CPC leader stresses inner-Party supervision
Wu Guanzheng, a senior leader of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has called on all Party members to thoroughly study and implement its first ever inner-Party supervision regulations made public recently.

Wu said the regulations underlined the important role of institution building for inner-Party supervision and also are vital to guarantee the effect of the supervision.
Wu, also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, said the regulations stress the need for members to abide by both the Party's disciplines and the law.
No organization or individual will be allowed to enjoy privileges above the Constitution and the law, said Wu.
