ULAN BATOR, Mongolia — The ruling Communist Party expelled seven prominent members and warned five others about misuse of power under deposed hard-line President Yumjaagiyn Tsedenbal.

The party in April began investigating members for excesses committed under the Stalinist regime of Tsedenbal, who ruled from 1952 to 1984.

Bowing to pressure, the Communist Party in March relinquished its 69-year monopoly on power and agreed to multi-party elections.
