The Guangdong provincial Party commission for discipline inspection will select a number of districts and counties in which to introduce a pilot project that will require all Party and government officials to report their personal property and the employment status of their spouses and children.

The officials' properties will be made public and public opinion be sought, according to Huang Xianyao, chief of the commission.

The pilot project will be introduced in the districts and counties that lie in the province's northern mountainous area and the prosperous Pearl River Delta region which borders the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions, Huang told local media on Tuesday.

Huang said his commission is busy figuring out the details and introducing relevant rules for the pilot project.

The special pilot project is to be introduced after a number of senior Party and government officials in the province, one of the country's economic powerhouses, have been found to have serious economic discrepancies, placing them under investigation.

Relevant departments in the province have investigated five senior Party and government officials in the past 40 days.
