Former SW China official expelled from CPC for disciplinary violations

The Communist Party of China (CPC) on Wednesday expelled a former senior official from southwest China’s Yunnan Province for “serious disciplinary violations”, the Party’s disciplinary watchdog said.

Zhang Tianxin, former Party secretary of Kunming, capital city of Yunnan, was stripped of his CPC membership and demoted, “for dereliction of duty which led to losses of state assets, and for taking advantage of his position for personal gains”, according to the CPC Central Commission for Discipline and Inspection (CCDI).

Zhang’s profits from his improper activities will be confiscated, it added.
