Shine light on officials' dealings, crack corruption (2)


08:02, March 28, 2012

Therefore, giving more people access to details revealing officials' "private" lives can not only supervise people of power, but also protect them. It is also an effective response to demand as the public appeals to know more about officials in a bid to be able to hold them to account.

However, at present, officials' personal information, which is "properly kept by specially assigned persons," can be read only by staff from discipline and personnel departments and from procuratorates after approval.

Due to the lack of specific publication procedures, Party members and the public cannot discover officials' "private" issues, so the possibility for supervision is limited.

Every good system needs to be implemented in a step-by-step manner and with appropriate circumstances. After two years of practise, it is now time to push forward the reporting and publication of a sensible amount of officials' personal information.

Predictably, it will not be an easy task, nor it will be promoted in a smooth way as it will definitely meet various obstacles. However, nothing can obstruct anti-corruption efforts if the Party and the government have resolution and the people are confident.
