BEIJING, Nov. 2 -- Wang Qishan, chief of discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC), on Wednesday called for stricter supervision in a new round of problem-finding inspections.
Wang, who also heads an inspection leadership group of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks at a meeting before the launch of the 11th round of inspections.
The new inspections will scrutinize Party committees of 27 top-level judicial organs, government agencies, institutions, and state media organizations, including the Supreme People's Court, the Supreme People's Procuratorate, the Party School of CPC Central Committee, the China Central Television and the Red Cross Society of China, according to a statement released after the meeting.
Inspection teams will also be dispatched to "reexamine" the work of Beijing, Chongqing, Guangxi and Gansu, said the statement.
The inspections will mainly focus on shortcomings in the implementation of Party rules and disciplines, anti-corruption work, and promotion of Party officials.
Wang also urged discipline watchdogs to target a new round of elections at various levels this year and next, because the work is crucial to the future of the CPC and the state.
He stressed that the inspections should be a comprehensive "checkups" for Party organizations, examined according to Party discipline documents.
The documents include rules on clean governance, disciplinary penalties, inspection tours, intra-party accountability, official promotion and demotion, as well as two regulations approved at a key CPC meeting held last week, namely new norms of political life in the Party and a regulation on internal supervision.
