According to the latest online survey by xinhuanet.com forum,
one of the most prestigious and popular online discussion
sites in China, when asked what are the most pressing issues
for China to address in the next five years, the top four,
that attracted total of more than 32 percent of votes among
the 65,000 registered voters, are political reform, anti-corruption,

are based on party
politics and therefore more or less fatally tainted with
fraud, whatever the name they give to themselves or label
others: democracy or dictatorship.
