In Search of Direction After Two Decades of Local Democratic Experiments in China

Dong Lisheng

Abstract

Assessment of the implications of experiments with village committee elections since 1987 has changed. In 2006, direct town elections were categorically forbidden, but in 2008 public nomination and public selection were resumed in Guiyang City for district and deputy municipal leaders. The paper explores the rationale behind the decisions and concludes that a strategic choice is pending within the central leadership.
