Commentary: CPC leadership wages war against formalism, bureaucracy (2)


08:42, December 06, 2012

Tuesday's meeting underscored the exemplary role of top officials in improving the Party's work style, saying the Political Bureau members should "implement the dos before asking others to do so, and certainly do not do something themselves if they don't want others to do it."

The style of officialdom, especially among top officials, has an important impact upon that of the Party and government as a whole and even on general society. Top leaders' conduct can have butterfly effect on lower-level officials.

Many officials admitted that they have suffered a lot from formalism and bureaucracy and want to keep away from it. But, as the saying "Once in use, forever a custom" exemplifies, many have to force themselves to follow suit once a way of doing things has been in place for a long time.

Since the new CPC helmsmen were elected about 20 days ago, they have conducted themselves in an exemplary way in improving the Party's work style.

Xi Jinping said in his speech when meeting the press after being elected general secretary of the CPC Central Committee that the new leadership had taken on an important responsibility for the people and the party had to solve problems such as "corruption, being divorced from the people, going through formalities and bureaucracy."
