Social media posts that a newly wed couple employed by the Nanchang Railway Bureau transcribed the Constitution of the Communist Party of China (CPC) on their wedding night have shed light on an ongoing nationwide education campaign among Party members.

Two employees of the rail bureau of Nanchang in East China's Jiangxi Province copied the CPC Constitution on their wedding night "to create a wonderful memory," read an article posted Monday on the bureau's WeChat account.

The article said that Monday was the 20th day of a campaign entitled "Copy the CPC Constitution for 100 days." The post also displayed many other employees' transcriptions.

Many other State-owned enterprises and governmental agencies across China have launched similarly themed activities to encourage Party members to transcribe the Constitution and have displayed the copies online.

The leading Party committee of China Telecom's Inner Mongolia branch asked all Party members in the company to copy at least 500 words of the Constitution every day for six months beginning on April 1, according to news site

A WeChat account named "Learn from President Xi Jinping" affiliated to the People's Daily Overseas Edition also launched a 100-day activity, in which it has displayed copies of the Constitution transcribed by Party members from all over the country every day since March 1.

In a document issued on February 28, the General Office of the CPC Central Committee announced the launch of a national education campaign focusing on the study of the Constitution, Party rules and Xi's speeches.

The document required Party committees at all levels to implement the education campaign, guiding members to abide by Party rules and encouraging them to act in accordance with CPC Central Committee policies and guidelines.

The document said the campaign should target Party members with wavering confidence in communism and socialism with Chinese characteristics, as well as those who advocate Western values, violate Party rules, work inefficiently or behave unethically, according to the Xinhua News Agency.
