Whose rule? Whose law?

Here's one to puzzle over. What's missing from the description of "rule of law" in this article from The People's Daily, The Communist Party of China's official newspaper?

Rule of law crucial in cyberspace: People's Daily
A commentary in Saturday's People's Daily has defended China's regulation of online content as lawful and necessary.
People's Daily
"The Internet is not above the law. Where there is cyberspace, there is rule of law," said the article in the newspaper.

Multiple opinions can be allowed in cyberspace, but netizens must not stir up enmity, distort facts or encourage criminality, it said…

[T]he commentary warned that without rule of law, the Internet would be riddled with rumors and scams, saying these are especially harmful to young Internet users.

The People's Daily said enterprises, website operators, online stores, social platforms and search engines, as well as the Communist Party of China and the government, must shoulder their responsibilities for cyberspace management.
