The People's Republic Of China: Post Mao (1976-1983): After Mao Zedong's death, Hua Guofeng, Mao's designated successor and Chairman of the Communist Party of China and Premier of the People's Republic of China. quickly arrested the Gang of Four - Mao's wife Jiang Qing, Zhang Chunqiao, Yao Wenyuan, and Wang Hongwen - the political faction who came to control the CPC during the Cultural Revolution. and held them responsible for the excesses of the Cultural Revolution. CPC elder Deng Xiaoping took power in 1978, and instituted significant economic reforms. The Party loosened governmental control over citizens' personal lives, and the communes were gradually disbanded in favor of working contracted to households. This marked China's transition from a planned economy to a mixed economy with an increasingly open-market environment. In September 1977, Deng first proposed the idea of "Boluan Fanzheng", attempting to dismantle the far-left Maoist policies associated with the Cultural Revolution. In June 1981, the Chinese government's condemnation of the Cultural Revolution culminated in the Resolution on Certain Questions in the History of Our Party Since the Founding of the People's Republic of China, adopted by the Sixth Plenary Session of the Eleventh Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party. At the Third Plenum of the Eleventh National Party Congress Central Committee ( December 18 - December 22, 1978), Deng embarked China on the road to Reform and Opening-up (???? Gaige Kaifang), policies that began with the de-collectivisation of the countryside, followed with industrial reforms aimed at decentralizing government controls in the industrial sector. Deng championed the idea of Special Economic Zones (SEZ), including Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Xiamen, areas where foreign investment would be allowed to pour in without strict government restraint and regulations, running on a basically capitalist system. The 5th National People's Congress adopted its current constitution, The Constitution of the People's Republic of China, on December 4, 1982, nominally the supreme law of the People's Republic of China, on December 4, 1982. With further revisions about every five years, it is the fourth constitution in the country's history, superseding the 1954 constitution, the 1975 constitution, and the 1978 constitution. Though technically the "supreme legal authority" and "fundamental law of the state", the ruling CCP has a documented history of violating many of the constitution's provisions and censoring calls for greater adherence to it. Furthermore, claims of violations of constitutional rights cannot be used in Chinese courts, and the National People's Congress Constitution and Law Committee, the legislative committee responsible for constitutional review, has never ruled a law or regulation unconstitutional. Deng recognized the importance of science and technology in the "Four Modernizations" to strengthen the fields of agriculture, industry, defense, and science and technology, pointing out that "science and technology are the primary productive force".
