The Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee has issued a circular on internal supervision and inspection.
The major task of the supervision and inspection is to ensure implementation of Party's theory, line and policy as well as the CPC Central Committee's decisions, according to the circular published on June 5.
Local Party committees should organize genuinely effective supervision and inspection and ensure the thorough implementation of CPC Central Committee's decisions and policies, it said.
They should improve on-the-spot inspections and conduct investigations in private, the circular said.
The inspection results may be publicized on news media and leading officials of departments and work units where prominent problems are found will be given verbal warning.
Those who interfere in supervision and inspection will be punished, and supervisors and inspectors themselves will be held accountable for negligence of duty, according to the circular.
