BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Wang Xiaoguang, former vice governor of southwest China's Guizhou Province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and public office for multiple offenses including taking bribes, the anti-graft authorities said Thursday.
Wang's expulsion from the CPC has been approved by the CPC Central Committee, while the National Supervisory Commission has removed him from public office, according to a statement issued by the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and the top supervisory commission.
Wang was found in serious violation of the Party's political code of conduct and rules, including soliciting votes by illegal means, said the statement.
Wang, also a former Standing Committee member of the CPC Guizhou Provincial Committee, has been under investigation by the CCDI and the National Supervisory Commission since April.
Other offenses include refusing to cooperate in the investigation, falsifying personal information submitted to Party organs, using public funds for personal purposes, intervening in judicial affairs, abusing his power to seek benefits for others and taking a huge amount of bribes.
Wang's case and his illegal gains have been transferred to judicial organs, the statement said.
