As an important part of the personnel system reform,the reform of the system for selecting and appointment of leading cadres,which aims to make it more scientific,democratic and institutionalized,has entered a new phase of overall development at the beginning of the 21st century.As to the system,the mechanisms of selection,appointment,evaluation, rotation and supervision have established after several stages of planning and trial implementation.However,as a matter of fact,it is not the system that selects the leading cadres of provincial governments. For a long time,the appointment of provincial leaders has been subject to the control of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, which is an effective way for the central to exert influence over the provincial governments.The distribution of political authority is the key element which determines how the system for selecting cadres functions in practice.Taking the two recent elections of provincial leaders as a case,this essay studies the effectiveness of the system for selecting provincial leading cadres.This essay has two assumptions:Firstly,the core of political system is the distribution of political authority.If it remains the same, the level of political development will be limited.Secondly,the improvement of the mechanisms,procedures and rules is the precondition for the effectiveness of the political system.This essay puts forward four arguments.Firstly,the core issue of the reform of the system for selecting provincial leading cadres is the power of appointment,which determines how the system is carried out in real life.The provincial-level practice of the system shows that the reform hasn' t been able to get to the root of the issue.Secondly,though the practice of the provincial selection system has shown some improvements, not all of them are the results of the system reform itself.The reforms in social and economic areas have also contributed to some of progress. Thirdly,the fundamental reason for the failure of electoral system is that the party in power hasn't correctly understood its role in democratic political system.A pro-democracy party should fully realize that only a well-established legal system can protect the democratic rights of citizens.Fourthly,from the perspective of actual operation, there is still a lot to do with the electoral system,especially with its specific procedures and rules;otherwise the loopholes will be plugged up by the Central Committee' s appointment.This is the main reason why the present electoral system is only democratic in form,but not in substance.Therefore,in order to make the electoral system really functional,the specific procedures and rules should be further improved to ensure the independent exercise of the right of vote.
