Ob­servers praise CPC’s re­solve to strictly gov­ern Party

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - By XIN­HUA

Over­seas ob­servers have praised the re­solve of the Com­mu­nist Party of China to strictly gov­ern the Party, say­ing it will en­hance the Party’s gov­er­nance ca­pac­ity and help it lead China to an all-round moder­ately pros­per­ous so­ci­ety.

The Sixth Ple­nary Ses­sion of the 18th CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee, which was held from Mon­day to Thurs­day last week, pushed for the com­pre­hen­sive and strict gov­er­nance of the Party.

For Khalid Ma­hood, pres­i­dent of the Is­lam­abad Coun­cil ofWorld Af­fairs, the CPC’s fo­cus on strict Party gov­er­nance is “a his­toric step”, which will not only im­prove gov­er­nance ef­fi­ciency, but also en­hance Chi­nese peo­ple’s trust in the Party and will im­prove the global im­age of China and the CPC.

“The re­forms in the rul­ing Party will help China foster its com­pre­hen­sive re­form, main­tain its eco­nomic growth and bring ben­e­fits to the world,” Ma­hood said.

At the meet­ing, the CPC called on all its mem­bers to “closely unite around the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee with Com­rade Xi Jin­ping as the core”, and res­o­lutely safe­guard the au­thor­ity of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee and its cen­tral, uni­fied lead­er­ship.

This an­nounce­ment will help China to es­tab­lish a clean and right­eous po­lit­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment and will unite the Party un­der one strong leader, Ma­hood said.

The meet­ing also ap­proved two doc­u­ments on the dis­ci­pline of the Party, in­clud­ing the norm­sof po­lit­i­cal life­with­inthe Party un­der the new sit­u­a­tion

Khalid Ma­hood, and a reg­u­la­tion on in­tra-Party su­per­vi­sion.

Bam­bang Sury­ono, ed­i­tori­nof the In­hua Daily in In­done­sia, said the doc­u­ments sig­nify the in­sti­tu­tion­al­iza­tion of strict Party gov­er­nance, which will help curb cor­rup­tion and dis­ci­plinary of­fense, and en­sure the pro­gres­sive­ness and pu­rity of the CPC.

China’s anti-cor­rup­tion cam­paign has en­tered a “deep­wa­ter area” and es­tab­lish­ing Xi as the core of the CPC Cen­tral Com­mit­tee will help the party con­tinue its drive to fight cor­rup­tion, the po­lit­i­cal an­a­lyst said.

Ger­hard Stahl, a pro­fes­sor at the Col­lege of Europe and for­mer sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the Euro­pean Union’s Euro­pean Com­mit­tee of the Re­gions, said the CPC is try­ing to adapt it­self to a chang­ing en­vi­ron­ment in an ef­fort to grow into a mod­ern po­lit­i­cal party.

Stahl said fight­ing cor­rup­tion is the ba­sis for eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment and strict Party gov­er­nance needs bot­tom-up su­per­vi­sion, call­ing on an­ti­cor­rup­tion of­fi­cials to be re­spon­si­ble while en­hanc­ing in­tra-Party dis­ci­pline.
