China sharpens supervision of local elections to curb cheating


09:46, September 06, 2011

BEIJING, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- The central government will send special supervision teams to 17 provincial-level regions to ensure fair play at local elections at various levels.

The supervisors, dispatched by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and the Organization Department of the CPC Central Commitee, will inspect election sites, have anonymous interviews with voters, conduct surveys and investigate public complaints, according to the statement released Monday by the two departments.

"Party committees, discipline inspection committees and organization departments at all levels should ensure local election discipline at all times, keeping cautious of any form of vote bribing and investigating every complaint," the statement said.

During the supervision period, inspection teams will set up hotlines to receive election-related complaints.

Previously, the central government sent the first batch of election supervisors to 14 provinces and autonomous regions in April when elections began for new leaders in townships, counties, cities and provincial-level Party committees.
