CPC to fight string-pulling for official positions


21:20, June 25, 2013

BEIJING, June 25 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) will work to stop Party members from pulling strings to get themselves official positions or promotions, according to a high-profile conference that closed on Tuesday.

The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee held a special conference from June 22 to 25. The meeting, an important part of the campaign to strengthen ties between Party members and the people, was presided over by General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee Xi Jinping.

The conference specified major aspects for revamping Party members' work style, 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 officials's credentials in a short time.

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

The conference came amid the CPC's efforts to launch a year-long "thorough cleanup" of undesirable work styles such as formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance.
