Leaders of China's national political advisory body on Tuesday adopted a motion to expel three corrupt officials, including Li Chongxi, former local top political advisor.

The chairman and vice chairpersons of the National Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), decided to remove Li, along with Huang Fengping and Yang Gang, from their posts as national political advisor at a meeting.

Yang was also dismissed from the post as deputy director of the Committee for Economic Affairs of the CPPCC National Committee.

Li, former top political advisor in southwest China's Sichuan Province, was removed from his office for suspected severe violations of discipline, the Communist Party of China's (CPC) organization department announced on Jan 2.

Huang was a former Shanghai health and family planning official. He was arrested by police on Dec 18 for "suspected crimes."

On Dec 27, the CPC's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection announced that Yang was investigated for "suspected serious law and discipline violations."

The decision on Tuesday will be submitted to the fourth meeting of the Standing Committee of the 12th CPPCC National Committee for acknowledgement, according to the meeting, which was presided over by Yu Zhengsheng, chairman of the CPPCC National Committee.

The meeting also reviewed the work of various special committees under the CPPCC in 2013 and reported major work of the CPPCC National Committee for 2014.
