BEIJING, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) — China’s top anti-graft official on Sunday called on the Party’s disciplinary officials to uphold “strictness” as the mainstay of disciplinary inspection in the long term.
Zhao Leji, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and head of the central leading group on disciplinary inspection, made the remarks during a conference ahead of the sixth round of disciplinary inspection by the 19th CPC Central Committee.
Zhao stressed the need to identify problems more accurately and objectively and promote their solutions during the inspection.
The essence of disciplinary inspection is the political supervision of higher-level Party organizations over lower-level Party organizations in fulfilling the functions and responsibilities of CPC leadership, Zhao noted.
Disciplinary inspection should not be turned into general business inspection or work supervision and should not be generalized or simplified, he said.
Zhao demanded a focus on the oversight of the leading officials and the “vital few”, and people and matters that erode the very foundations of the Party’s governance and undermine the interests of the public, so as to maintain the authority, deterrence and impetus of disciplinary inspection.
He also asked the inspectors to carry out accurate and effective supervision based on the characteristics of different provincial-level regions and the central Party and government departments that are being inspected. Enditem
