BEIJING - The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) on Friday called for enhanced anti-corruption efforts following the expulsion of the commission's former deputy director Liu Tienan from the Communist Party of China (CPC).
Liu, former deputy director of the NDRC and former chief of the National Energy Administration, was expelled from the CPC and removed from public office last week for breaking the law and violating discipline.
Party members who are in the NDRC should learn from Liu's case, said Xu Shaoshi, head of the NDRC.
"The National Development and Reform Commission should seriously listen to criticism and advice from all walks of life and draw lessons from Liu Tienan's case," said Liu Xiaobin, a senior disciplinary official on the commission.
Liu said NDRC officials should accept public supervision, adding that the commission will step up anti-corruption efforts and boost transparency.
