Wang Qishan Issued Warning to Party Officials on Self Discipline

Wang Qishan, Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, spoke at the 4th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection which was held in Beijing on October 25. Wang pointed out that some party officials do not study and understand the law. Wang said, “They neglect the law and are shameless and fearless.” Wang stressed that, the higher the rank the party officials have, the more authoritative power they have. Therefore they should be more fearful and focus on self-discipline. On October 26, Xinhua published a commentary in which it further endorsed Wang’s talk. It then reiterated that “the way the Party is managed and developed matters not just to Party’s legality and survival, but to the fate of the country and its people as well.”
