BEIJING, July 18 (Xinhua) -- A Communist Party of China (CPC) senior official has pledged to further improve the Party's inspection system and innovate the inspection methods, so as to strengthen supervision over leading officials at all levels.
It aimed to efficiently ensure the Party Central Committee's policies and orders be implemented smoothly, promote the implementation of a scientific concept of development, and step up efforts to develop a clean Party style and governance.
He Guoqiang, a member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau, made the remarks here on Friday at a conference on the issue of inspection by the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee and the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).
The inspection system was included in the CPC Charter at the 17th Party Congress in October in an effort to further perfect the system, said He, also the CCDI secretary.
The inspection should be focused on how these leading officials carry out Party policies, a scientific concept of development in particular, how they do their duties diligently and cleanly, how they follow the principle of Democratic Centralism and select and promote officials, and how they handle issues concerning reform, development and stability.
He said the Party Central Committee would mainly inspect the work of provincial-level leading officials while sending inspectors to some large state-owned enterprises on a selective base.
Provincial Party committees should first strengthen inspection on leading officials at the municipal level and then those at county level. Gradually, such inspection should be carried out for subordinate units of provincial governments and Party committees, provincially-governed state-owned firms and higher-learning institutions.
According to He, what the inspectors have learned in their inspection tours was to be used for reference when promoting officials, while clues that may be useful for detecting crime would be handed over to judicial departments.
The meeting was presided over by Li Yuanchao, head of the organization department of the CPC Central Committee.
