BEIJING, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- There will no longer be any place for corrupt officials to hide in the Communist Party of China (CPC), according to a communique released Thursday after a four-day key meeting of the CPC.

In efforts to clean up Party politics, leading officials are banned from using their positions to seek benefits for friends and family. Family members and friends of leading officials will be banned from interfering in the work of leading officials, including personnel arrangements, the communique said.

Stating that building clean politics and opposing corruption was an important task in strengthening and standardizing political life within the Party, the meeting called for the building of a system that ensures officials dare not, will not and cannot be corrupt.

In addition, leading officials at all levels have no right to seek personal privilege, it said, adding that they should take the lead in implementing socialist core values and acting with integrity and self-discipline.

The Party will stick to the policy of "no restricted zones, full coverage and zero tolerance" in its fight against corruption, it added.

The communique was issued after the sixth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee that ran from Monday to Thursday.
