In Friday's Papers: Bo Xilai Loses Last Official Post, Ministry Denies Internet Will Be Shut Down
Bo Xilai Expelled from National Legislature
The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress said on October 26 it had dismissed Bo Xilai from his last remaining post, a seat in the top legislature. Bo was expelled from the Communist Party on September 28, and this final dismissal will disqualify him from immunity in his upcoming criminal trial. Once considered a candidate for the Politburo Standing Committee, Bo's political career crumbled after he was discovered to be involved in a massive scandal this year.
