Lawmakers, Political Advisors Barred For Breaking One-child Rule

From Xinhua:

Twenty-one people in northeast China’s Liaoning Province have been barred from taking their seats as lawmakers or as political advisors because they violated the country’s one-child law.

“Violation of family planning policy has become a veto criterion in the election of lawmakers and political advisors at all levels,” said Mu Weiyong, vice director of the provincial population and family planning commission.

Liaoning also imposed tougher penalties on members of the Communist Party of China (CPC), cadres, and model workers.
