New round of anti-graft inspections launched
The country’ s top disciplinary watchdog initiated a newround of anti-graft inspections on Wednesday, targeting the Communist Party of China officials at 27 central departments and public institutions.
The teams, the 11th such group sent by the C PC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, should prioritize inspections of strict governance of the Party and “resolutely” safeguard the authority of the CPC Central Committee, said Wang 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 18th CPC Central Committee, which passed two intra-Party disciplinary regulations and declared President Xi Jinping as the Party’s “core” leader.
Such inspections were launched by the commission to supervise Party and government departments in fighting corruption since the 18th CPC National Congress in 2012.
More than 200 organizations have been inspected in the past four years, andweak Party leadership, lackluster Party-building and malpractice in personnel arrangement were among the common problems found.
The targets of the latest inspection are 27 central agencies, including the Supreme People’ s Court, the Supreme People’s Procuratorate, the Party School of the Central Committee of the CPC and Guangming Daily, as well as official public institutions such as the Red 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 the CCDI.
