Party over for Guangzhou officials

Last orders have been called for government officials in Guangzhou, with the municipal authorities banning them from nightclubs, private clubs and discos, the Global Times reported Thursday, citing Xinhua.

The city’s discipline directorate has ordered officials to steer clear of public places of entertainment as the country grinds on with efforts to rein in official excess.

As part of the crackdown, officials are banned from using public funds to pay for luxury meals and prohibited from accepting gifts, souvenirs and shopping coupons.
