People’s Daily Criticized Guanxi in Relationships between Leaders and Their Subordinates

China Review News republished an article that People’s Daily had originally published. It criticized the current tendency of “Guanxi” or interpersonal relationships between leaders and their subordinates, calling them "twisted relationships.” The article said that such relationships are heavily “contaminated” with various kinds of “implicit rules” and “personal favoritism.” It listed examples of different types of these relationships and stated that all Party members should work on themselves to improve their interpersonal relationships and make them more normal, pure, and less complicated.
