Party steps up graft campaign

THE Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China, the Party's internal anti-graft body, closed its fourth plenary session in Beijing yesterday, pledging to further step up its anti-corruption campaign.

A communique said the CCDI would work harder in the fight against corruption, improve the Party's work style and build a clean government.

The commission would also strengthen education on the Party's work style and discipline among Party members.

The commission will punish those who crave official positions, sell or buy official positions, and those who try to win votes by bribery.

The commission promised to beef up education, supervision, reform and innovation to prevent corruption.

The commission vowed to make greater efforts to investigate cases concerning abuse of power, corruption and bribery, and dereliction of duty and misconduct which involve leading organs and leading officials.

The CCDI would also investigate corruption behind mass incidents and serious incidents which lead to serious consequences.

The commission would ask leading officials to report personal matters like housing, investment and the jobs of their spouses and children to the commission to beef up self-discipline, and strengthen the management of officials whose spouses and children have emigrated.

It also urged the disciplinary inspection and supervision organs of all levels to realize the importance and urgency of strengthening self-improvement, and called on the cadres to be loyal to the Party and country and present an image that is respectable and approachable.
