Prof. Guo Li from Peking University Law School was appointed as the special supervisor of the State Supervision Commission and attended the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection
On the afternoon of January 11, 2019, the Third Session of the 19th Central Commission for Discipline Inspection held its second meeting. Zhao Leji, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee and secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, made a work report on behalf of the Standing Committee of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. The 13 special supervisors of the State Supervision Commission were invited to attend, which was the first time in the history of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. Prof. Guo Li, Party Secretary and Deputy Dean of Peking University Law School, was invited as a special inspector to attend the meeting.
Deepening the party's disciplinary inspection system and the reform of the state's supervisory system are the major decision-making arrangements made by the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core to strengthen the self-monitoring of the party and the state. To regulate and correctly exercise state supervision, we must strengthen self-monitoring and consciously accept external supervision. The establishment of a special ombudsman system is an important measure for the introduction of external supervision by the State JISC, which fully demonstrates the clear attitude of the discipline inspection and supervision organs to actively accept supervision and consciously support supervision.
"As a special supervisor, attending the conference is not only a part of the performance of the job, but also a rare learning opportunity. We will actively play the role of staff consultation, bridges, and public opinion guidance, publicize the spirit of the plenary session, and work with the grassroots environment, actually combine and supervise their implementation.” Prof. Guo Li said.
In August 2018, the State Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection issued the "Measures for the Work of Special Inspectors of the National Commission" (hereinafter referred to as the "Working Methods"), decided to establish a special ombudsman system, and guided and standardized the work of the special ombudsman. According to the "Working Measures", the special ombudsman is a public trustee who is preferably hired by the State JISC according to the needs of the work, and performs duties such as supervision and consultation in a part-time manner. They are like supervisors, staff officers, associates, and guides.
The "Working Measures" stipulates that the special ombudsmen are mainly hired from the NPC deputies, and may also be members of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the relevant departments of the central and state organs, members of the democratic parties, non-party members, enterprises, institutions and social groups. Representatives, experts and scholars, media and literary and art workers, as well as first-line representatives and grassroots people are preferred to hire. After becoming a special inspector, he does not leave his job position. The salary, bonus, and welfare are the responsibility of the unit.
On the morning of December 17, 2018, the State Supervisory Committee convened the first special ombudsman to hire a meeting, preferably hiring 50 special ombudsmen. On the same day, the State Commission of Supervisors issued the “Decision on Hiring the First Special Ombudsman”, and the performance of 50 special inspectors was officially opened. The 50 special ombudsmen announced this time include 35 men and 15 women. Among them are the staff of the central and state organs, as well as representatives of enterprises and institutions. They have authoritative experts in various fields of industry as well as front-line representatives at the grassroots level. This gives them a unique advantage in connecting with the masses, understanding the truth, and discovering problems.
Prof. Guo Li, Party Secretary and Deputy Dean of Peking University Law School, was hired as the first special inspector. It reflects the high trust and full recognition of Peking University and Peking University Law School by the Party Central Committee and the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. This is also a powerful manifestation of Peking University Law School's active service to the party and the country's core work and major development strategies, and solid fulfillment of the social responsibility of colleges and universities. Peking University Law School will steadily promote the construction of “double first-class” and make due contributions to comprehensively deepening reform and comprehensively administering the country according to law.
