“We must continue to rid ourselves of any virus that erodes the Party’s fabric, make great efforts to foster a healthy political environment of integrity, and generate waves of positive energy throughout our Party,” Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, said.
“Exercising full and rigorous governance over the Party is a journey to which there is no end. We should never entertain the idea of taking a breather or halting our steps,” he said.
2. Oct 27, the new Political Bureau’s first meeting
The 25-member Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee reviewed two documents. One was about strengthening the Party’s unified leadership, while the other was about revisions to details of rules on implementing the Party’s eight-point frugality code.
