China will explore ways to establish an official residence system to curb potential corruption of officials in housing, according to a decision of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee published on Friday.
The decision, which is on major issues concerning comprehensively deepening reforms, was approved at the close of the Third Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee on Tuesday.
The decision said officials and cadres' living allowance system should be regulated and strictly implemented, saying that they are not allowed to occupy houses and offices in multiple places.
Officials and cadres are not allowed to use offices or houses beyond standard, or use government's vehicles that violate related rules, said the decision.
Officials and cadres are not allowed to be allocated with secretaries out of line, or be received with over-standard treatment, the decision said, adding that accepting over-standard treatment will be punished severely.
