China’s ruling Communist Party has issued new rules to push its fight against deeply entrenched corruption, telling senior officials to travel “without pomp”, not to have too many staff and not take too many holidays.
The party has already cracked down on what it terms extravagance, hedonism and bureaucratism. The new rules, issued late on Wednesday, further formalise practices and guidelines already generally in effect.
Top officials should “travel without pomp, minimise impact on public life, and not have vehicles exceeding the set standards”, say the rules, which were released by the official Xinhua news agency.
Holidays should be limited and properly approved, the “right” number of staff should be employed, relatives and employees must be “strictly constrained” and top officials should not delay leaving their offices on retirement, state the rule.
