The disciplinary watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC) exposed 153 relating to breaches of the eight-point anti-bureaucracy and formalism guidelines from Aug. 18 to 24.

The cases were uncovered by discipline inspectors in 29 provincial-level regions, the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a weekly report on its website on Monday.

The violations include the use of public funds for high-end entertainment activities and tourism, private use of official cars, lavish spending at weddings and funerals, illegal subsistence, drunk drive and acceptance of festival gifts.

The website opened a new section for reporting public funds for moon cakes upon the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival.

Also on Monday, the website reported five violations of the rule on construction of government buildings, with relevant cadres given punishment.

The "eight-point" anti-bureaucracy and formalism rules were introduced by the CPC top leadership in December 2012. They ordered CPC officials to reduce pomp, ceremony, bureaucratic visits and meetings.

From Aug. 4 to 18, the website reported more than 300 violations.
