Welcome to the club: Xi takes anti-corruption hunt to all Chinese

New commission has power to go after doctors, nurses and teachers

TOKYO -- In mid-January, a Chinese Communist Party committee decided to revise the nation's constitution. This is to take place in March, when China's parliament meets. It will be the first time in 14 years for the constitution to be revised.

Much has been made about adding "Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era" into the document. But the real significance will be the establishment of the national supervisory commission, which will be put in charge of cracking down on corruption, and an amendment recognizing this new anti-graft body.
