BEIJING, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday urged leaders from all departments of the Central Military Commission (CMC) to hold high demands for themselves and impose strict self-discipline to set excellent examples for all servicemen.
Leaders of CMC organs must be loyal, clean and responsible, and consciously regulating their behaviors by the Party's rules and disciplines, Xi said.
They must be determined to overcome formalism and bureaucracy, as indicated by excessive meetings, redundant paperwork, unnecessary appraisals and inspections, Xi said.
Xi, also chairman of the CMC, asked the leaders to enhance the concept of rule of law, and adhere to the principles of running the armed forces by law, and with the highest standards.
Xi said leaders of the CMC organs should set an example in carrying forward the glorious tradition of the armed forces and stimulate vigor and innovative vitality in servicemen.
Leaders of CMC organs must draw a profound lesson from the corruption cases of Guo Boxiong and Xu Caihou, both former vice chairmen of the CMC, and take a clear-cut stand against corruption, Xi said.
They must proactively cultivate an honest and upright political ecology so that all officers and soldiers can see a bright new image of the CMC organs and feel the "positive energy," Xi said.
