BEIJING, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- A key meeting of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has insisted that Party discipline should be thoroughly enforced with no exceptions made for any organizations or members.
Every individual or organization is equal before Party discipline and none enjoys any prerogatives, according to a statement released on Thursday after the sixth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee.
The CPC opposes any act of duplicity or double-dealing, and it will not tolerate deception, exaggeration, hiding the truth, or reporting only good news while holding back the bad, the statement said.
The meeting also stressed that publicity regarding leaders should be based purely on facts and that boasting should be banned.
Leading bodies or officials are prohibited from condoning, abetting, implying or forcing lies from their subordinates under any pretext, the statement said, adding that flattery should be weeded out of the CPC.
