中国的民主传统始于大约一百年前，那时世界的注意力还没有被竖立在天安门广场上的白色石膏雕像所吸引。从那时起，天安门事件引发了各种各样的叛乱、辩论和逮捕等，以了解在中国有效实施这类复杂社会组织的最佳方式(Stockmann, and Gallagher, 2011)。
A government system in which all the people from all the states and polity take active participation in the decision making process related to nationalized issues. The participation of people in the decision making process is through voting rights with which they elect representatives for the parliament or any other government assembly is known as democracy in a country (Kriesi, 2013).
The tradition of democracy in china began about one hundred years ago which was before the attention of the world gained by the white plaster statue that was erected on Tiananmen Square. Since then, the issues of Tiananmen Square are giving birth to various rebellions, debates and arrests, etc. for understanding the best ways for effective implementation of this kind of complex social organization in the country (Stockmann, and Gallagher, 2011).
Here the topic of discussion is “China is facing a strong economic growth but still it is not a democracy country”.
The governance of China like the economy of China remains elastic and robust despite of astounding corruption scandals by the government officials and other social ills etc. In comparison to the most of the other liberal democracies in the world the performance of China is arguably better since the past three decades mainly in the domains which were of higher concern for the majority of the Chinese. The practices undertaken in Beijing based on the Confucian tradition of meritocratic governance are not always successful such as meritocracy in the whole political stratum. The local officials in China are promoted based on the various performance criteria that are related to creation of jobs, development at local, social and economic levels, a much healthy and cleaner environment and eradication of poverty etc. The meritocratic political model cannot be separated from the dramatic rise of China since the past three decades.
