Jackie Chan declares for China’s Communist party

Hollywood legend Jackie Chan has said he is interested in joining the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC).

This comes as the 67-year-old actor and stunt artist shared his thoughts about a keynote speech delivered by President Xi Jinping at the centenary celebrations of the CPC on 1 July.

According to Global Times, The Drunken Master actor said he was proud to be Chinese and expressed his support for the political party.

“I can see the greatness of the CPC, and it will deliver what it says, and what it promises in less than 100 years, but only a few decades,” he said, adding: “I want to become a CPC member.”

Recently, the actor was cast in the Epic Journey, a theatrical performance dedicated to celebrating the founding of the CPC.

During his performance, Chan sang the song “Defend the Yellow River”, which was written during China’s war with Japan in 1939.

Chan sparked anger in 2008 after making an endorsement of China’s strict censorship policy and media controls.

“I’m not sure if it’s good to have freedom or not. I’m really confused now. If you’re too free, you’re like the way Hong Kong is now. It’s very chaotic. Taiwan is also chaotic,” he told the Boao Forum for Asia.

“I’m gradually beginning to feel that we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want,” he said.
