, Dec 5 () –
The Chinese Government has published this Sunday a criticism of the democratic system of the United States, which it describes as “elitist” and full of “structural deficiencies”, in a new response to the celebration next week of the so-called Summit of Democracies, organized by the White House and to which China is not invited.
“For a long time, the United States has ignored the structural flaws of its own democratic system and the inadequacy of internal democratic practices,” according to the document released by the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
In the text, published on the institution’s website, the Ministry concludes that “American democracy is reduced to monetary policy” and that the traditional North American motto ‘one person, one vote’ actually means “the government of a few elites. “
“The checks and balances of power become policies of veto and racial discrimination is deeply ingrained,” according to the note, which describes a system rife with “problems such as partisan antagonism, political polarization, social disruption, racial conflicts and the polarization between rich and poor “.
“The world would be a better place,” the document added, “if no country tries to monopolize democratic standards, or impose its own political system on others, or use democracy as a tool to repress other countries.”
This publication follows that of another text that appeared this past Saturday, the ‘White Book of Democracy’, a compilation of democratic values through the interpretation of the ruling Communist Party.
The guest list of the President of the United States, Joe Biden, to the meeting of Democrats that will take place in Washington on December 9 and 10 is not without controversy as all the members of the European Union are present, except Hungary. Poland, whose government has recently staged clashes with Brussels and has been questioned for its respect for Human Rights.
In total, the United States has invited 110 countries, including Taiwan, to the conference, sparking friction with China. Outside the list are other traditional allies of Washington such as Egypt, Morocco or Turkey, as well as powers such as Russia and China itself.
