BEIJING - Yu Yuanhui, a former member of the Standing Committee of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Regional Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has been expelled from Party and removed from public office for "serious disciplinary offences," the disciplinary authority announced on Friday.
Preliminary investigation has found that Yu seriously violated CPC rules by openly making statements contradictory to the CPC's requirement of running the Party strictly, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the CPC said in a statement.
The CCDI accused Yu of "seriously violating organizational discipline" by appointing his relatives as his secretary and hiding personal matters from authorities.
He broke the Party's integrity rules by taking advantage of his position to seek profits for others on company operations, and accepting bribes, the statement said, adding Yu also sought profits for his relatives in business operations.
Yu was found splurging public money and using public cars for personal purpose, it said.
"As an alternate member of the CPC Central Committee, Yu lost his faith and values and seriously violated the Party's code of conduct," it said, adding that he did not cease his wrongdoings even after the Party's 18th National Congress in late 2012, and that his illegal earnings have been confiscated.
His case has been transferred to judicial authorities, and his expelling from the CPC will be affirmed by an upcoming plenary meeting of the CPC Central Committee, the statement said.
Yu, also Party secretary of Nanning, capital city of the region in south China, was put under the CCDI probe in May.
