Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, said Tuesday that the Party's upcoming year-long campaign will be a "thorough cleanup" of undesirable work styles such as formalism, bureaucratism, hedonism and extravagance.

"The main task of the campaign focuses on building work styles," Xi said at a conference marking the start of the latest strongly worded anti-corruption drive.

"Party members should be critical and self-critical in the spirit of rectifying improper work styles," Xi remarked.

"Winning or losing public support is an issue that concerns the CPC's survival or extinction," Xi said on Tuesday, stressing that the mass line, or furthering ties with the people, is the lifeline of the Party.

The campaign will focus on Party organs and officials at or above the county level, who are required to reflect on their own practices and correct any misbehavior.

It also comes after a high-profile campaign against government waste and corruption launched after Xi was elected Party chief in November.

The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee decided in April to launch the campaign to boost ties between Party members and the public from the latter half of this year.
