Chinese Electoral System

The Chinese Electoral System

Kate Smith

The People’s Republic of China (PRC) runs their elections in a similar fashion to that of the United States. However, there is one major factor that greatly influences the outcomes of their elections. The Communist Party of China is the largest and most influential political party. To understand the intricacies of the PRC’s election process, it is important to understand the structure of the Chinese National Government, voter eligibility in China, the election process, and the election committee’s role.
