China Urged to Investigate Corruption by Low-Level Officials

China needs to pay more attention to low-level government corruption, the chief of the Communist Party’s discipline department wrote, according to the state-run People’s Daily.

The government should seriously investigate the “buying and selling of official posts,” bribery for votes, arbitrary school fees and the use of “evil forces as protection umbrellas,” He Guoqiang wrote in an article to be published today in the party magazine “Seeking Truth,” People’s Daily reported.

China’s Communist Party is seeking to crack down on corruption ahead of this year’s once-a-decade leadership transition. The ouster of Politburo member Bo Xilai, after his wife was taken into custody on murder charges, spurred official statements that his case was an aberration and not representative of larger problems within the party.

Other problem areas include land acquisitions, sales of pharmaceutical products, fake drugs and food, and the encroachment of state assets at state-owned enterprises, He wrote, according to People’s Daily.

In March, Premier Wen Jiabao said in a speech that the government could lose its grip on power unless it imposes stronger measures to fight corruption.
