Three new members filled vacancies of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) following the dismissal of former members from the Party, according to a communique issued on Thursday.

The three new members are Ma Jiantang, Wang Zuo'an and Mao Wanchun, who were alternate members of the CPC Central Committee, according to a communique of the fourth plenary session of the 18th CPC Central Committee, which was held from Monday to Thursday.

Ma is chief of the National Bureau of Statistics, and Wang head of the State Administration of Religious Affairs, while Mao is a member of the standing committee of the CPC Shaanxi provincial committee.

The three officials replaced Li Dongsheng, former vice minister of public security, Jiang Jiemin, former head of the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, and Yang Jinshan, former deputy commander of the Chengdu Military Area Command of the People's Liberation Army.

The plenum deliberated and passed a report filed by the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) on the "serious disciplinary violations" of Li Dongsheng, Jiang Jiemin, Wang Yongchun, Li Chuncheng and Wan Qingliang, according to the communique.

The communique said the plenum also deliberated and passed a report filed by the discipline body of the Central Military Commission (CMC) on Yang's "serious disciplinary violations".

It also endorsed prior decisions to revoke the membership of six former officials, including Li Dongsheng, Jiang Jiemin, Yang Jinshan, Wang Yongchun, Li Chuncheng and Wan Qingliang.

The previous decisions to strip them of their membership were made by the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee.
