Inner-party democracy is an important part in a party politics. Its development has direct influence on a party’s political vitality and its position in a country’s political life. It is also fundamental to the embodiment of a parry’s progressiveness and the enhancement of its capacity to rule the country. The Marxist thought of human subjectivity gives us a new perspective of scientifically understanding the construction of inner-party democracy. It reveals us that, to carry out all activities and to build a system, we should transfer to respect the human subject and the realization of human subjectivity. The development of political civilization is after all people’s own progress and development. Today, to examine the construction of inner-party democracy from the perspective of members’subjectivity helps us to accurately grasp the value orientation of inner-party democracy and to understand the problems and contradictions in practice.

It points out that inner-party democracy is vulnerable in practice because of lack of subjectivity, and thus expounds the necessity of the recognition and construction of party members’ subjectivity. It also demonstrates the basic path to construct inner-party democracy under the dimension of party members’ subjectivity.
