BEIJING, April 19 (Xinhua) -- Vowing thorough investigations into the Wang Lijun incident, the death of Briton Neil Heywood and Bo Xilai's serious violations, the Communist Party of China (CPC) has shown its dedication to the fight against corruption.
The Party's unequivocal and consistent opposition to corruption and the steady, notable new progress made in fighting corruption and upholding integrity provide an important guarantee for advancing reform, opening up, and socialist modernization.
However, it's a fact that the country's anti-graft fight is still very challenging, and for a very long time, achievements will be accompanied by problems, just as increasing crackdown efforts and higher public expectations will meet with frequent and die-hard corrupt phenomena.
The country's anti-corruption drive is set to be a long-term, complicated and arduous one. It is not surprising that the CPC, with more than 80 million members, have some black sheep. The important thing is that the Party is fully aware of the grave situation and has been resorting to forceful measures to improve the institutions for punishing and preventing corruption.
Corruption is a common enemy for all, especially for a country that is undergoing social and economic transformations. If the issue is left unattended, a country may implode, its ruling power will collapse, and its society left in chaos.【1】 【2】
