Communist Party of China
The Communist Party of China (CPC) is the founding and sole governing party of People’s Republic of China. Founded in 1921, it played a prominent role in ousting Kuomintang regime from mainland China and into Taiwan. It is only the second contemporary party in China after Kuomintang.
The CCP celebrated its 100th founding day on July 1 this year. While the party recognises it as the inauguration day, some official documents state that the first meeting was held in Shanghai in the last week of July. According to official claims, the meeting was held from 23 to 31 July 1921. During that period, the party consisted of just 50 members.
