Xi says anti-graft ef­fort will not be eased

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

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.
