LI QINGGUI, THE FORMER PARTY CHIEF of Xinxiang in Central China's Henan province, recently lost his position due to his failure to supervise his subordinates as three department-level officials under his leadership were punished for corruption. The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Party, the top anti-corruption watchdog, posted details of his case on its website. Comments:

People used to say Party chiefs were in a safe position because even if whole offices under their leadership were found to be corrupt they would not be punished. The top leadership has realized this and Wang Qishan, head of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, has said leaders will be punished if they neglect their subordinates' corruption.
