Xi stresses role of leading officials in promoting rule of law
"Leading officials at all levels shoulder a major responsibility in pushing forward the rule of law. To promote the comprehensive rule of law, we must exert the critical role played by leading officials or this 'key minority'." Xi Jinping stresses the crucial role of leading officials in promoting law-abiding behavior.
Officials who rely on common people for food and clothing should not bully them as officials themselves hail from people; Officials who should derive neither honor from their position nor dishonor from position loss are not useless as a region's prosperity depends on them.
This popular couplet from ancient times contains the truth that officials who come from the people should set a good example for others.
