BEIJING, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged senior officials to set an example in improving work styles and serving the people.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, made the remarks on Friday at a study session attended by members of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
"We should always keep the 'three stricts and three earnests' in mind, adhere to the truth and resolutely correct misconduct that goes against the cause of the CPC and the people," said Xi while presiding over the meeting.
The "three stricts and three earnests" is a series of requirements for officials to improve their lifestyles and work. It refers to being strict in moral, power and discipline, as well as honest in decision, business and behavior.
The education campaign about requirements for officials at or above the county level is an important step for Party building this year, and all Party committees have carried out study and inspections since the campaign started this April, Xi said.
Xi stressed that the CPC's advanced nature and purity as well as its image and prestige are closely tied to the future of the Party and the nation.
"We must run the Party strictly and maintain close relations with the people," said Xi.
The CPC must train high-quality cadres with both ability and political integrity to achieve the "two centenary goals" and the strategic layout for national renewal, Xi said.
Group study is a system China's top leadership uses to discuss major issues. Friday's session was the 26th group study of the Political Bureau of the 18th CPC Central Committee.
