The General Office of the CPC Central Committee yesterday issued a notice calling for full implementation of the supervision and admonishment rules governing officials' honesty and 'clean handling' of their affairs, which was jointly put together by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee.
According to the supervisory rules, CPC officials who fail to strictly implement the political disciplines, carry out the Party's various policies and decisions as well as those who are inconsistent in their style of work or corrupt would be admonished.
The rules show that 'admonishment talks' will be held with those who have problems of various kinds which are prohibited by the Central Commission for Disciplines Inspection and the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee.
Officials involved in 'admonishment talks' will be allowed to explain themselves and those who are confirmed as having violated the Party's disciplines will be punished. Under the rules the offenders' explanation should be listened to carefully -- their problems pointed out and ways in which they could be corrected identified.
The move was aimed at strengthening the routine supervision and education of CPC officials at various levels, the Notice said.
Meanwhile, another new regulation was also issued by CPC Central Committee on Sunday. According to the regulation CPC officials above the county-level must report on their work performance in the middle of their terms and a year prior to the end.
The work performance should include the learning of Deng Xiaoping Theory, the thoughts of "Three Represents" and the concept of scientific development and CPC policies.
It should also include the progress they've made in undertaking important tasks and building new leading groups. The evaluations also have to outline problems and identify the corrective measures being taken, the regulation states. The evaluations should also seek out public opinion on the performance of the official's work group.
The organizers should submit a summation of their work reports to higher committees, the regulation states.
At all levels discipline inspection departments and personnel must fortify their supervision and instruction of the reports to their junior leading groups by hearing the reports and organizing democratic evaluations, according to the regulation.
