China "will not have democracy"

Source: BBC

China will never adopt Western-style democracy with a multi-party system, its top legislator has said.

Parliament chief Wu Bangguo said that China would draw on the achievements of all cultures but would not "simply copy" the West.

Communist Party leadership should be strengthened and "the correct political orientation" maintained, he said.

One party system will continue forever.
