Jackie Chan wants to join China’s Communist Party, backs crackdown on pro-democracy protests
Jackie Chan has expressed interest in joining the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC). This is not the first time he has lauded the Chinese regime and has in the past come under sharp criticism for backing Beijing’s crackdown on pro-democracy protests in the former British colony, Hong Kong. The actor and filmmaker expressed his desire to join the CPC at a symposium in Beijing on Thursday in which Chinese film insiders spoke and shared their thoughts regarding the keynote speech delivered by President Xi Jinping at the centenary celebrations of the party on July 1. Jackie said, “I can see the greatness of the CPC, and it will deliver what it says, and what it promises in less than 100 years, but only a few decades. I want to become a CPC member.” He has been a supporter of the CPC for years and served as a member of Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) - an advisory body of professionals nominated by the party. Since 2013, Jackie has been a pro-Communist politician and had served in the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. After the Hong Kong electoral reform in 2021, Jackie became an Election Committee’s member and could vote for the Chief Executive.
