PRC Politburo First Ever Property Disclosure

https://www.bannedbook.org/bnews/comments/20170203/653143.html

An intriguing article on the  China Banned Book website about the Chinese Communist Party’s Chinese New Year’s Party’s seating arrangement ‘kremlinology’.

Further down is even more interesting news. Quoting the February issue of the Hong Kong monthly publication Chaoxun.

More interesting though is a report of the Party’s Politburo members  first ever internal report of personal property to Chairman Xi in late 2016.

I wonder if there will be an emoluments clause in the Chinese Communist Party Constitution?

There was no mention of Secretary Xi making a report of his personal property.

香港《超讯》月刊2月号报导,去年底,习近平主持召开中共政治局一年一次的民主生活会。在会上,政治局委员被要求逐一申报个人财产。有些委员有几段婚姻都要说明原因。每名委员讲完后,习近平一一作点评。据称,这是中共最高层第一次内部申报财产。
