To continue the fight against hedonism, extravagance, and other improprieties
Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, emphasized that the opposition style cannot be stopped. Xi made the remarks in a directive issued on Monday in response to a Xinhua article about the new form of misconduct.
President Xi Jinping, who heads the Central Military Commission, said the new misconduct was essentially an old problem.
In the directive, Xi warned of the stubbornness and recurrence of bad work styles — formalism, bureaucracy, hedonism and extravagance.
“The efforts to rectify this kind of misconduct cannot be stopped, and the construction of the party’s work style cannot be stopped,” Xi said.
Xi Jinping asked the party and government departments in all regions and departments to carefully examine their performance of duties and take practical measures to rectify existing problems, especially prominent problems such as excessive propaganda and insufficient implementation.
He also asked leading cadres at all levels to take the lead in propaganda work.
In the upcoming Chinese Communist Party’s “never forget the original heart” campaign, the practice of formality for the sake of form should also be strictly avoided, Xi said.
The Xinhua News Agency article pointed out that at present, great achievements have been made in building a clean and honest Party style, but some cadres are perfunctory in their investigation and inspection work, and problems still exist. Some party and government organs and their staff pretend to care about the masses and do not do actual work of serving the people.
The article pointed out that there are also issues such as local governments working for the attention of higher officials rather than for the satisfaction of the people.
It pointed out that some cadres evaded responsibility and did not act, were lazy, double-faced, and duplicity.
The General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China issued a notice requesting all party and government agencies to study and implement the important instructions of General Secretary Xi Jinping.
It is required to carefully investigate new bad styles, resolutely correct them, and make solid improvements.
The notice emphasized that the upcoming New Year’s Day and Spring Festival period will be an important node in the struggle, requiring the authorities to resolutely prevent the return of misconduct, and to consolidate and develop the progress of the eight central decisions. Improve party style and government style.
