Officials in China's capital city Beijing will be held accountable for erroneous decision making and inept leadership by a new regulation, China Daily reported Thursday.

Both Communist Party of China (CPC) officials and administrative officials in Beijing will be forced to resign or to submit to punishments if the government offices they oversee fail to perform their duties, according to a temporary regulation jointly released by the General Offices of the city's Party committee and government.

Some provinces, for their part, have passed similar rules, but those have only applied to administrative officials.

The city's rule stipulates that both Party and administrative officials will be held accountable for making bad decisions, falling down in their duties, failing to properly deal with mass disturbances and making similar types of mistakes.

The stipulation is a sign of progress in the supervision of Party officials, an unnamed official from Beijing Party discipline inspection commission was quoted as saying by Thursday's China Daily.
