China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) is mulling a revamp of its official evaluation system amid a widening anti-corruption campaign in the country, Xinhua news agency reported Monday. A document issued by the PLA General Political Department has proposed that evaluations of army officials should focus on their political reliability, competence, clean conduct and trustworthiness, the report said. Those in charge of official evaluations should first seek advice from the Communist Party committees at all levels, it said. They must also consult disciplinary organs to check whether the officials are honest and self-disciplined, it said, adding that results of the evaluations would serve as an important reference for official selections and appointments.
