The Party's absolute leadership over the army is the foundation of building an army and the soul of a strong army

——A series of talks on "Understanding Xi Jinping's thoughts on strengthening the military and doing a good job in strengthening the military in the new era" ④

  Adhering to the party's command of the gun and building its own people's army is an unbreakable truth that the party has achieved in the struggle of blood and fire.

  Invincibility is due to the "root", and determination is due to the "soul".

The principle and system of the Party's absolute leadership over the army is like a red line running through the glorious course of the people's army from scratch, from small to large, from weak to strong, establishing the foundation of building an army and forging the soul of a strong army.

Our army was not overwhelmed by hardships, hardships and powerful enemies during the war years, it was not overwhelmed by bourgeois sugar-coated cannonballs after seizing power, it was not overwhelmed by people with ulterior motives in political struggle, and it was not overwhelmed by various wrong thoughts after the reform and opening up. Always firmly believe that "as long as you follow the party, you will definitely win", and always insist that "the sickle and the hammer point to the course, and the military flag floats with the party flag", and is unswerving and indomitable.

History has fully proved that ensuring the absolute leadership of the Party over the army is related to the nature and purpose of our army, the future and destiny of socialism, and the long-term stability of the party and the country.

  Xi Jinping's thought on strengthening the military clearly states that the party's absolute leadership over the army is the foundation of the people's army and the soul of a strong army. A series of fundamental principles and systems of the party's leadership of the army must be fully implemented to ensure the absolute loyalty, purity and reliability of the army.

The fundamental principle and system of the Party's absolute leadership over the army, originated in the Nanchang Uprising, based on the adaptation of the Three Bays, and finalized in the Gutian Conference, is the political characteristic and fundamental advantage of the people's army that is completely different from all the old armies.

After long-term development, the fundamental principles and systems of the Party's absolute leadership over the military have been continuously enriched, developed and improved, and the Central Military Commission has implemented the chairman responsibility system, the party committee system, the political committee system, and the political organ system, and the unified collective leadership of the party committee has been implemented. Under the system of division of labor and responsibility for the head of the army, the branch is built on the top of the company, which provides a rock-solid institutional guarantee for adhering to the absolute leadership of the party over the army.

  Small wisdom rules things, big wisdom rules systems.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, President Xi has held on to the key point of insisting on the absolute leadership of the Party over the military, and has carried out a series of institutional designs and arrangements.

The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China will uphold the party's absolute leadership over the people's army as the basic strategy for upholding and developing socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era.

The Fourth Plenary of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China took "adhering to the party's command of the gun" as one of the 13 significant advantages of my country's national system and national governance system, and raised the "absolute leadership of the party over the people's army" to a fundamental system of socialism with Chinese characteristics. .

The new major deployments and the new system norms reflect that our party has become more mature in theory and more confident in the system on major issues related to the party's movement and military spirit. It is the most powerful adherence to our fundamental principles of building and governing the army , is the most powerful safeguard for the socialist political system and military system with Chinese characteristics.

  "Soldiers and powers are one, and military orders are unified." Our party's system is that the party leader serves as the chairman of the Central Military Commission, responsible for the overall work of the Central Military Commission, leading and commanding the national armed forces, and deciding all major issues of national defense and army building.

This is a major achievement of the long-term development of the military leadership system of the Party and the state. It is a major system stipulated in the Constitution and the Party Constitution. It is at the highest level and in the leading position in the whole set of systems under which the Party leads the military.

President Xi emphasized that the system stipulated in the constitution and the system that the military has inherited for a long time must be real.

Only by taking the implementation of the responsibility of the Chairman of the Military Commission as a serious and important political responsibility, to abide by it as the highest political requirement, to maintain the highest political discipline, and to ensure that the supreme leadership and command of the military are firmly in the hands of the Party Central Committee, the Central Military Commission and Chairman Xi, Talent is "like the body making the arm, like the arm making the fingers, changing all the time, if there is no difficulty, the world will be unified."

  The Party's absolute leadership over the army is based on the word "absolute". A slight deviation or slight swing may bring a fatal threat to the cause of the Party and the army.

The word "absolute" is a clear attitude to abide by the fundamental principles of building the army, emphasizing the uniqueness, thoroughness and unconditional nature of the party's leadership.

On the new journey of strengthening the army and rejuvenating the army, no matter how the form of war evolves, how the environment for military construction changes, and how the organizational form of the military is adjusted, all organizations, all personnel, all departments, and all work must be placed under the absolute leadership of the party, and will not be resolute. Move, always.

  "On the way forward, the people's army must firmly adhere to the party's absolute leadership over the army, and regard this as the soul of the people's army that can never be changed, and the lifeblood that can never be lost." Looking back, the history of our army is The history of continuous development and growth under the absolute leadership of the party; looking forward to the future, resolutely obeying the party's command, being absolutely loyal and reliable, the people's army will have faith, direction, and strength, obey orders, and work hard, towards the 100th anniversary of the founding of the army. The goal of struggle is to strut, create a new situation of strengthening the army, and write a new glory for the rejuvenation of the army.
