BEIJING - Senior leader Liu Yunshan on Sunday urged to practise transparent and fair cadre selection and firmly reject illicit canvassing and vote-buying.

The organization departments at all levels should select officials with good work styles through a system of sound framework, said Liu, a newly elected member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, at a meeting on official's style building.

Nepotism, bribery at election and other illicit practices in official selection should be firmly resisted, and those who are involved in such corruption will be relentlessly punished, Liu said.

Liu asked officials to take the lead to implement the "eight requirements" made by the new top CPC leadership to reject extravagance, bureaucracy.

In a meeting of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee on December 4, senior officials agreed on the requirements including simplified receptions for officials' visits, shortened official meetings and fewer traffic controls arranged for senior leaders.

The implementation of these requirements can not be stayed in just "yelling slogans," urged Liu, "concrete measures of operation must be in place."

The improvement of officials' work styles should not be evaluated by officials themselves, said Liu, adding the people's supervision and evaluation are needed, and their satisfaction is the standard of evaluation.
