BEIJING, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- Senior Chinese leader He Guoqiang has stressed supervision of government and Party officials and a "severe crackdown" on those that infringe on public interests, according to an article to be published Tuesday.

Restricting and supervising powers is the key to fighting graft, He, head of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, said in an article of this year's 16th issue of Qiushi, or "Seeking Truth," the biweekly official journal of the CPC Central Committee.

The use of power should be regulated and transparent, he said, adding that the supervision of officials should be enhanced.

Problems that people are most concerned with in the fight against corruption should be effectively resolved and "cases infringing upon people's economic, political and personal rights should be severely dealt with," said He, also a Standing Committee member of the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau.

"People's opinions and voices should be carefully listened to in order to respond to their concerns, as people have a clear feeling of problems in the fight against corruption and construction of integrity," He said.

Safeguarding the Party's political disciplines should be prioritized and "those violating political disciplines should be severely punished," he said.

"The CPC Central Committee's authority should be resolutely maintained," He said.
