Fight against corruption keeps going: Constitution
    2017-October-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Communist Party of China (CPC) says in its revised Constitution that the Party must “make comprehensive efforts” to ensure that “the fight against corruption keeps going,” according to a resolution approved by the 19th CPC National Congress yesterday.

Since its 18th National Congress, the Party has made steady progress in exercising full and rigorous governance over the Party, taken all-around measures to explore the strengthening of Party building, and gained abundant successful experience and achieved major outcomes, which must be included into the Party Constitution in a timely manner and therefore become the common will and rule of the whole Party.

The Party must firmly exercise self-supervision and practice strict self-governance in every respect, the revised Constitution says.

Opening the congress Oct. 18, Xi called corruption “the greatest threat” the Party faces.

The Party will work for the adoption of national anti-corruption legislation and create a corruption-reporting platform that covers both disciplinary inspection commissions and supervision agencies, he said.

Disciplinary authorities have investigated 440 officials, at or above the provincial or corps level, for corruption over the past five years, including 43 members and alternate members of the CPC Central Committee, as well as nine members of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), said Yang Xiaodu, deputy secretary of the CCDI, at a press conference on the sidelines of the 19th CPC National Congress.

‘Belt and Road’

The CPC has incorporated pushing for the development of the “Belt and Road” into its Constitution, according to the resolution.

The congress agreed to write into the Constitution, “following the principle of achieving shared growth through discussion and collaboration, and pursuing the Belt and Road Initiative,” according to the resolution.

Proposed by Xi in 2013, the Belt and Road Initiative aims to build a trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along and beyond the ancient Silk Road trade routes. It comprises the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road.

Military thinking

The CPC has included Xi’s military thinking and that the Party has “absolute” leadership over the armed forces into its Constitution.

According to the resolution, the CPC shall uphold its absolute leadership over the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) and other people’s armed forces and implement Xi’s thinking on strengthening the military, as part of the amendments to the CPC’s fundamental document for its over 89 million members.

The development of the PLA shall be strengthened by enhancing its political loyalty, through reform and technology and running it in accordance with the law, the resolution read.

The CPC shall build the people’s forces that obey the Party’s command — can fight and win — and maintain excellent conduct to ensure that the PLA accomplishes its missions and tasks in the new era, it said.

The inclusion of these statements into the Party Constitution will “help ensure the Party’s absolute leadership over the people’s armed forces, [and] modernize national defense and the military,” it said.

In addition, the amendment to the CPC Constitution also clarifies that the Chairperson of the Central Military Commission (CMC) assumes overall responsibility for the work of the commission, and that the CMC is responsible for Party work and political work in the armed forces.

This complies with the realistic requirement that the CMC fulfills its responsibility for Party self-supervision and self-governance after the military reform, the resolution said. (Xinhua)
