Comments Print Mail Large Medium SmallBEIJING — A Peoples Daily commentary to be published on Sunday stresses Chinas resolution to fight election scandal and maintain peoples confidence in the countrys fundamental political system — the system of peoples congress.
The Hunan provincial legislature said on Saturday that 56 elected deputies to the provincial peoples congress had offered bribes to 518 lawmakers of Hengyang municipal peoples congress and another 68 staff, with the total amount of money involved exceeding 110 million yuan (about $18.14 million).
The number of people involved in the election case is huge, the amount of money large, the matter serious, the effect pernicious, and this is a severe case of election violation via bribery, the commentary said.
Only by overhauling and seriously handling the case in accordance with laws and disciplines will win the heart of the people and maintain the peoples confidence in the countrys fundamental political system, added the commentary of the flagship newspaper of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
In the Hengyang case, some officials ignored Party disciplines and national laws, drew votes via bribery and received bribes, leading to the spread of violation of Party disciplines and laws, according to the commentary.
The provincial legislature has disqualified the 56 during a plenary meeting, while the county-level legislative body of Hengyang City has accepted the resignations of the 512 who took bribes.
The commentary said that to resolutely punish and handle corruption is a necessity for the CPC to rule by law, and the Hengyang case must arouse high alert and be dealt with severely.
A recent anti-corruption guideline issued by the CPC Central Committee has reiterated to tighten efforts to probe cases of law violation, and no matter in which field, anyone who violates the CPC disciplines and national laws should be investigated and harshly punished.
The Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee held in November said that China will improve its system of corruption punishment and prevention, build a clean government, and cultivate cadres with clean hands.
The commentary said that each CPC cadre should take the lead to abide by Party rules and national laws so as to maintain state authority and dignity.
The commentary also called on governments and officials at all levels to observe strict disciplines, strengthen system construction, strictly act by laws, maintain authority and dignity of the peoples congress system, improve Party building and fight corruption.8.03KRelated StoriesOver 500 Chinese lawmakers resign over fraudHot WordsAnti-graftMoon roverTerrorists killedDPRKMandelaCPC and reformChinese DreamADIZFight air pollutionTibetPhotoXiamen-Shenzhen High Speed Railway opens to trafficDigging for white goldNew York police graduates at induction ceremonyWhere are we going, dad end in laughter and tearsChunyun train tickets up for saleI want to have your companyChinaBusinessRegionalWorldSportsChunyun train tickets up for saleWinter wonderlandNPC to convene session on March 5China bans 63 batches of imported foodChunyun train tickets up for saleChinas rails mileage tops 100,000 kmWinter wonderlandLi drops in to help realize home dreamEx-officers sentenced in mans deathBeijing must brace for baby boomGovt issues holiday warningChina allows more second childLuxury market faces smarter consumersVirtual era opening up for telecom users, firmsODI on track to outstrip FDICabinet to protect small investorsTop auditor to keep watch on debtNov wheat imports up 721%China to be worlds largest economyGyrating rates to be new normalIndustrial companies profits see sharp dropEquipment makers look westLanzhou zone to be inland growth engineIdeas to boost Guangzhou e-commerce sectorWinter travels in Anhui are colorful and enjoyableChina Coal Market Forum and Trade Fair 2014Foreigners show passion for Suzhou winter wineJinchengs appeal is carefully craftedSnowy Mount WutaiFirst snowfall blankets Kanas scenic areaXinjiang rescue team returns from the PhilippinesBeijing hosts DEF 2013Luxury exhibition wraps up in BeijingTaiyuans task to be modern metro areaMount WutaiJumei opens store in central BeijingTurkish protesters clash with policeNew York police graduates at induction ceremonyTurkish protesters clash with policeFour killed, scores wounded in clashes in EgyptChinese man saved in SW NorwayTCM is just what the doctor orderedS Korea develops air defense vehicleS.
