SCMP: Guangdong set for tough blitz in war on graftPosted: July 6, 2012
SCMP says, “Guangdong officials may have a hard time escaping the heat this summer, as provincial party boss Wang Yang appears poised to escalate his campaign against corrupt cadres – especially as it promises to further increase his political capital ahead of the 18th Communist Party congress.
“The party secretary told government officials last week Guangdong’s graft-busters would offer no quarter to bureaucrats and party leaders cheating the system for personal gain. ‘We must fight corruption with extreme determination, courage and persistence in order to maintain the advancement and purity of the Chinese Communist Party,’ he said, according to mainland media.
“‘We will not offer any appeasement to corrupt parties.’”
