BEIJING: China’s highest-ranking politician to be investigated since President Xi Jinping took power has been sacked from his government post after being placed under a corruption probe, state media said on Wednesday. Su Rong, 65, until last year the top Communist party official in the central province of Jiangxi, was “removed” from his most recent post as vice-chairman of the China People’s Political Consultative Conference, the official Xinhua news agency reported. The Communist party’s central disciplinary body said earlier this month it was probing Su for “disciplinary violations,” generally a euphemism for corruption.
