BEIJING - China's top legislature finalized the dismissal of Ji Jianye, former mayor of Nanjing, capital of East China's Jiangsu province, as a national legislator on Saturday .

Ji was removed from his post as deputy to the 12th National People's Congress (NPC) on November 29 by the Standing Committee of the Jiangsu Provincial People's Congress, where he had been elected.

The NPC Standing Committee reviewed and upheld Jiangsu's decision at its bimonthly session, which closed here Saturday.

Ji was dismissed as Nanjing mayor after he came under investigation for serious discipline violations this October.
