Slackers in the Government Will be Held Accountable

On April 24, China Discipline and Inspection Daily, the official publication of Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), published a commentary warning that officials who slack off will be dealt with seriously. The commentary stated that the intensification of the anti-corruption campaign is deterring officials from engaging in the abuse of power. However, many officials continue to take no, slow, or illegal actions when they are expected to perform their official duties. The harm these "lazy government officials" bring is more serious than corruption. The commentary acknowledged that slacking off, omissions, and non-performance are increasingly rampant. It stated that it is better to hold someone accountable once than to motivate him a thousand times.
