Chapter Summary

The village committee was initially intended to support the local government in maintaining social order and only later assumed the management of the fundamental social, political, economic, and cultural affairs of the village community. However, through the nationwide growth and practical implementation of village autonomy, the deficiencies of both the organic law and the supplementary measures were gradually exposed as these became "bottlenecks" restraining the development of village self-rule. This chapter has discussed and analyzed the current condition of and accumulated experience in autonomous village governance, as well as the problems arising from the implementation thereof. The author hopes that the improvement of village autonomy legislation shall, without delay, be prioritized on the legislative and administrative agendas of state governing bodies in recognition of the strategic significance of this work in establishing a solid foundation for the construction of a socialist state under the rule of law.

Keywords: autonomous village governance; provisional organic law; Township government
