What new measures has the fourth plenary session proposed to uphold and improve the Party and state oversight systems and strengthen supervision of public servants? Thanks.

Xu Lin:

Mr. Jiang Jinquan will answer this question.

Jiang Jinquan:

Thanks for your question. It is a common and worldwide topic to strengthen checks on and oversight over the distribution and exercise of power to ensure it is not abused. It is also a key element of state governance. This session has proposed three requirements for upholding and improving the Party and state oversight systems and strengthening full-coverage supervision of all public servants.

First, improving the Party and state oversight systems. This work is twofold. First, we will coordinate their respective supervisory systems. In order to realize the full-coverage supervision of public servants, we have established the National Supervisory Commission working together with the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI). Second, we will coordinate all the existing supervisory mechanisms, such as discipline inspection, inspection tour, and dispatch of officials to other departments for supervision. In addition, we will promote coordination of various supervisory institutions including intra-Party supervision, supervision by people's congresses, democratic and judicial supervision. In this way, we will put in place a close-knit supervisory network that features overall Party leadership, full coverage, authority and efficiency. 

Second, improving checks on the distribution and exercise of power. Power must be supervised and the supervision should focus on the distribution and exercise of power. In order to prevent any abuse of power, this session made a series of decisions to ensure that power and responsibility are law-based, transparent and interdependent.

Third, building a system that ensures officials do not dare, cannot and have no desire to engage in corrupt practices. It is clear that corruption entails the use of power to make personal gains and pursue private interests. To curb corruption, we must impose checks and supervision on the exercise of power. It is in the nature of the CPC and the socialist country at large to unswervingly oppose corruption. It is also the firm political position that the CPC will follow through on its decisions. This session builds on the overwhelming success in anti-corruption work and attaches high importance to addressing both the symptoms and root causes of corruption. In a word, we will continue to apply rigorous standards and impose severe punishments, and maintain full pressure on corruption to create a political atmosphere in which officials do not dare to become corrupt. We will improve various checks and supervision systems to build a mechanism in which officials cannot engage in corrupt acts, offering an institutionalized solution. We will advance education campaigns on a theme of "staying true to our founding missions" to lay a solid ideological foundation for officials to harbor no desire to engage in corrupt acts. 

This session has proposed a series of major measures in the above three aspects. We believe that we will obtain new and greater achievements in strengthening supervision and curbing corruption through the implementation of the spirit of this session.
