Party Building Column | How to Understand the New Party Constitution and Further Clarify the Six Major Disciplines of the Party?


The Party's "Six Major Disciplines"

Our party is a Marxist political party organized by revolutionary ideals and strong discipline, and strict discipline is the party's excellent tradition and unique advantage. Article 40 of the Amendment to the Party Constitution of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China clarifies that the Party's discipline mainly includes political discipline, organizational discipline, integrity discipline, mass discipline, work discipline, and life discipline, making the ruler of comprehensive and strict governance of the Party increasingly clear.

 

The six disciplines refer to the political discipline, organizational discipline, integrity discipline, mass discipline, work discipline and life discipline of the CPC. The compliance with the six major disciplines is the focus of the inspection work.

 

Strictly enforce the political discipline of the Party and maintain its unity and centralization. Political discipline is a rule that party organizations at all levels and all party members must abide by in terms of political stance, direction, speech, and behavior. It is the discipline of the leader in charge of the overall management, and adherence to the party's political discipline is an important foundation for adhering to all party discipline. We must abide by and maintain the Party Constitution, implement certain guidelines for political life within the Party under the new situation, prioritize political discipline and rules, strengthen Party supervision, guide Party members and leading cadres to enhance political sensitivity and discernment, consciously safeguard the authority of the Party Central Committee and centralized and unified leadership, and maintain the unity and unity of the entire Party.

 

Strictly enforce the Party's organizational discipline and enhance the discipline of the entire Party organization. Organizational discipline is a behavioral rule that regulates and handles the relationships between various levels of Party organizations, between Party organizations and Party members, and between Party members and Party members. It is a fundamental condition for maintaining the concentration and unity of the Party and maintaining its combat effectiveness. We should regard the "four obediences" as the most basic discipline, urge party members and cadres to strengthen organizational awareness, strictly abide by organizational systems and procedures, strictly implement democratic centralism and the system of seeking instructions and reporting, and strictly follow organizational principles and procedures to handle affairs and consciously accept organizational arrangements and disciplinary constraints.

 

Strictly enforce the Party's integrity and discipline, and curb the spread of corruption. Integrity discipline is the behavior rules that party organizations and party members should abide by in their official activities or other activities related to the exercise of their powers, and it is an important guarantee for the integrity of cadres, government, and political integrity. Corruption is the biggest threat to the Party's long-term governance. We must seriously investigate and punish the trading of power, money, and color, and accept gifts, gifts, and consumption cards beyond the standard and scope, and always maintain the integrity and political integrity of Communist Party members.

 

Strictly enforce the Party's mass discipline and maintain the flesh and blood connection between the Party and the people. Mass discipline is a rule of conduct that must be observed by Party organizations at all levels and all Party members to implement the Party's mass line and handle the relationship between the Party and the masses. It is an important manifestation of the progressiveness nature of the Party. We must adhere to the people's stance, enhance their emotions, improve their work skills, and seriously investigate and punish behaviors that exceed standards and scope by apportioning fees to the people, as well as embezzlement of people's property and arrears of money. We must also investigate and punish behaviors that are favoritism, kindness, and unfairness in social security, disaster relief and material distribution, as well as behaviors that deal negatively with the people, shift blame, and have a bad attitude, Always maintain the flesh and blood connection between the Party and the people.

 

Strictly enforce the Party's work discipline and strengthen the political responsibility of governing the Party. Work discipline is a behavioral rule that all levels of Party organizations and all Party members must abide by in the specific work of the Party, and is an important guarantee for the normal development of the Party's various work. We must firmly grasp the "bull nose" of the overall strict governance of the Party's main responsibility, and seriously investigate the behavior of unclear understanding and inadequate implementation of the main responsibility, or those who dare not take responsibility or are unwilling to take responsibility. We must also investigate the irresponsible or negligent management of the Party organization's leaders, pretend to be deaf and dumb to existing problems, and avoid serious issues to ensure that the comprehensive strict governance of the Party's political responsibility is implemented effectively.

 

Strictly enforce the Party's life discipline and consciously cultivate noble moral character. Life discipline is a behavioral rule that party members should abide by in their daily life and social interactions, involving various aspects such as personal morality, family virtues, social morality, and directly related to the image of the party. We must seriously investigate and punish behaviors such as hedonism, extravagance, and the pursuit of vulgar tastes, as well as behaviors that violate family ethics and social order and good customs, and urge party members and cadres to set good examples in their daily lives.

 

The six major disciplines are interrelated and unified, covering all aspects of the Party's discipline, reflecting the high standards and strict requirements for Party members. They provide a powerful weapon for maintaining the Party's physical health and maintaining its unity, and provide important guarantees for implementing the Party's line, principles, and policies, and completing various tasks of the Party.
