Party ready to expel those who do not make decisions or create divisions

The Central Committee will punish those who tarnish the image of the Party with their behavior, and even those who seek to divide it with different factions. A fierce battle between Xi Jinping, the Shanghai gang and the Communist Youth League.


Beijing (AsiaNews / Agencies) - The Chinese Communist Party today issued new rules under which executives can be charged with mismanagement, corruption, negligence, breach of austerity. In an effort to boost popular consensus of its leaders – at a low point -  officials will be punished for bad or poor leadership and lack of loyalty to the Party. The rules will apply to all levels of the organization.

Since becoming Secretary General of the Party, in 2012, Xi Jinping has taken a very tough stance against corruption and waste, trying to stop the avalanche of criticism accusing the members of the leadership of living like kings off corruption and bribes .

The new rules are even more stringent: the Central Committee will punish not only those who tarnish the image of the Party with their behavior, but also those who seek to divide the organization with different factions. The penalties include resignation from office and expulsion from the Party.

Since coming to power, Xi Jinping (to the foreground in photo) has been locked in a bitter struggle with the various factions within the Party, especially the Shanghai gang, headed by former president Jiang Zemin (center, in the photo), and the Communist Youth League, headed by his predecessor Hu Jintao (left in the photo).
