Smaller of­fices for min­is­ters, pro­vin­cial gov­er­nors

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

China’s anti-graft body has put a limit of 54 square me­ters on of­fices for min­is­ters and pro­vin­cial gov­er­nors.

Their deputies’ of­fices will be 12 square me­ters smaller, said the Com­mu­nist Party of China’s Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion (CCDI).

Luxury and spa­cious of­fices by Chi­nese of­fi­cials have caused public out­rage for years and be­came a tar­get in the cur­rent anti-cor­rup­tion drive.

And there are lim­its on pri­vate toi­lets. Min­is­ters and pro­vin­cial gov­er­nors shall have them as long as the of­fices meet the new size re­quire­ments. But deputies are not al­lowed to have pri­vate toi­lets, ac­cord­ing to the of­fi­cial doc­u­ment.
