China to Launch Stringent New Anti-corruption System in Beijing
« on: December 29, 2016, 09:32:42 PM »

China says it will soon launch a powerful anti-corruption system in the capital city of Beijing and the provinces of Shanxi and Zhejiang.

Officials say the new scheme is designed to be more independent, with supervision commissions to oversee public officeholders, including within the judicial system.

Some observers praise the establishment of the new scheme, calling it a positive step toward a more integrated and autonomous watchdog system. Others doubt if the commission can be independent of the party and worry that with its expansive powers it may lead to more corruption.

“In China, almost more than 98 percent of comrade leaders or public officeholders are [Communist] party members. So, it’s common in China that the party always overrides the government to have a full grip on power,” Liao Ran, senior program coordinator of Transparency International, told VOA.

The new scheme has more to do with the party’s continued rule in China than Chinese President Xi Jinping’s own grip of power, the Oslo, Norway-based observer added, dismissing concerns that the move was connected to power struggles within the party.
