This chapter demonstrates the ramifications of the central government's belief that Xinjiang's problems were the result of Soviet intrigue and manipulation in the area. In the first section the government also reserved the right to train all newly elected officials, a clause that potentially enabled the government to assess not only the new officials' abilities but also their political stance. These problems were finances, unemployment, corruption, military discipline, appointment of delegates to the National Assembly, Ashan members of the government, implementation of the peace agreement and the Government Political Program, and the question of the East Turkestan Republic. All of these problems represented major threats to the continuation of the fragile coalition. While preoccupation with a theme is not necessarily an indication of sincerity or even of dedication to such an ideal, in this instance Zhang and other members of the new coalition government knew the necessity of unity for the continuation of their still fragile coalition.
