“All candidates in the party and government are selected and appointed by their supervisors and predecessors, which means that they need not be answerable to social actors or the public but are accountable to their supervisors within the government (Zhu 2008). These officials are averse to questioning existing policies or proposing radical ideas lest their superiors be displeased (Zhu 2008).”
(Rawat and Morris, 2016: 623)
