Residents of a city in Guangdong Province can now chat directly with their local Party leadership through a specially-designed app, Xinhua reported on Sunday.

"Party members' responsibility," developed for Zhaoqing's Dinghu district, enables locals to connect and offer suggestions to cadres.

The Party officials, in turn, can respond to comments and post about their latest work for the local community.  

"I uploaded photos of low-income families in the district to let people know what we would do next," said Shen Shuiyuan, a Party member working in the district.

Party members can post updates as to the most pressing issues of the community following their visits to local households. The issues are then addressed by different departments.

The app also allows for better supervision of the cadres' work by relevant authorities.

A total 2,016 party members working in the district have registered with the app since its release in June.

By the end of August, more than 2,900 issues were reported and recorded, 87 percent of which have already been addressed.
