BEIJING, Dec. 31 (Xinhua) -- The Communist Party of China (CPC) will make more efforts to wean its members away from extravagance, bureaucratic behaviors and abuse of power as part of an anti-graft drive in the new year.
The move is part of the 2013 anti-graft plan as outlined in a report delivered by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) in a meeting on Monday.
The meeting, held by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, was presided over by Xi Jinping, general secretary of CPC Central Committee.
A statement after the meeting read, "The fight against corruption is still arduous under the new circumstances, and a small number of Party members have a weak sense of responsibility."
It noted formalism, bureaucratism and extravagance among some officials' work style.
The statement urged the entire Party to strengthen "a sense of hardship, risk and responsibility," exert more efforts to handle corruption and prevent corruptive behaviors from spreading.
Stressing equal attention to prevention and punishment, the statement called on all CPC departments to intensify supervision of officials' adherence to various disciplines as well as Party policies and decisions.
The statement also urged limits and supervision of officials' power and campaigns to promote a clean work style at grassroots levels.
It was agreed at the meeting that the Second Plenary Session of the 18th CCDI will be held in January, said the statement.
