The Beijing News:
On July 17, the CCP Municipal Commission for Disciplinary Inspections in Beijing announced through its Wechat account. It revealed the semi-annual statistics on disciplinary actions against the party members. Beijing Commission had so far penalized 221 CCP members for violating the Eight Directives. It included six directors, 56 division chiefs, and 150 section leaders (Yang).
Chairman Xi Jinping convened the CCP central committee on December 4, 2012. He declared eight detectives to regulate the conducts of the party members:
1. All senior party deputies should pay regular visits to the grassroots. They should gather facts and address concerns from ordinary citizens.
2. All communist organizations should simplify meeting protocols and reduce meeting frequencies.
3. All communist organizations should streamline the reporting process.
4. All senior party deputies should standardize foreign visiting protocols. They should regulate the accompanying personnel and transportation. They should not organize airport farewell ceremonies with oversea Chinese nationals.
5. All senior CCP officials should update the security routine, including reducing traffic control. Road closures or site clearing would disturb the Chinese people.
6. The media should improve reporting on senior CCP officials. The reporting should be based on news values and social impacts.
7. No CCP members could make publications without the consent from the CCP central committee.
8. The CCP senior officials should promote probity. They should observe the regulations on housing, government vehicles, and other work-life benefits. (中央八项规定)
【 Review 】
Since 2012, “Xitler”(Xi Jinping) has been consolidating the party and the government. He dedicated the Eight Directives to cast an illusion that the CCP could be closer to the Chinese people.
His directives attempted to reverse the distancing relationship between the CCP and the Chinese. Yet, the CCP exploited arbitrary enforcement to further political needs. The Commission for Disciplinary Inspections became a powerful tool to address internal conflicts. It received no external supervision. Further, it shielded the entire disciplinary investigations and prosecutions process from the public.
The Eight Directives intimidated the ordinary party members. It coerced their submissions to the party leadership. 73% of the punishment of the Beijing Commission were regular communist party members.
The CCP sustained its dominance over China for 71 years through deceptions and oppression. Career advancement and professional achievements favored CCP membership holders. Ordinary CCP members were being held hostage and leveraged for power struggles. Abolishing the Communist Party system was the only answer to address all internal conflicts.
