Lead­er­ship ex­pected to dis­cuss high-level va­can­cies

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

China’s top lead­er­ship is ex­pected to dis­cuss how to fill high-level va­can­cies left as a re­sult of the na­tion’s anti-graft cam­paign, ac­cord­ing to po­lit­i­cal sci­en­tists and com­men­ta­tors.

They said that apart from dis­cus­sion of the na­tion’s 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20), the va­can­cies and per­son­nel trans­fers will most likely be on the agenda at next week’s lead­er­ship meet­ing.

Former high-pro­file of­fi­cials or of­fi­cers have faced or are un­der cor­rup­tion charges or dis­ci­plinary in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Some in­di­vid­u­als who used to seek fa­vors and pro­tec­tion from them have also been re­moved from their po­si­tions and charged with cor­rup­tion.

The high-level va­can­cies in­clude a deputy sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion, who serves as an as­sis­tant to the com­mis­sion chief and the coun­try’s top graft-buster.

The fifth ple­nary ses­sion of the 18th Com­mu­nist Party of China Cen­tral Com­mit­tee will be held from Oct 26 to 29 in Bei­jing.
