BEIJING - Vice President Xi Jinping Sunday called for better organization construction of the Communist Party of China (CPC)to prepare for the Party's 18th National Congress scheduled next year.
Xi, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remarks while meeting heads of the Party's provincial-level organization departments.
Xi said comprehensive criteria should be adopted to select and promote competent officials in ongoing changing term of office of the CPC's local committees.
During the evaluation on officials to be promoted, the Party committees should give full play to democracy by combining public opinions with centralized decisions, Xi said.
The Party's local committees should avoid simply regarding economic aggregate and growth rate of an administrative region as the main parameter to evaluate an official's political achievements, he said.
As many young cadres will take office in leading posts of the Party's local committees, it's necessary to enhance education on them for political loyalty, anti-corruption and leadership capacity, the official said.
Xi, also a member of the CPC Central Committee's Secretariat, urged to strengthen the Party's organization construction among grassroots units to better serve improving people's livelihood and recruiting more Party members among young workers and farmers.
