Wang Maoshe (simplified Chinese: 王茂设; traditional Chinese: 王茂設; pinyin: Wāng Màoshè; born August 1957) is a former Chinese politician who served as the Communist Party Secretary of Yuncheng, a city in Shanxi province, between 2013 and 2014, and prior to that, party chief of Shuozhou. He was investigated for corruption and was expelled from the Communist Party of China in 2015.


Wang was born and raised in the town of Hechuan of Anze County, Shanxi Province. He graduated from Shanxi Agricultural University.

Wang joined the workforce in July 1975, and joined the Communist Party of China in April 1982.

In December 2007, Wang was appointed the Deputy Party Secretary and Vice-Mayor of Jincheng, he was promoted to become the Mayor of Jincheng in April 2008.[1] In February 2011, Wang was transferred to Shuozhou as the CPC Party Chief, a position he held until February 2013, when he was transferred laterally to become the party chief of Yuncheng.

On June 4, 2014, it was announced that Wang was as being investigated by the Party's internal disciplinary body for "serious violations of laws and regulations".[2][3][4]

After Wang was sacked, the party chief position in the city of Yuncheng, one of the "corruption disaster zones", was not filled for over a year, the longest such vacancy for any municipal party chief since the anti-corruption campaign began in 2012. He was succeeded by Henan native Wang Yuyan in August 2015. In the same month, Wang was expelled from the Communist Party; the report of his wrongdoing was authored by the Shanxi Commission for Discipline Inspection. He was accused of "vote-buying", adultery, taking bribes, and "continuing to take bribes after the 18th Party Congress".[5]

Wang was a member of the 11th National People's Congress. Chinese media reported that Wang had close relations with two officials: Ling Zhengce and Du Shanxue.[6]
