CHINA DAILY USA
Wang Min, former top official of Liaoning province and a senior national legislator, has been expelled from theCommunist Party ofChina and dismissed from public office for serious breaches of Party discipline, the country’s top anti-graft agency said onWednesday.
During his time as Party chief of Liaoning, Wang failed to properly supervise provincial elections and was responsible for serious election f r a u d including vote buying, according to a statement by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
Wang was accused of using his position and power to assist others in matters including promotions and business in exchange for moneyandproperty, orbenefits for his family, which CANADA constitutes the crime of bribe-taking, the statement said.
Moreover, he had openly protested and violated frugality rules and spent public funds on expensive dinners, and he resisted investigations against him, the statement said.
Wang was vice-chairman of the Education, Science, Culture and Public Health Committee of the 12thNationalPeople’s Congress after leaving the post of Liaoning Party chief.
Since he is a member of the 18th CPC Central Committee, the decision to expel him requires approval at the next plenary meeting of the CPC Central Committee, the statement said.
The CCDI announced its investigation of Wang in March.
It was also decided that his illegal gains will be confiscated and his case transferred to judicial departments, the statement said.
