Decision of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party on establishing Central and local Commissions for Discipline Inspection

Decision of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party on establishing Central and local Commissions for Discipline Inspection 

9 November 1949

1. Our Party has already become the ruling Party in the entire nation; Democratic United Governments at all levels have been or will be established; matters on which the Party cooperates with persons outside the Party are increasing day after day. To better enforce the Party's political line and each concrete policy; guard secret information of the state and the Party; strengthen the Party organization and discipline; keep close links with the masses; defeat bureaucratism; guarantee the correct implementation of all resolutions of the Party, it is decided to establish central and local Commissions for Discipline Inspection.

2. The tasks, functions and powers of central and local Commissions for Discipline Inspection of the Party are:

a) inspect the conducts of all departments directly controlled by the Centre,  Party organizations at all levels, Party cadres and Party members that contravene Party discipline.

b) accept, examine and decide sanctions on departments directly controlled by the Centre, Party organizations at all levels and Party members that contravene Party discipline; or remove their sanctions. 

c) strengthen discipline education within the Party, so Party members and cadres strictly observe Party discipline, carry out Party resolutions and government ordinances (faling), to realize the unity and centralization of the entire Party.

3. The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection works under the leadership of the Central Political Office. By the Centre's decision, it is composed by eleven persons: Zhu De, Wang Congwu, An Ziwen, Liu Lantao, Xie Juezai, Li Baohua, Liu Jingfan, Xue Muqiao, Liang Hua, Feng Naichao. Comrade Zhu De is appointed as its secretary, Wang Congwu, An Ziwen are appointed as its deputy secretaries.

4. The members of Party Commissions for Discipline Inspections of all Central bureaus, sub-bureaus, provincial committees, area Party committees, city committees, prefectural committees, county committees are approved by Party committees at the second-higher level upon presentation of a list of names by the Party committee at their respective level, and carry out work under the guidance of their Party committees. Party Commissions for Discipline Inspection at the next-higher level have the power to change or cancel decisions by lower-level Party Commissions for Discipline Inspection.


5. Central and local Party Commissions for Discipline Inspection must set up permanent work institutions, establish daily work, and stipulate their own detailed work rules.

A Short Response to a Reader

This post provides a short and simple response to a question I received about my short essay "民法的一般原则、党组以及“一带一路”  (available here for those who may like to read it in Chinese, and here for those who may like to read it in English). The question was received on the "法律与国际事务学会" Wechat group, following the circulation of this short essay on Chinese-language internet groups and websites. 

I am publishing my short and simple reply here because the question may be of interest to persons other than the reader who asked it (and whom shall remain anonymous). Also, my essay was written for the sole purpose of academic research and communication therefore, there is no reason why I should provide my answer within the 'four walls' of a social media group.
Question: In your commentary, you wrote “in 1957, Liu Shaoqi suggested to use the words ‘militant bastions’ in article 19 of the Constitution of the CPC to refer to the function of primary organizations, rather than to their …

Short Essay: 民法的一般原则、党组以及“一带一路”

The following short essay was produced as part of a series of commentaries on the General Provisions of Civil Law authored for the Chinese and Western public. It examines how the General Provisions of Civil Law can contribute to the construction of a transnational rule of law framework for the Belt and Road Initiative. In the essay, I discuss the General Provisions of Civil Law in relation to the legal status of Party groups in SOEs, private enterprises, and social organizations (including NGOs and Foundations) operating in China and in Western countries. My most heartfelt thanks go to Luo Qiyue and Huang Linlin, for their outstanding translation of my essay. 




民法的一般原则、党组以及“一带一路” 作者:Flora Sapio1

自党的十八大以来,国家采取了数个措施来增强党在国有企业、私有企业和社会组织中的权威。2013年《中央党内法规制定工作五年规划纲要(2013—2017年)》第二条要求规范和完善党组工作制度,并且制定有关党组工作的党内法规。2014年党的十八届三中全会亦提出要加强建设以提供服务,学习及创新为导向的党组。
为了应对经济发展所提出的一系列全新需求,强化党组是必不可少的。这些新的需求包括加强对公司的内部审计、监督公司高层以及员工行为的合法性、寻找多种途径解决劳动纠纷以及更好地向公众提供公共服务等。
为了使得党组在上述及其他领域发挥根本性作用,党的十八届中央委员会创建了一个法律框架来规范党组构成及其活动。…
