Topic: Supporters of China's disgraced Bo Xilai set up political party


Supporters of China's disgraced senior politician Bo Xilai, who has been jailed for corruption, have set up a political party, two separate sources said, in defiance of a decades-old de facto ban on new political parties. The Zhi Xian Party, literally "the constitution is the supreme authority" party, was formed on November 6, three days before the opening of a key meeting of top Communist Party leaders to discuss much-needed economic reforms, the sources said. It named Bo as "chairman for life", Wang Zheng, one of the party's founders and an associate professor of international trade at the Beijing Institute of Economics and Management, told Reuters by telephone. Calls to the Communist Party's propaganda department seeking comment went unanswered.
