Dangers & measures

The CPC has grown from an over 50-member revolutionary Party to an 80-million-strong political party ruling the world's most populous country over the past 90-plus years.

The Party says it sticks to the "mass line," or furthering ties with the people, as its fundamental work guideline during the process.

However, it is a fact that there are recurring practices involving trading power for personal benefits by Party and government officials.

Party leaders have warned that the whole Party is confronted with increasingly grave dangers of lacking in drive, incompetence, being out of touch with the people, corruption and other misconduct.

The Party's new leadership headed by Xi Jinping since taking office late last year have introduced an eight-point rule on busting bureaucratism and extravagant styles among officials.

In June, the Party launched a year-long "mass line" campaign to clean up undesirable work styles among officials and further ties with the masses.

The measures are intended to not only target such problems as extravagant styles that need to be tackled urgently, but also help consolidate Party members' ideological belief of serving the people, according to analysts.

Discussions on comprehensively deepening reforms will top the agenda of the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee scheduled for November, according to last week's meeting of Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.

Xin Ming believed that reforms will bring an improved system and reduce the breeding soil of corruption, thus facilitating the corruption fight.
