Most important Question:
Why would they even deserve it?
China's still stuck in pretty much still a feudal system,
nowadays badly disguised behind a sham front.
Still mostly feudal, only the dinasty has changed,
and it will keep doing that, until a controlled process of change of power,
from the people, by the people and for the people is implemented.
I.e. Democracy.

Want it, come get it.

Direct democracy.

Oddly enough,
Switzerland does have Invasion, Occupation and Annexation plans for where I'm living.
Do I want to be told when and how to use my own Toilet in my own home?
No!
Even when it's a referendum that decided that I have to sit down for peeing in my own home after 2200.
There are limits,
that's one of things a parliamentary system is for.

Theoritically a what you're calling: "parliamentary system" is great - practically it simply leads to oligarchy and plutarchy.

That's when the Public is too lazy to take care of the checks, and subsequently the balances as well, in a later stage of that.
Freedom doesn't come for free.

Direct democracy is working in Switzerland is not the only thing notable about switzerland.
It's general accepted concensus that everybody has to do his part for the public,
alongside his normal job.
Implement it where people will not give a damn, and it will go wrong just as well.
And it does require much more public participation from the individual.

That's a version of it, not the most direct that it could be though. Gaddafi supposedly had wanted to make a more direct version of current democracy, or at least that's what his propaganda used to say 10-20 years ago. It sounded kinda cool.

Ghaddafi had a tribal council.
he involved tribal heads.
Hardly a form of direct democracy,
even more hardly anything coming close to switzerland.
Might've been better there than, say, some places on the other side of the sahara,
but noot really anywhere oecd tier.
Did he just defend national interests?
He was responsible for terrorism on uninvolved German Civilians in Germany,
which itself was not in any way involved in any troubles with lybia before that either.
That's confirmed by East Germany, and predated his international isolation.
If that sounds trustworthy as an idol for you, good luck, you'll need it.

The Failure that you are personally exposed to is not primarily of systematic nature,
that could have been any different with different systematic structures,
it was, is a failure of the public involvement, of the necessary civil society that is needed.
