 ( 2016.04.06 )

BEIJING, April 6 (Xinhua) -- President Xi Jinping has called for Communist Party of China (CPC) organizations at all levels to work to ensure the effectiveness of a year-long campaign to instill rules and good values in Party members.

Xi made the remarks in an instruction on the newly launched education campaign, which focuses on the study of the Party Constitution and rules, as well as the remarks made by Xi, also general secretary of the CPC Central Committee.

Xi noted that the campaign is "a major ideological and political task" that is crucial for the "Four Comprehensives" strategy, especially in pushing strict Party management at the grassroots level.

The "Four Comprehensives" strategy refers to comprehensively completing the building of a moderately prosperous society, deepening reform, advancing the rule of law and strictly governing the CPC.

While affirming the results of past campaigns in regulating Party members and officials and correcting their shortcomings, Xi noted that ideological and political work require long-term efforts.

"Arranging the new study campaign is a step toward expanding intra-Party education from 'a key few' to the Party members more broadly, and a switch from centralized study to study conducted more frequently," Xi said.

Xi stressed that the campaign aims to consolidate Party members' Marxist positions and ensure that the entire Party maintains a high degree of ideological and political consistency with the CPC Central Committee.
