Shanghai establishes new supervisory commission in fight against corruption
Shanghai established its supervisory commission on Monday morning as a response to the national call to deepen reform of the country’s supervision mechanism in the fight against corruption.
As anti-graft organizations, supervisory commissions from the county level to the provincial level will work in collaboration with the Party discipline inspection commissions to supervise public servants overall and intensify supervision of top leaders.
Li Qiang, Party Secretary of Shanghai, unveiled the plaque of the city's new commission. He is also leader of the city’s team in charge of the pilot program for deepening reform.
The decision was made by the CPC Central Committee led by Xi Jinping in 2016. The city of Beijing and Shanxi and Zhejiang provinces were the first to set up the program last year, and it will go nationwide this year.
The establishment of the Shanghai Supervisory Commission was a key step for the city in deepening the reform of its supervision mechanism.
Party discipline inspection commissions and supervisory commissions at different levels in Shanghai will enhance integration of staff, organization and work to effectively perform their duties and to supervise, investigate and handle cases of corruption.
