Wang Sanyun, former chief of the Gansu provincial committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and a senior national legislator, has been expelled from the Party and dismissed from public office for actions including accepting bribes, according to an announcement on Friday.

Wang was found to have responded passively and perfunctorily to major decisions by the CPC Central Committee, committed dereliction of duty, lost his political stance, made groundless criticisms of the Party's key policies and to have long engaged in "superstitious activities," said a statement from the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI).

Wang was accused of allowing certain officials to pick official posts, regardless of their problems such as disciplinary violations.

He used his position and power to seek profits for others and accepted "a huge amount of money and property," which constitutes the crime of bribe taking, according to the statement.

Wang also frequented private clubs, it added.

Wang was vice chairman of the Education, Science, Culture and Public Health Committee of the 12th National People's Congress after leaving the post of Gansu Party chief.

Since he is a member of the 18th CPC Central Committee, the decision to expel him will be officially approved at the next plenary meeting of the CPC Central Committee, the statement said.

The CCDI announced its investigation of Wang in July.

Sanctions against Wang have been approved by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, according to the CCDI.

It was also decided that his illegal gains will be confiscated and his case transferred to judicial departments, the statement said.
