‘Bulldozing’ Nanjing Mayor Booted From Party

‘Bulldozing’ Nanjing Mayor Booted From Party

Following his October dismissal from office, the Communist Party has now expelled Ji Jianye, the former mayor of Nanjing, for moral corruption. From Agence France-Presse:

Ji Jianye was found to have “received a huge amount of money and gifts either by himself or through his family members”, the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) said in a statement posted on its website.

[…] Ji — who earned the nickname “Bulldozer Ji” for his promotion of construction projects in the city of eight million — was sacked in October for “suspected serious disciplinary violations”.

[…] In China, expulsion from the ruling party is normally a precursor to criminal charges. [Source]

Indeed, Katie Hunt at CNN reports that “Ji’s case would now be handled by China’s judicial system.”  Read more about the Communist Party’s anti-corruption crackdown via CDT.
