Chinese communist party enhancing control, compliance over military

The Chinese military will establish so-called ‘inspection teams’ that will oversee senior Communist Party members at the rank of military corps and above, according to a newly published regulation in what appears to be a renewed effort to ensure military adherence to, and compliance with, Party principles and ideology.

The teams will regularly supervise Party committees of the Central Military Commission, as well as the armed forces and the country’s armed police, according to the regulation, which took effect on Monday.

The regulation denotes principles, powers, and duties that inspection teams and staff should follow. The teams are designed to find flaws and weaknesses concerned Party leaders, management of the party’s various organizations, and implementation of party discipline within the armed forces.

Also, the regulation spells out how military inspectors should exercise their authorities and duties in accordance with Party rules, as well as how they will be held accountable. [source]
