BEIJING, June 22 (Xinhua) -- Wang Qishan, chief of the discipline watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has urged new local anti-graft agencies to maintain a good political ecology.
Wang, head of the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, made the remarks during an inspection tour from Tuesday to Thursday in southwest China's Guizhou Province.
Wang compared supervisory officials to "forest rangers" in protecting political ecology before the 19th CPC National Congress later this year.
At a symposium attended by local anti-graft officials, Wang urged for improved political consciousness and full implementation of the "four comprehensives," a four-pronged strategy to achieve a moderately prosperous society, deepen reform, advance rule of law and govern the Party strictly.
Anti-graft officials should take concrete measures to govern the Party in combination with local reality and exercise self-discipline within the Party and in governing the CPC, Wang said.
Wang called on officials to solve problems in their own regions and know the situation of both individuals and groups so as to maintain a good political ecology.
Wang reiterated the role of "a key few" officials, good selection and appointment of cadres, accountability and early plans on local discipline inspections.
He also asked local authorities to combine intra-Party supervision with public supervision to realize self-purifying and self-reform, and urged them to receive petitioners in person.
