On the eve of the 17th party congress, reports relate progress in anti-corruption drive. But the party is in crisis and trust among ordinary Chinese in it is at its lowest ebb.

Beijing (AsiaNews) Real estate speculation and women are the most common pitfalls for Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members. According to the Xinhua news agency, Supreme Court figures for last year show that out of 90,000 card-carrying Communists more than 60 per cent were punished for their involvement in illegal real estate deals and almost 90 per cent kept mistresses.

Since the last party caucus five years ago, a total of 16 officials at the ministerial level or above were brought down on corruption charges. Ten of these high-ranking officials removed either sold land at cheap prices in return for bribes from developers or siphoned off public funds for lucrative construction projects, a report said.

Womanising was also rampant in the mainland's upper political echelons. In fact as many as 14 senior officials were identified as reckless philanderers eager to please their lovers using public resources.
