The cartoon released on Jan 22, 2013 illustrates what the Party chief Xi Jinping advocated as part of his stated commitment to stamp out corruption.
Xi has vowed to crack down on both "tigers" and "flies" – powerful leaders and lowly bureaucrats – in his campaign against corruption and petty bureaucracy.
Scandals involving highly placed leaders, day-to-day incidents of minor corruption and the inefficiency or negligence by local cadres are among the most potent sources of public discontent.
"We must uphold the fighting of tigers and flies at the same time, resolutely investigating law-breaking cases of leading officials and also earnestly resolving the unhealthy tendencies and corruption problems which happen all around people," Xi said on Tuesday, Jan 22, 2013 at a plenary meeting of the Party's top anti-corruption body, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China.
