BEIJING -- China's top graft-buster Wang Qishan has vowed to further tighten the screw of regulations in the fight against corruption in 2016.
Wang's remarks, part of his speech at the sixth plenary session of the 18th Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) on Jan. 12, was made public on Sunday.
As the new rules on clean governance and the disciplinary regulation have taken effect, party organizations must defend and implement them in a manner like "the eyes tolerate no sand", said Wang, head of CCDI.
He said an intra-party supervision regulation, which was formulated in 2003, should be revised to summarize the experience of the CPC governing itself since the 18th National Congress of the CPC.
The relevant administrative supervision law, which monitors government officials, will also be revised, he added.
Further underlining the significance of CPC's responsibility, Wang said an intra-party accountability regulation will be formulated to hold accountable those who have poorly implemented party policies, who have neglected their duty in managing the party, who have selected and promoted the wrong officials and who have failed to detect problems in the party.
Chinese leaders often highlight the role of regulations in the sweeping anti-corruption drive. President Xi Jinping has vowed to "fasten the cage of regulations" to curb corruption.
The new disciplinary regulation, which even lists playing golf as an violation, is deemed to be the strictest in party history.
