The Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China has called for the Party's senior officials to remain enterprising, assume their political responsibilities and strictly uphold clean governance and self-discipline in a meeting held on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The meeting, chaired by Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, underlined the importance of bureau members actively coping with new situations and new challenges and making their utmost efforts to promote steady growth, advance reform, make structural adjustments, improve living standards and guard against risk.

It also stressed the importance of maintaining the work style of the Party's senior officials. Members of the political bureau should practice clean governance and discipline over themselves as well as their family members and staff, according to a statement released after the meeting.

They should serve as the role model for Party members to resolutely prevent and oppose thoughts and cases of seeking privileges and guard against any form of formalism and bureaucracy, it said.

The members of the bureau should also enhance their political responsibilities, maintain their political orientation, enhance their political capacities and resolutely fight against those that cause damage to the Party's political discipline and rules, it said.

Xi said at the meeting that members of the political bureau should strictly practice the eight-point frugality rules of the Party and ensure that the rules are implemented well in the areas in which the members are in charge.

He also stressed the importance of upholding democratic centralism, which is the Party's fundamental organizing principle and leadership mechanism.

To ensure good governance of the Party and the country, it is important to learn information from all areas, which, he said, must be gathered through democracy within the Party and Party organizations and officials extensively hearing the people's voices and gathering their opinions.

Party officials should enhance their attainment of democracy as a kind of leadership capacity and an art of leadership, he said, adding that they should absorb truthful opinions from various sides with a broad mind and gather different voices.

The practice of democratic centralism is the joint political responsibility of the Party, and officials at various levels, especially members of the political bureau, should take the leading role, he said.
