China Expels 45 National Lawmakers Amid Vote-Buying Scandal
(Beijing) — China's top legislature has expelled 45 lawmakers, or nearly half the number elected from Liaoning province, over a bribery and vote-buying scandal.
The decision — announced at a highly unusual emergency meeting of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC) on Tuesday — comes after a two-year investigation by the Communist Party's anti-graft watchdog into election fraud in the northeastern province.
