At the recent 16th CCP Congress, Jiang Zemin managed to sneak his "Three Represents" theory into the Communist Party Bylaws. One longtime China watcher told AFAR that despite Jiang's stepping down from the Party chief post, he remains behind the Bamboo Curtain to dictate Hu Jintao, the new successor. By securing his theory in the Party Bylaws, Jiang wishes to be seen among the ranks of Communist icons such as Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and Deng.

The People's Daily, the CCP mouthpiece, reported on September 3, 2002 that "the 'Three Represents' theory, created by Jiang, calls on the CCP to always represent the development trend of China's advanced productive forces, the orientation of China's advanced culture, and the fundamental interests of the overwhelming majority of the Chinese people."

Three posters designed specifically for these "Three Represents" theory have been widely promoted nationwide in China. This first poster claims that "the Communist Party always represents the development trend of China's advanced productive forces." (See attached photo)
