China's top Party leaders will lead a new round of the ongoing anti-decadence campaign, which is now shifting targets to more low-level departments and officials.

Each of the seven Standing Committee members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee has been assigned a county to supervise in its anti-decadence progress. The measure is the latest round in a mass line campaign to improve Party and government officials' readiness to serve the people, and bring about changes to their work methods, according to an official statement released on Sunday.

Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, has been paired with Lankao county. Li Keqiang, Zhang Dejiang, Yu Zhengsheng, Liu Yunshan, Wang Qishan and Zhang Gaoli, are taking charge of supervision work in counties respectively in Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and provinces of Fujian, Yunnan, Shaanxi, Shandong and Jilin.

The new anti-decadence wave, scheduled to run from January to September, targets more low-level departments and leaderships. The first phase was focused on central and provincial-level departments, said the statement.

Grassroots CPC officials, namely those working in city, county, township and village-level governments are vital to curbing Party and government extravagance, as they are large in number and have more direct contact with the people, the statement continued.

Senior CPC leaders require Party officials to conduct self-examination while considering prominent problems of their localities and suggestions from the people.

CPC officials should take the lead to "leave the high-rises, step out of their mansions and reach out to the public and sit with them on the same bench to collect their suggestions," according to the statement.
