President Hu Jintao Monday called for strict discipline to be maintained within the Party, broadly seen as a stern warning against corruption amid elections of Party committees at all levels.

"The Communist Party of China (CPC) will tighten supervision on the whole procedure of electing and promoting officials and will improve transparency," Hu said at a plenary session of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), the party's anti-corruption body.

"The Party will improve the education of senior and chief officials in its newly-elected organs. Newly-elected members of CPC committees should stick to the principles of putting people first and serving the people," said Hu, also the general secretary of the CPC Central Committee.

"We should be fully aware that the battle against corruption is complicated and difficult yet we should be confident and step up efforts," the president added, vowing to work to prevent corruption before it happens.

The elections of CPC committees from township to provincial levels started last year. The CPC is expected to elect a new central committee at its 18th National Congress, scheduled to be held in the second half of 2012.

The Xinhua News Agency quoted a CCDI official as saying that 17 provincial CPC committees will hold elections this year, and deputies to the 18th National Congress of the CPC, National People's Congress and Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference will also be elected.
