China's top anti-graft body has reformed its structure to transfer more than 100 officials to disciplinary posts as part of efforts to enhance supervision, an official said on Wednesday.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China has increased its number of disciplinary supervision divisions from 10 to 12, with each division having 30 anti-corruption officials, said Chen Wenqing, deputy secretary of the commission.

Chen said during an online interview on Wednesday morning that the commission will focus more on its main task of fighting corruption.

Five of the disciplinary supervision divisions will deal with corrupt cases involving central ministries, State-owned enterprises and central public institutes, and the other seven will handle graft cases at provincial and municipal governments, Chen said.

On Monday, the commission said on its official website that it has carried out reform to close some administrative offices and transfer their staff members to disciplinary posts.

The commission has also set up a new division to supervise anti-graft officials to prevent them from corruption.

The reform did not include increasing the number of its staff, according to the commission.
