China's communist party , have invited china's richest person to join its Central Committee, is this the first step towards democracy?

China's communist party, have invited china's richest person to join its powerful Central Committee, what does this mean, is this the first step towards new phase of opening up and democratization of the party? Or China's communist party is abandoning last of its remaining socialist makeover and converting from a socialist movement to a rich men's club?

Will these new rich leaders, promote and allow western style democratization of the of the society and political system or they will choose to keep the existing status que, because it serves their commercial interests?

I beliefe with these new development in the shape of the Chinese communist party, China will enter new phase political development. What do you think?

    Oct 3 2011: Dear Sabin, to me with this move the Chinese communist party is abandoning all the remaining communist ideas, which were mostly representing the chinese workers and farmer classes. Therefore I am asking this question does it also mean that next step will be to have one party democracy or Instead they will now become more a rich men club?
