BEIJING — A new directive was published on Oct 30 to deepen reforms and enhance efficiency of accredited agencies of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).
According to the directive issued by the General Office of CPC Central Committee, the accredited agencies are under the direct leadership and unified management of CCDI and National Supervisory Commission (NSC) that shares offices and staff with the CCDI.
They will not only enforce Party discipline but also supervise all State functionaries within their jurisdiction, the document said.
Their priority is to oversee the implementation of the Party Constitution and disciplinary rules, the Constitution and laws and the Party’s policies, as well as to ensure the smooth delivery of policies and orders of the CPC Central Committee.
Accredited disciplinary and supervisory agencies are asked to enhance coordination with Party committees of the departments where they are stationed, and streamline their investigative work.
The directive also stressed that staff of accredited agencies should be fully aware of their political duties and remain loyal, clean and responsible.
According to the CPC Constitution, the Party’s central and local commissions for discipline inspection shall accredit discipline inspection teams to all the Party and state organs at the corresponding level.
