China Daily (Canada) - - ACROSS AMERICAS - By XINHUA

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.
