Wang Qishan Takes Action After Xi Jinping Started
A Hurricane of Anti-Corruption
After Wang Qishan the secretary of the Chinese Communist
Party (CCP) Discipline Inspection Commission came to power,
there were frequent anti-corruption actions.
Recently, the mainland media disclosed that Wang Qishan and
other members of the Central Commission for Discipline
Inspection, interviewed 53 central-level discipline inspection
team leaders and secretaries.
Analysts believe that General Secretary Xi Jinping is using
this new anti-corruption action of the Central Commission for
Discipline Inspection to purge the CCP.
The discipline inspection and supervision newspaper disclosed
on May 16th from April 22nd to 26th over five days, the members
of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection leadership
implemented the eight provisions of the CCP Central Committee;
They had interviewed 53 discipline inspection team leaders and
secretaries in the central CCP and other national organs.
Apparently on April 22nd Wang Qishan personally interviewed
Liu Jianhua, head of the Ministry of Finance of the CCP Central
Commission for Discipline Inspection, and Qiang Weidong,
secretary of Commission for Discipline Inspection of the SASAC.
The same day, about 10 discipline inspection team leaders and
secretaries in the central CCP and other national bodies, together
with Zhao Hongzhu, deputy secretary of the CCP Central
Commission for Discipline Inspection had one-on-one interviews.
Later on, the leaders of the Central Discipline Inspection
Commission also interviewed members of the Central and local
Commission for Discipline Inspection.
Hua Po, a current affairs observer said, “The CCP may perform
some reorganization of the supervision system of the Commission
for Discipline Inspection, taking local rights back to central CCP.
It tries to get rid of leadership of local party committees over
secretaries of Commission for Discipline Inspection.
It makes the local secretaries of Commission for Discipline
Inspection leaders directly, supervise local party committees."
Three days before the interview, on April 19th Xi decided to
carry out so-called educational practice of the CCP’s people
policy for about a year.
The outside world believes it is a new round of
purging within the CCP.
The current affairs observer Hua Po in Beijing analyzed that
the purge within the CCP is well underway.
Xi Jinping and Wang Qishan will make use of the Commission
for Discipline Inspection to eliminate political opponents.
After the actions of the Central Commission for Discipline
Inspection, who will be involved in the anti-corruption storm?
After Xi Jinping’s high-profile anti-corruption, he mentioned
fighting with the Tiger.
After the 18th NPC, three provincial and ministerial level senior
officials have been sacked.
These were Li Chuncheng, deputy secretary of Sichuan Province,
Wu Yongwen, deputy director of NPC Standing Committee in
Hubei Province, and Liu Tienan, director, National Energy Bureau.
At the start of 2013, the news said that Xi’s anti-corruption
action would start from senior officials of the financial industry,
and the list had been drawn up.
Non-governmental economic independent scholar Zheng Yi
in China said, “The situation is compelling. It’s like a hot steel
pan, and nobody could be safe in this arena, and economic
platform, because there have been many contradictions.
It includes many economic decisions, policies and monetary
policies, and it has caused great difficulties."
Currently, Yan Shaohui, a chief engineer of the Shanghai
Futures Exchange, as well as Zhang Guoyuan, Director of
Technology Center of China Financial Futures Exchange,
were under the prosecution’s investigation.
According to statistics, after the 18th NPC, in the securities
industry, about 10 executives were investigated on suspicion
of insider trading or commercial bribery.
However, are these so-called tigers?
Hua Po said since the resignation of Bo Xilai, the former
Chongqing Party Secretary, it had greatly impacted the CCP’s
ruling position, and it dares not to fight to a higher level.
Hua Po said, “On the level of members of the Politburo,
these dozens of people, were investigated one after another.
I think, the CCP feels even harder to explain, and could not
conceal the internal sickness of the CCP regime itself."
However, some observers believe that the stepping down of
Li Chuncheng, a confidant of Zhou Yongkang, former secretary
of Central Politics and Law Committee,
The resignation of Yi Junqing, the director of Department of
the Central Compilation and Translation Bureau for Jiang Zemin,
As well as the fall from grace of Liu Tienan, said to be the
financial housekeeper of the family of Jiang Zemin,
This series of actions from Xi Jinping perhaps is to help dig
out the real tiger and focus on Jiang.
