Posted: November-03-2014Adjust font size:

BEIJING, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- The Standing Committee of China's National People's Congress (NPC) confirmed Saturday that Su Rong, a former senior political advisor, has been dismissed from his post as an NPC deputy.

Su, former vice chairman of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee, was disqualified as a deputy to the country's top legislature by the Jiangxi Provincial People's Congress Standing Committee on Sept. 25.

In June, Su was removed from his post as the CPPCC National Committee vice chairman after being probed for suspected "serious disciplinary and law violations."

Born in 1948, Su is a native of northeast China's Jilin Province. From 2001 to 2013, he served successively as Party chief of Qinghai, Gansu and Jiangxi provinces.

Su was one of the top-level officials being investigated for corruption and other serious disciplinary violations. Serious offenders have been vividly compared to "tigers" in the Communist Party of China (CPC)'s anti-corruption campaign.

The top legislature also confirmed the dismissal of Bai Enpei, former deputy head of the NPC Environment and Resources Protection Committee, from his deputy post.

Bai was removed from office for suspected "serious discipline and law violations" on Sept. 3.

In addition, Pan Yiyang, former vice chairman of the government of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, was confirmed to be stripped of his NPC deputy post.

Pan, also a former member of the Standing Committee of the CPC Inner Mongolia Autonomous Regional Committee, was removed from his post for suspected discipline and law violations on Sept. 21.

Other dismissals include Yuan Yuzhu and Liu Jianzhong, two enterprise heads and national lawmakers elected from north China's Shanxi Province, as well as Shan Zengqing, a local official and lawmaker elected from northeastern Heilongjiang Province, due to suspected law violations.

Top legislature finalized the resignation of Yan Fulong, former general manager of the State Grid Liaoning Electric Power Supply Co. Ltd, Zhang Zebao, head of a real estate company in central Henan Province, and Deng Quanzhong, former deputy head of the CPC's Ziyang Municipal Committee in southwestern Sichuan Province and former mayor of Ziyang, as NPC deputies. They resigned for law and discipline violations.

Mao Fengmei, an NPC deputy from northeastern Liaoning Province, died on Sept. 26. Lawmaker Wei Jianghong, president of Tongling Nonferrous Metal Group Holding Co., Ltd in eastern Anhui Province, died after falling from a building, according to the top legislature.

It also confirmed the election of Qin Guangrong, former Party chief of southwestern Yunnan Province, as vice chairman of the NPC Committee for Internal and Judicial Affairs.

The total number of NPC deputies currently stands at 2,963.
