Scru­tiny of Party of­fi­cials in­vited

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - TOP NEWS - By CHINA DAILY

The top rul­ing body of the Com­mu­nist Party of China urged all Party of­fi­cials on Tues­day to in­vite scru­tiny and su­per­vi­sion from the pub­lic.

The Po­lit­i­cal Bureau of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee made the de­ci­sion at a thought-shar­ing meet­ing presided over by Xi Jin­ping, gen­eral sec­re­tary of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee.

The Po­lit­i­cal Bureau stressed that “the higher an of­fi­cial’s po­si­tion is … the more open he or she shall be to scru­tiny and su­per­vi­sion”, and there is no ex­cep­tion within the Party, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

Mem­bers of the Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and Po­lit­i­cal Bureau must get used to work­ing un­der scru­tiny and su­per­vi­sion from other Party mem­bers, from mem­bers of the pub­lic and from the me­dia, the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau said.

Xi was quoted by the news re­lease as say­ing that mem­bers of the Po­lit­i­cal Bureau will take the lead i n mak­ing use of “crit­i­cism and self-crit­i­cism” to make sure they are al­ways on the right track. He en­cour­aged Party mem­bers to speak out against wrong­do­ing, even when a wrong­doer is of a higher rank.

The Po­lit­i­cal Bureau had a good record of obey­ing Party rules over the past year as its mem­bers con­tin­ued to im­prove their work style and to re­duce un­nec­es­sary for­mal­i­ties, ac­cord­ing to the news re­lease.

By the end of last year, the CPC had 88.7 mil­lion mem­bers, re­main­ing the largest po­lit­i­cal party in the world, Party statis­tics show.
