According to the Hong Kong Information Center for Human Rights & Democracy (20 September), a Hong Kong-based fax service which reports on dissidence, a Beijing source has disclosed that the schedule for the 18th CPC [Chinese Communist Party] National Congress will possibly be determined at the 26 September Political Bureau meeting, but says that the congress is "very unlikely to be held in October." Viewed from the current preparations, another source close to the Jingxi Guesthouse in Beijing also agreed that "it is not possible for the congress to be held in October." [Passage omitted]
