The country’s top disciplinarywatchdog initiated a newround of anti-graft inspections onWednesday, targeting theCommunist Party of China officials at 27 central departments and public institutions.
The teams, the 11th such group sent by the CPCCentralCommission for Discipline Inspection, should prioritize inspections of strict governance of the Party and “resolutely” safeguard the authority of theCPCCentral Committee, saidWang Qishan, head of the commission, at a meeting in Beijing.
The newround in the inspection campaign comes theweek after the Sixth Plenary Session of the 18thCPCCentral Committee, which passed two intra-Party disciplinary regulations and declared President Xi Jinping as the Party’s “core” leader.
Such inspectionswere launched by the commission to supervise Party and government departments in fighting corruption since the 18thCPC NationalCongress in 2012.
More than 200 organizations have been inspected in the past four years, andweak Party leadership, lackluster Party-building and malpractice in personnel arrangementwere among the commonproblems found.
The targets of the latest inspection are 27 central agencies, including the SupremePeople’sCourt, the SupremePeople’s Procuratorate, the Party School of theCentral Committee of theCPC and GuangmingDaily, as well as official public institutions such as theRed Cross Society of China.
Additionally, Beijing and Chongqing municipalities, Gansu province and the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region will be re-inspected to see if they have fixed their problems, according to theCCDI.
