Topic: China province says graft probes leaves 300 jobs empty

A sweeping graft probe in the northern Chinese province of Shanxi has left the government with almost 300 jobs to fill, including several senior positions, state media said on Tuesday, giving details of the practical impact of the investigations. Coal-rich Shanxi has emerged as one of the front lines in President Xi Jinping's battle against deep-seated graft, with Vice Premier Ma Kai earlier this month describing the problem there as "like a cancer". The most senior Shanxi-connected official to fall to date has been Ling Jihua, once an aide to former president Hu Jintao. The government has acknowledged a problem of officials trying to keep their heads down and not doing much work as they try to avoid being caught up in the investigations.
