The Seventh National Congress

The Seventh National Congress, April 23-June 11, 1945, Yanan. In attendance: 547 deputies and 203 alternate deputies, representing 1.21 million Party members.

The congress adopted the following Party line: Fully mobilize the masses and build up the people's forces to defeat the Japanese aggressors, liberate the Chinese people and found a new-democratic China under the leadership of the Communist Party of China.

The new Party Constitution adopted at the congress stipulated that Mao Zedong Thought-which combines the Marxist-Leninist theory with the revolutionary practice of China - be taken as the guideline for all the Party's work. Through the congress the Party achieved unprecedented unity ideologically, politically and organizationally.

New Party Central Committee members were elected. At the First Session of the Seventh Party Central Committee, Mao Zedong was elected chairman of the Party Central Committee, the Party Central Committee's Political Bureau and the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee. Mao Zedong. Zhu De, Liu Shaoqi, Zhou Enlai and Ren Bishi were elected members of the Secretariat of the Party Central Committee.

Under the guidance of the correct line set forth at the Seventh National Party Congress, the Chinese people put out of action 8.07 million KMT troops during the War of Liberation (1946-49) and toppled the rule of the Chiang Kai-shek regime, gaining victory for the new democratic revolution.

The People's Republic of China was founded in October 1949. By 1956, the Party led the people of the various nationalities through the transition from new democracy to socialism. During this period, China's national economy was rehabilitated, planned economic construction was launched, and the socialist transformation of the private ownership of the means of production was for the most part completed.
