Senior Chinese leader Zhou Yongkang on Friday urged increased supervision over the country's law enforcement agencies and further reforms for its judicial system.

Zhou, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks while attending a plenary meeting of the Political and Legal Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee in Beijing.

Zhou said a classified management system for judical personnel should be established.

Social contradictions have posed a challenge to law enforcement officers and political and legal affairs authorities must now take on a heavy task, according to Zhou, who is also secretary of the CPC Central Committee's Commission for Political and Legal Affairs.

Party Committee and political and legal affairs commissions at all levels should improve and strengthen law enforcement in accordance with Chinese law, Zhou added.
