Senior Chinese leader He Guoqiang has urged discipline inspection organizations at all levels to grasp the "essence" of three newly-issued regulations to prevent corruption from the very start.
These regulations reflect the attention the central government pays to anti-graft work. Discipline inspection organizations at all levels should carefully study them and grasp the essence of the rules, He said at a meeting for discipline officials held here on Monday and Tuesday.
He, who is a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, said these regulations constitute a major move in improving the legal framework for anti-corruption work.
The three regulations involve inspection tours to learn about the performance of leading local officials, punishment of wrong-doing Party and government leaders, and tackling illegal practices in construction projects.
He urged discipline inspection organizations at all levels to carefully review the work in the first half of 2009 and make detailed plans for the future.
