The 2nd Plenary Session of the 19th Central Commission for Disciplinary Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China (CPC) took place January 11-13.
Song Xiuyan, director of the Party leadership group, vice-president and first member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), on January 12 presided over a meeting which was held to convey and implement the spirit of the CCDI session.
At the event, officials from the Party leadership group exchanged ideas, with a focus on the important speeches of Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee.
The plenary session further strengthened and developed Party discipline in a comprehensive way, said Party members.
At a time when the Party is entering a new era, Xi's speeches have clearly explained self-governance strategies and pointed out the general requirements and main tasks to be undertaken over a long period.
They have shown the Party's firm determination and responsibility in governing itself strictly, which also has provided a guideline for future practice, said officials.
Song put forward clear requests on comprehensively strengthening Party discipline according to her own practical work. She emphasized that the ACWF has carried out women-relevant work under the leadership of the Party and should prioritize the strengthening of political development.
ACWF members should earnestly study and implement the spirit of the 19th CPC National Congress, with Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics in the New Era at its core.
Members should also resolutely support Xi's core role in the Party and its central committee; safeguard the authority of the Party Central Committee and its centralized, unified leadership; and coincide with the Party in political direction, political principle and political path.
Song also noted that ACWF members should continue to implement the eight provisions of the central government; improve Party conduct; and internalize its spirit in mind and action.
Party members should strengthen education on discipline through criticism and self-criticism. They should be loyal to the Party and put it at the highest position in their hearts according to relevant requirements.
All members of the leadership group, together with the officials from various departments and units directly under ACWF, participated in the meeting and shared their thoughts.
