Guangming Daily recently reported on the progress that the Communist Party’s Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) team leaders made after they had been sent, in late March, to co-locate with seven key central Party and government departments. The seven central departments are the General Office of the CPC Central Committee, the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee, the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, the Central United Front Work Department, the National People’s Congress organs, the General Office of the State Council, and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
The relationship between the CCDI team and the department with which it co-located is one between the supervisor and supervisee. The CCDI team engages in no business other than fulfilling its oversight responsibilities. These teams are to be fully staffed by end of June. The focus of the CCDI work is department leaders, middle level cadres, and division chiefs. Activities so far have included distributing copies of the Party’s Charter, establishing the Party’s local CCDI branch, and requesting that grievance complaints involving officials be sent to the CCDI team within three days of receipt. A CCDI team will be held accountable if there are new violations involving division chiefs or above and if the CCDI team failed to discover the violation or to investigate.
