“Un­fair­ness and cor­rup­tion are two things the people hate most in our cur­rent so­ci­ety. We are ap­plaud­ing and hold­ing up our hands in fa­vor of anti-cor­rup­tion mea­sures. They are very nec­es­sary.”

CPPCC mem­ber and pro­fes­sor at the Chi­nese Academy of Forestry “The con­struc­tion of an ef­fi­cient sys­tem is a fun­da­men­tal part of our anti-cor­rup­tion work. The method of us­ing the sys­tem to man­age af­fairs and people is more im­por­tant and use­ful than depend­ing on self-dis­ci­pline. Pub­lic power should be over­seen by a trans­par­ent sys­tem. Strict pun­ish­ments should be im­posed on those found guilty of cor­rup­tion to en­sure that of­fi­cials ven­er­ate the laws of the coun­try and hold them in awe.”

NPC deputy and di­rec­tor of the Jiangsu Ruixin Law Firm “The ef­fec­tive­ness of an­ticor­rup­tion work not only lies in the thor­ough in­ves­ti­ga­tion and pun­ish­ment of those found guilty, but also in tak­ing pre­cau­tions to pre­vent any­thing that breeds cor­rup­tion. By do­ing so, we are en­deav­or­ing to pro­mote the con­struc­tion of a sys­tem that in­te­grates pun­ish­ment and preven­tion.”

NPC deputy and chief procu­ra­tor of the People’s Procu­ra­torate of He­nan prov­ince “The work of com­bat­ing cor­rup­tion and build­ing a clean govern­ment should be a fun­da­men­tal project for the coun­try. Anti-cor­rup­tion work should be guar­an­teed by the build­ing of a sys­tem by which we can reg­u­late the use of power. The idea that ‘ab­so­lute power cor­rupts ab­so­lutely’ is to­tally cor­rect. ”

CPPCC mem­ber and chair­man of China Na­tional Petroleum Corp “The key to anti-cor­rup­tion work lies in sys­tem-build­ing. Pre­vi­ous ex­pe­ri­ence shows that such cam­paigns typ­i­cally only last for short time, re­sult­ing in prob­lems reemerg­ing when the cam­paign ends. Anti-cor­rup­tion work can­not be like a gust of wind, and es­tab­lish­ing a thor­ough long-term mech­a­nism to res­train the be­hav­ior of Party mem­bers ef­fec­tively is es­sen­tial. To fill in the le­gal blanks, I am call­ing for an anti-cor­rup­tion law to be put on the agenda as soon as pos­si­ble.”

NPC deputy and di­rec­tor of the Guang­dong Gu­lai Law Firm. “The cen­tral govern­ment should show zero tol­er­ance to cor­rupt be­hav­ior. High­pres­sure anti-cor­rup­tion mea­sures should pro­duce an at­mos­phere that will con­stantly re­mind all govern­ment of­fi­cials and staff: ‘If you stretch your hands out to profit, you will be caught’. In this sense, we need to learn from the ex­pe­ri­ences of Hong Kong and Sin­ga­pore.”
