BEIJING, May 26 (Reuters) - China's ruling Communist Party has expelled a senior official of a state-run power equipment maker for taking huge bribes in violation of the law, the party's anti-graft watchdog said on Monday.
The removal of Huang Baodong, deputy general manager of Power Construction Corporation of China, adds to evidence that the power sector could be the latest to face anti-graft probes by the government.
But the drive is also seen as a tool to remove Xi's opponents, in an unprecedented campaign that targets some of China's most high-ranking officials.
"Huang Baodong took advantage of his position to seek benefits for others, and accepted huge amounts of bribes from others," the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said on its website, but gave no details of the sums involved.
