The Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee decided Wednesday to discuss a proposal about amending part of China's Constitution at the second plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Committee in January.

No details were released on which section of the Constitution might be amended.

The political bureau meeting Wednesday also heard a work report from the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and discussed the Party's anti-graft work in 2018.

The campaign to ensure full and strict governance over the Party and curb corruption shall not stop, said a statement issued after the meeting.

The statement said discipline inspection agencies will focus on Party members who are disloyal and dishonest to the Party, who comply in public but oppose in private, who disobey the Party's political guidelines and compromise the political environment.

Stressing the significance of the campaign tackling undesirable work ethic, the statement said the priority is to curb bureaucratism, red tape and privilege.

To consolidate the progress of the anti-graft campaign, the CCDI will push forward reform of the national supervision system and fight corruption at the lower ranks, the statement said.

Officials who continued engaging in misconduct after the Party's 18th National Congress in late 2012, those who have received complaints from the public, and senior officials who are likely to be promoted will be placed under strict scrutiny.

Those who develop personal networks and foster interest groups within the Party will face severe punishment, the statement said.
