Zhang was the former vice chairman of the Standing Committee of Shanxi Provincial People's Congress, the SPP said in a statement.

The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the National Supervisory Commission (NSC) announced in March that Zhang was under investigation. He was expelled from the CPC for multiple violations on June 20.

The NSC has completed the investigation into his case and handed it over to prosecuting agencies, the statement said.
