggle at the top level, it will be a long time. Ancient Chinese dynasties generally exceed 300 years, the history of the founding of the United States is only 200 years, China's 5000 years, and China's wisdom has a long history.
I am an indian. And democracy sucks here. To take any decision , it takes 50 years here. You can take decision only when there is a majority party. Decision making process is always hindered by opposition for the sake of appeasement of their vote banks. Communist china has lifted 300 millions people out of poverty. India has pushed 100 millions into poverty. Only idiots become leaders in democracy. An average person has idea about country economy, foreign policy, etc. They votes on the basis of emotions and appeasement. Plato has said more about this.
