From China Daily:
China will accelerate efforts to establish next year a spokesperson system at all organizational levels of the Communist Party of China (CPC), a senior official said in Beijing yesterday.
“We’ll push forward the spokesperson system in departments of the CPC Central Committee and provincial-level CPC committees,” Wang Chen, minister of the State Council Information Office, said during a press briefing in the city.
This system will help spokespersons release information on CPC affairs through press conferences and interview opportunities, Wang said.
The move is expected to speed information transparency and political democracy within the Party and society at large, analysts said.
