Resentful cadres warned
THE Chinese Communist Party has given a warning to cadres who harbour resentment against the recent spate of reshuffles in administrations.
The New China News Agency yesterday quoted a source in the party's Organisation Department, which is in charge of personnel matters, as telling cadres affected by the changes to adopt a ''correct'' attitude towards the reshuffles.
Although cadres could voice their opinions, they should accept the party's decisions unconditionally, the source said.
''Listening to what the party says and obeying the arrangements of the party is the correct attitude over an individual's appointment and removal,'' he said.
Noting governments all over the country were undergoing re-election of their leadership, the source said whether cadres accepted the result of elections properly would be a test of their loyalty and ability.
''There has been a longstanding tradition among our cadres to adopt a correct attitude in handling changes in their positions as a result of reform of government structures, streamlining of administration or reshuffling of officials,'' he said.
''There are some comrades who are happy only when they are promoted, but when asked to step down, they will not feel comfortable , or even suspect that they are no longer trusted by the party.'' The source said that while it was natural for cadres affected to air their own opinions regarding their new positions, they should accept without condition decisions made by the party.
