CPC regulation pledges no exception in intra-Party supervision

(Xinhua)    19:56, November 02, 2016

BEIJING, Nov. 2 -- There should be no prohibited zone or exception from internal Party supervision, said a Communist Party of China (CPC) regulation published on Wednesday.

The regulation on internal supervision, approved at the sixth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee last week, consists of eight chapters and 47 articles, aimed at strengthening governance of the Party.

The first chapter clarifies the purpose and foundation of the regulation, the second to fifth chapters focus on supervisory bodies and supervisory systems, and the last three chapters included the relations between CPC's own supervision and external supervision.

"Trust in the Party's members should not supplant supervision," the document says, adding that such supervision is important to purifying, improving and reforming the Party and will ensure the Party is always the core leadership in building socialism with Chinese characteristics.

Noting that the regulation aims to uphold the CPC's leadership, strengthen Party building, promote the comprehensive and strict governance of the Party and maintain the Party's status and purity, the document stressed that self-supervision should be carried out in accordance with regulations and through the principle of democratic centralism.

The mission is to ensure the Party Constitution, its regulations and code of conduct are properly enforced; to maintain Party unity and solidarity; and, primarily, to resolve exhaustion and slackness in the Party leadership, the regulation said.

Supervision will check how principles are enforced by Party organizations; that minority members obey the majority; that Party organizations at lower levels obey their superiors and all Party organizations and members obey the CPC National Congress and the CPC Central Committee.

Supervision will also examine work styles, connections with the public, conduct in selection of Party officials and self-discipline measures.

The main targets of supervision are the CPC's top organs and officials, particularly senior officials, according to the document.
