BEIJING, Jan. 16 (Xinhua) -- The Organization Department of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee has pledged more scientific measures to select leading officials for Party and government departments.
With the revised regulation on selection and appointment of leading officials of Party and government agencies, the nation's official selection system will be honed to be scientific, effective and easy to put into practice, said a statement issued by the department on Thursday.
