CHANGSHA, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- The local legislature in central China's Hunan Province has dismissed 56 provincial lawmakers for electoral fraud.

The legislative bodies at county-level in the province's Hengyang City on Saturday accepted resignations of 512 municipal lawmakers who took bribes from the 56.

Preliminary investigation shows the 56 elected deputies to the provincial people's congress offered bribes to 518 lawmakers in Hengyang municipal people's congress and another 68 staff, with the total amount of money involved exceeding 110 million yuan (about 18.14 million U.S. dollars), according to a statement issued by the Hunan provincial legislature on Saturday.
