A netizen previously asked whether being disciplined means the end of one’s political career and no chance for promotion. The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the National Supervisory Commission used three cases – involving officials who had been punished previously but later all got promoted based on their performance – as examples to respond to this question in February 2020.
