BEIJING - Tong Mingqian, a senior political advisor in Central China's Hunan province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and removed from public office for serious discipline and law violations, according to a statement released by the CPC's discipline watchdog Thursday.

The CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said Tong Mingqian was expelled for dereliction of duty which caused major electoral fraud involving more than 500 lawmakers.

Tong, then Party chief of Hengyang in Hunan, was in charge of the election.

Tong had served as vice chairman of the Hunan Provincial Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
