Liu Qiang, former vice governor of northeast China's Liaoning Province, has been expelled from the Communist Party of China (CPC) and public office for multiple offences.

Liu was found in serious violation of the Party's political code of conduct and rules, including soliciting votes through bribery and lobbying, the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said Monday.

Liu, also a former member of the Liaoning Provincial Government's CPC leadership group, has been under investigation by the CCDI since last November.

Other offences include undermining investigation against him, organizing superstitious activities, visiting private clubs and reimbursing personal costs, not reporting personal matters to authorities according to rules, and selling public offices.

Liu is also accused of accepting gifts and money against rules, securing illegal gains for his relatives, and exchange power for sex.

Liu's case and his illegal gains have been transferred to judicial organs as he is suspected of being guilty of undermining elections and taking huge amount of bribes in money and valuables, the CCDI stated.

His expulsion from the Party and public office were authorized by the CPC Central Committee and the State Council respectively, according to the CCDI.
