The People’s Republic of China (PRC) was established on October 1, 1949, and it is governed by a single-party system, The Communist Party of China (CCP). The president is also the Chinese Communist Party’s leader. The People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) new Constitution was approved in 1982. The Presidency of the People’s Republic of China, the State Council, the Central Military Commission, the National People’s Congress, the Political Consultative Conference of the People of China, the Supreme Court, and the Attorney General are the central organs of the state. Although PRC does not define itself as a federal state, it has five autonomous regions, territories, counties, rural towns, and it has created some constitutional governance understanding for these local governments.
