BEIJING - A senior official with the Communist Party of China (CPC) has pledged to deepen reform of the Party's discipline supervision system, according to a statement released on Monday.
Wang Qishan, secretary of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), made the remarks while delivering a work report at the third plenary session of the commission on January 13.
The Party will streamline its discipline inspection system by granting more power to superior discipline inspection agencies, Wang said.
He called for a system which requires local discipline inspection agencies to give regular reports on their work to inspection agencies of their superior level.
Currently, each local discipline inspection agency is under the dual leadership of the CPC committee at the same level and the inspection agency of a superior level.
Local discipline inspection agencies should report to both the CPC committee at the same level and the inspection agency of its superior level at the same time when investigating cases, said the statement.
The CPC will also sharpen the efficiency of inspectors dispatched to provincial governments, big state-owned enterprises and public institutions to discover malpractice and harmful work styles, it said.
Last year, 10 teams of inspectors visited 20 provincial governments, big state-owned enterprises and public institutions, and came back with important information that helped bring down a number of corrupt officials.
The CCDI will accredit more inspection agencies to the Party and state organs at the central level, Wang said.
