The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) website posted an article titled, “Why the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and Ministry of Supervision combined.” According to the article, the decision was part of the national discipline inspection system’s reform. Both agencies will be working at the same location to fulfill discipline inspection and supervision functions. They are under one agency structure but with two separate names. A party branch office will not be set up at the combined site. The article stated that the purpose of the reform is to strengthen the party’s leadership of its anti-corruption effort and to consolidate administrative supervision, corruption prevention, and the anti-corruption effort in the procuratorate organs and abuse prevention forces. The consolidation will effectively combine both party enforcement and the national legal enforcement effort so that each work unit has members from the discipline inspection unit as well as the procuratorate branch.
