Sunday, 04 Nov 2012 07:46 AM

BEIJING — China's ruling Communist elite have endorsed the expulsion of former high-flying politician Bo Xilai and approved final preparations for the party's upcoming congress.

The official Xinhua News Agency said Sunday that the Central Committee finished a four-day meeting in Beijing. It's the last preparatory meeting before a new leadership is unveiled at the Party Congress that opens Thursday.

Xinhua said the committee endorsed decisions to expel Bo and former Railways Minister Liu Zhijun from the Communist Party. Bo is accused of a range of misdeeds including covering up his wife's murder of a British businessman. Liu faces corruption charges.

The committee also appointed two vice chairmen to the Central Military Commission.

The Central Committee is comprised of about 370 people from the upper ranks of the party, government and military.
