Top Chinese leader vows to fight against corruption

Jan 22 2013, 2:25am CST | by

Beijing, Jan 22 (IANS) China's next president Xi Jinping Tuesday vowed to fight against corruption and punish every corrupt official so as to earn the trust of the people.

Beijing, Jan 22 — China's next president Xi Jinping Tuesday vowed to fight against corruption and punish every corrupt official so as to earn the trust of the people.

At a meeting of the disciplinary watchdog of the Communist Party of China (CPC), Xi, also the newly-elected CPC central committee general secretary, said anti-corruption efforts must be consistent and never slacken, Xinhua reported.

He stressed on fighting corruption in a comprehensive way, address both its symptoms and root cause and combine punishment with prevention.

He urged people to fight for clean governance.

"Power should be reined within the cage of regulations," said Xi as he ordered restraint and supervision on the use of power.

He said a disciplinary and prevention mechanism should be set up to ensure that people do not dare to and are not able to or can not easily commit corruption.

"We must not relax the use of penalties if we want to rule party members strictly," he said.

HONG KONG — Student leaders of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests warned that if the territory’s top official doesn’t resign by Thursday they will step up their actions, including occupying several important government buildings. By raising the stakes in the standoff, the protesters are risking another round of confrontation with police, who are unlikely to allow government buildings to be stormed. It also puts pressure on the Chinese government, which so far has said little bey ...

Understanding China’s Hard Line on Hong Kong

Oct 1 2014 8:38am CDT | Source: Harvard Business Review

When Chinese students first took to the streets of Beijing in April 1989 — initially to mourn the death of reformist former Premier Hu Yaobang, then to protest for more democracy — nobody in the Chinese leadership seems to have been planning for it end with tanks rolling into Tiananmen Square. As Ezra P. Vogel tells it in his painfully long but hugely informative biography Deng Xiaoping and the Transformation of China — which I read on trains and planes and ...

Thousands of protesters have flooded into the heart of central Hong Kong over recent days to demonstrate against the Beijing government's plans to phase out the semi-autonomous province's democratic elections by 2017.

Seemingly out of nowhere images of tens of thousands of protestors in the streets of Hong Kong confronting tear gas with umbrellas are dominating the media. 'Occupy Central' is what Hong Kongers are calling the movement to maintain democratic rule on the island. It has been able to assemble hundreds of thousands to demonstrate since July, when Beijing publicized in a white paper that it would no longer tolerate independent rule in Hong Kong.

Wonkblog: Obama’s biggest climate change victory might have nothing to with carbon dioxide

Sep 23 2014 7:41am CDT | Source: The Washington Post

Today's summit on climate change at the United Nations is more of a show and tell for world leaders than anything else. No negotiations are planned. Xi Jinping, Narendra Modi and Vladimir Putin -- the heads of three of the four states that produce the most carbon dioxide emissions -- all apparently have better things to do. The international community is scheduled to continue negotiations formally in Paris next year, but the chances for a comprehensive binding agreement on carb ...
