A total of 9,100 people were reprimanded, educated or penalized last month, according to a monthly report from the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and the National Supervisory Commission.

About half of the cases involved bureaucratism and the practice of formality for formality's sake, and the other half related to hedonism and extravagance.

"There is no end to the task of improving Party conduct," stressed a meeting of criticism and self-criticism held by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee in late December 2021.
