Rise of China as a major political, economic and security player at global landscape keeps on inviting the interest of international community in governance system of China. The state once accused of having extractive political and economic institutions made a place in international arena due to unique governance system. governance system is entrenched in guidelines set under the overarching ideology: ‘Socialism with Chinese Characteristics’. The ideology entails leading and guiding role of Communist Party in running the government with the commitment to raise and sustain good living standards of people (Jinping, 2014). Reforms were introduced by Communist Party to turn the idea into reality. Prominent feature of reforms was that it was a mix of communist and liberal ideas, practices and values. The apex role of Communist Party is backed by Constitution of China, thus reducing the role of other parties in governance. This enables the Party to legislate, introduce major reforms along with electing major officials of the state. It also gives the Party highest level of decision making authority; therefore China is also referred as a “Party- State”.
