BEIJING, July 30 -- The anti-decadence campaign by the Communist Party of China (CPC) has demonstrated the Party's resolution to eliminate corruption from its members and will enhance public confidence, the People's Daily said.
In a commentary to be published Thursday, the CPC's flagship newspaper stressed that the CPC will not tolerate any corruption, as combating corruption is the common will of Party members and the people.
The Party has pledged to hunt corrupt officials from high-ranking "tigers" to low-level "flies" and it is keeping its promise with unprecedented anti-corruption dynamics, the commentary said.
These moves have also won support from the public, it added.
The newspaper noted that casting out corrupt members is necessary for the Party to keep close ties to the people.
The anti-decadence drive matters to the Party's fate. The article said "it is not an expedient choice, but the CPC's strategic task."
