    Do yo feel comfortable when looking at the usage

    The usage is: a verb acts as a noun



    The statement also paid tribute to what party officials call the Important Thought of Three Represents, Jiang's idea that the Communist Party should represent free-market business leaders and the vanguard of new thinking as well as peasants and workers who traditionally have been its base.

    I would add "which is".

    In my view, the adding seems not that necessary.

    You haven't answered the question:

    Do you feel the construction of "Three Represents" comfortable?

    something's doesn't sound right here

    shouldn't that be "three representatives"?
