The projects comprise one amending and supplementing the 11th Politburo’s Regulation No. 163-QD/TW dated February 1, 2013 on functions, tasks, authority and operation of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-corruption, and another amending and supplementing the 11th Politburo’s Decision No. 159-QD/TW dated December 28, 2012 on functions, tasks and organisation of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs.
The Politburo basically approved contents of the projects as well as the report on these documents presented by a representative from the Commission for Internal Affairs.
Addressing the meeting, Trong said after more than six years of implementing Decision No. 159, the Commission for Internal Affairs has proposed many major policies, guidelines and orientations on internal affairs.
The commission has performed its role as the standing agency of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-corruption, he said, stressing the commission’s efforts in pushing ahead with the investigation, prosecution and settlement of complex economic and corrupt cases of public concern.
He also lauded the Central Steering Committee for Anti-corruption for its performance in detecting and handling corrupt cases.
The committee and commission have significantly contributed to Party building and rectification, internal affairs and corruption combat, thus helping to consolidate public confidence in the Party and the State, Trong noted.
According to Trong, the amendment and supplement aim to affirm and promote the role of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-corruption in steering and inspecting the corruption combat, and the role of the Commission for Internal Affairs in providing consultations on anti-corruption, internal affairs and administrative reform for the Party Central Committee, Politburo, the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat and the Central Steering Committee for Anti-corruption.
The projects also affirm the Party and State’s strong resolve to prevent and combat corruption, he said.
