BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Three lawmakers have been dismissed from their posts as NPC deputies, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) confirmed on Sunday.

Sui Fengfu, former deputy director of Heilongjiang Provincial People's Congress Standing Committee, was disqualified as an NPC deputy in Heilongjiang in December.

He has been under investigation for alleged serious discipline violation, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) of the Communist Party of China (CPC) announced in November.

Qin Yuhai, former deputy director of Henan Provincial People's Congress Standing Committee, was also stripped of NPC membership in December after being investigated for discipline violations.

The other dismissal fell on Chen Weimin, former party chief of Pingxiang city of east China's Jiangxi Province, who is also under graft investigation.

The top legislature finalized the resignation of three other NPC deputies.

Provincial legislatures accepted the resignation of Fang Xiping, an NPC deputy elected from Anhui Province, and Luo Qinhong, a deputy elected from Sichuan Province, in November respectively. They have been investigated for graft.

Rong Lanxiang, a deputy from Shandong Province, resigned for personal reasons.

Three other NPC deputies had passed away and their membership terminated accordingly.

In addition, the top legislature confirmed the election of five new deputies, including Lou Yangsheng, deputy party chief of Shanxi Province, and Jiang Chaoliang, governor of Jilin Province.

The total number of NPC deputies currently stands at 2,959.
