Dozens of deputies to NPC and CPPCC to be replaced before start of annual meetings
As a result of the widening national drive to combat graft, Ling Jihua, former vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and 12 other deputies have been dismissed or forced to resign since March 2013 following corruption investigations, authorities said on Sunday.
Thirty-four deputies to National People’s Congress, China’s top legislature, have also been stripped of their memberships for “suspected serious violations of law and Party discipline”－a term for corruption.
Ling was removed on Saturday Cheap Pat O’Donnell Jersey , a CPPCC meeting revealed.
According to officials, 31 newly elected deputies to the NPC and 13 new CPPCC deputies will fill vacancies before the annual two sessions begin on Tuesday and Thursday.
“We should get rid of corrupt deputies, no matter who they are. Others will better represent the public in the performance of their duty to actively participate in discussions of major national political and economic issues,” said attorney Li Wei of the Beijing Lawyers Association.
Since November 2012, President Xi Jinping has conducted a sweeping drive to fight graft. During the past two years, 47 deputies to the NPC and CPPCC have been dismissed or forced to resign.
Those stripped of CPPCC membership also include Ma Jian Cheap Adrian Amos Jersey , former vice-minister of State security. Those dismissed from the NPC include Su Rong, former vice-chairman of the CPPCC; Jin Daoming, former vice-head of the Shanxi Provincial People’s Congress; He Huazhang, former mayor of Suining, Sichuan province; and Liu Zheng, former deputy head of the General Logistics Department of the People’s Liberation Army.
“The dismissed deputies were mainly governmental officials Cheap Kyle Fuller Jersey , senior PLA officials and directors of State-owned enterprises,” said one official of the CPPCC, who declined to give his name. He added that many of the dismissed deputies came from places hit hard by the anti-graft campaign, such as Shanxi, Sichuan and Henan provinces.
The People’s Liberation Army meanwhile pledged to continue the fight against corruption in its education campaign.
Inspections and auditing will continue and corrupt military personnel will receive harsher punishment, the Central Military Commission affirmed.
PLA’s Party leaders were told to address the negative impact on the army’s ideological Cheap Charles Leno Jr Jersey , political and organizational work of former CMC vice-chairman Xu Caihou’s graft case.
The leaders were also reminded to ensure honest and transparent reporting on “personal affairs”, and relatives and subordinates that worked closely with them.
Party representatives must fully understand the military countercorruption drive, so that they identify existing problems and address them in a strict and urgent manner, the CMC leaders said.
“Grey zones” and “hidden rules” must be eliminated.
More regulation on the power of Party leaders in the PLA was needed, and decisions on the selection of officers, major expenditure Cheap Bryce Callahan Jersey , construction projects and material procurement, should be made collectively by the Party committee rather than by individual Party leaders,
The education campaign, which started in January, is designed to promote honesty and discipline in officers.

BEIJING, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) — After a year of bitter rivalry Cheap Bobby Massie Jersey , a merger between two Chinese major taxi hailing apps on Valentine’s Day was the day’s biggest surprise.
Didi Dache and Kuaidi Dache, both start ups, announced that they would put their differences aside and explore the sector together.
Didi CEO Cheng Wei said the deal was the largest merger in China’s internet history and the combined entity would find its way on to the list of the top 10 Chinese Internet-based companies.
The newly founded company, which is yet to announce its official name, has been valued at 6 billion U.S. dollars.
Industrial experts say that taxi-hailing apps will challenge established companies.
While passengers will reap the benefits of convenience and cheaper fares from the new merger, established taxi giants will not be so fortunate.
One of the most lucrative businesses in China Cheap Akiem Hicks Jersey , taxis reap considerable profits each year from exclusive government deals, but offer little in return for the end users.
The sector was untouched by the economic downturn as passengers had no other alternative, and most cab drivers’ operation licenses were linked to companies.
However, after Kuaidi and Didi both launched ride-on-demand services last year, clients left traditional companies for better service and a more comfortable ride.
The apps generally provide two types of service: A taxi-hailing service, which is welcomed by cab drivers and ensures passengers are picked up by licensed cabs; or the more expensive ride-on-demand service Cheap Danny Trevathan Jersey , which offers higher quality vehicles that are owned by car-rental companies.
In east China’s Hangzhou City, where Kuaidi’s headquarters are located, its ride-on-demand service has 4,000 cars, accounting for nearly 40 percent of all licensed cabs. Cab drivers, already plagued by high contract fees Cheap Nick Kwiatkoski Jersey , responded by striking for three days in August over falling passengers numbers, which they blamed on the apps.
Zhang Xu from Analysis International described the apps as a breath of fresh air in the rigid sector.
Industrial experts believe the merger will compel taxi firms to restructure.
“Taxi companies should have a sense of urgency,” director of the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission, Sun Jianping said.
