CPC urges members to obey its rules

Xinhua, October 29, 2015 Adjust font size:

The Communist Party of China (CPC) has urged its members to abide by new Party rules.

The CPC Central Committee adopted updated rules on clean governance and sanctions for those who violate the Party code of conduct on Oct. 12, as the old ones were deemed outdated since the launch of the anti-corruption drive.

The rules are necessary because the CPC is suffering from weak leadership and slack discipline among its members, said the General Office of the CPC Central Committee in a statement on Wednesday.

The revised rules have been dubbed by many to be the most comprehensive and strictest since the opening up and reform drive began. For the first time, they explicitly list extravagant eating and drinking and playing golf as violations.

Discipline inspection departments should intensify supervision within the CPC and harshly punish those who violate the code of conduct, said the general office.
