CPC leaders take lead in campaign against harmful work styles (2)


08:13, June 26, 2013


In Tuesday's statement, the Political Bureau hailed the "eight-point" rules introduced by the new CPC leadership last year to fight bureaucracy and formalism as "effective."

During the just-concluded conference, Political Bureau members discussed measures to enhance efforts to improve their work styles. They also examined their own conduct to identify whether they comply with the rules for the fight against bureaucracy and formalism, which were introduced by the new CPC leadership late last year.

Political Bureau members have conscientiously and earnestly implemented the rules, and the move has been effective in terms of simplifying meetings and speeches, standardizing leaders' overseas visits, improving news coverage of leaders' work and exercising thrift, the statement said.

The rules have helped to curb pomp, ceremony, unnecessary meetings and extravagance, while also improving the Party's work styles and boosting the CPC's prestige, according to the statement.

The Political Bureau urged for the rules to be better carried out in the future, vowing "no exceptions" in the implementation of relevant regulations.

"Countermeasures aiming to dodge these rules should be resolutely rectified," the statement said.

The CPC will work to prevent officials from enjoying excess benefits by standardizing their welfare entitlement, according to the conference.

The conference ordered governments at all levels to standardize officials' entitlement to offices, housing, cars, secretaries, public receptions, guards, social benefits and vacations, ensuring that no one enjoys excess benefits and that no official gives or accepts gifts.

The conference also called for efforts to perfect the official performance evaluation system and let it drive changes in work styles.

Moreover, a promotion mechanism in which officials get promoted for good work styles, and warned or punished for work style misconduct, should be put into place.

The Political Bureau vowed to stop Party members from pulling strings to get themselves official positions or promotions.

The conference specified major aspects for revamping Party members' work styles, including boosting the efficiency of theory learning, article writing and meetings; controlling expenditures on official overseas visits, public vehicles and official receptions; preventing officials from extorting bribes and accepting high-end membership cards or prepaid cards.

Moreover, great efforts should also be made to scrap "face-lifting" projects, which were described as short-sighted projects undertaken for the sake of burnishing an official's credentials in a short time.

Efforts should also be made to cut back on unnecessary festivities, forums or international conferences, and to curb the construction of wasteful and grand government buildings.
