Corruption fight must be associated with negative phenomena prevention: Party chief

The anti-corruption work should be associated with the prevention of negative phenomena among officials, Party members and public servants, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has requested.

Addressing the Politburo meeting collecting ideas on the project amending and supplementing functions, tasks and power of the Central Steering Committee for Corruption Prevention and Control on September 10, the Party chief stressed that it is necessary to not only fight corruption in the economic field, but more importantly, negative phenomena in political thought, morality, and lifestyle.

Corruption and degradation in political thought, morality, lifestyle, “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” all are manifestations of negative phenomena. Corruption in particular and negative phenomena in general have robbed the transparency of the Party and State apparatus, seriously affecting the honour, prestige, morality and role of setting example of officials, Party members and public servants, and undermining the people's trust in the Party, State and regime, he noted.

The Central Steering Committee for Corruption Prevention and Control now is called the Central Steering Committee for Corruption and Negative Phenomena Prevention and Control.

It is tasked with directing the fight against corruption and negative phenomena, with the focus on the degradation of political thought, morality and lifestyle among officials, Party members and civil servants, leaders and managers of all-level organisations in the political system throughout the country.

The steering committee directly instructs the handling of serious and complicated corruption cases that draw public concern; and cases and other negative acts that seriously affect the honour, reputation, morality and example-setting role of officials, Party members, and civil servants as well as erode trust of the people towards the Party, State and regime.

The Politburo's decision to amend and supplement the functions, tasks and power of the steering committee affirms the determination of the Politburo, Party and State in this work.
