Anti-graft chief seeks expert advice

Scholars are urging the authorities to start making public details of officials' property in order to make a breakthrough in their intensifying anti-corruption campaigns after the leadership reshuffle following the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The newly-elected head of the Party's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), Wang Qishan, met eight scholars and experts in Beijing Friday to seek advice on how to combat corruption. Many suggested that the Party start publishing details of officials' possessions, a move that has been urgently called for by the public.

Ma Huaide, vice president of the China University of Political Science and Law, said publicity is a sharp weapon in the fight against corruption, and as long as officials' property information is open to the public, it will be impossible to hide many corrupt activities.

He also proposed several laws to regulate officials' decision-making power, clarify the responsibilities and powers of different government departments and publicize government affairs, as many of these areas are only governed by administrative regulations that lack legal teeth.

"Many officials grow corrupt as they enjoy privileges in making major decisions," Ma told the Global Times, explaining that to prevent corruption at its root, officials should be restricted in using these privileges, especially when it comes to decisions that involve public interests.
