China’s top anti-graft agency on Saturday pledged to work for a complete supervisory network over all state functionaries, under the Party’s leadership.
Reform of the supervisory system will be advanced in an all-round way, said a communique adopted at the second plenary session of the 19th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which was held from Thursday to Saturday.
“The supervisory network will be under unified leadership of the Party,” said the communique.
China is expanding a pilot reform of supervisory systems in Beijing, Shanxi and Zhejiang nationwide, with supervisory commissions being established at national, provincial, city and county levels.
Sharing offices and staff with CPC discipline inspectors, the new commissions will incorporate existing supervisory, corruption prevention and control agencies within government and procuratorates.
Efforts should be made to create a highly efficient supervisory mechanism to ensure coordination between discipline inspection and judicial investigation, the CCDI communique said.
The CCDI will closely monitor undesirable work styles.
“More will be done to curb formalism and bureaucracy,” the communique said. “Those who are active only in words rather than deeds will be held accountable.”
The communique stressed firm opposition to Party officials seeking privileges, and urged efforts to push leading officials to discipline themselves and their families.
The CCDI will continue to dispatch inspection teams regularly and on specific missions and launch more effective education campaigns.
