Xi says anti-graft effort will not be eased
President Xi Jinping said China will not relax its antigraft efforts this year and that the campaign will lead to the grassroots level after rooting out corrupt high-ranking figures in the central government.
In a keynote speech signaling what researchers called “a turning point” in political development, Xi expressed confidence in the anti-graft campaign’s success and its benefits for all citizens.
Speaking at a conference on Tuesday of the country’s top graft-buster, the Communist Party of China’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, Xi said that in 2016, China will see more citizens sharing in the victories of the anti-graft campaign.
He urged the CCDI to be more focused on fighting corruption at the government’s grassroots levels, and on any in just law enforcement processes, in order to gather greater support from citizens.
