The important theory of "Three Represents" is proposed to be written into China's Constitution, along with the provision that "private property obtained legally shall not be violated."
The proposal on amending the country's 1982 Constitution made by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) was tabled with the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature Monday.
The "Three Represents" theory shall be one of the guiding principles of the nation as heritage and further development of Marxism, Leninism, Mao Zedong Thought and Deng Xiaoping Theory, according to the proposed amendments.
The proposed revision on private property protection puts private assets of Chinese citizens on an equal footing with public property, which are "not to be violated" in the existing Constitution.
Wang Zhaoguo, vice chairman of the NPC Standing Committee, explained the CPC proposal to lawmakers Monday in his capacity of a member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
