ABSTRACT
The article examines the importance given to stability maintenance by the Chinese government under the leadership of President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao. Stability maintenance is said to have become associated with the suppressive governance approach of the Hu-Wen administration. It is asserted that political conservatism and the influence of Communist Party elders continue to prevail based on the line-up of the Politburo Standing Committee (PSC) that was announced in November 2012.
