Party leaders named in five areas

Five provincial areas - Sichuan, Jiangxi, Henan, Qinghai and the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region - now have new Party secretaries, authorities said on Wednesday.

Three provinces of the areas got their new Party chiefs in a shuffle following the election of Wang Dongming, former Party secretary of Sichuan province, to vice-chair of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People's Congress.

Peng Qinghua, former Party secretary of Guangxi, replaced Wang in the Sichuan post, while Lu Xinshe, formerly Party secretary of Jiangxi, took over Peng's former post in Guangxi.

Lu was succeeded by Liu Qi, who also serves as governor of Jiangxi province. Liu, 61, has been governor since September 2016.

Liu has also served as deputy Party secretary and vice-governor of Jiangxi. He worked mostly in the chemical industry until he was named deputy Party secretary of Wenzhou, Zhejiang province, in 2003.

Peng, a native of Hubei province, served in various posts in the Organization Department of the Central Committee of the CPC for 20 years after he graduated from Peking University in 1983. The 61-year-old was named deputy director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and was then promoted in 2009 to be director of the office.

Peng had served as Guangxi's Party chief for about six years before the transfer to Sichuan.

Lu, 62, a native of Shandong province, had 27 years of experience with the country's land and resources authority before being named deputy Party chief of Gansu province in 2010. He worked in Gansu for about a year and was then transferred to Jiangxi province, where he served in various posts, including deputy Party secretary, vice-governor, governor and Party secretary.

Wang Guosheng, 62, former Party secretary of Qinghai province, has replaced Xie Fuzhan as Henan Party chief. Wang, a native of Shandong province, served in various posts in Shandong and Jiangsu provinces. He was then named deputy Party chief in Jiangsu in 2010 for three months and was then transferred to Hubei province, where he served as deputy Party secretary and governor.

Wang Jianjun, 60, fills Wang Guosheng's former post as Party secretary of Qinghai province. A native of Hubei province, he served in various posts in Qinghai for more than 30 years and was named deputy Party secretary in 2010.

Liu Jieyi, 60, China's former ambassador to the United Nations, was named head of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council. A veteran diplomat, Liu had been deputy head of the office since October.

Central authorities also announced on Wednesday that Nie Chenxi, 61, will head the State Administration of Radio and Television, a newly created government body.

Nie will retain his post as deputy head of the CPC Central Committee Publicity Department, which he took in 2016.

He worked as president of the State broadcaster, China Central Television, from 2015 to 2018.

In another development, Shen Haixiong was named head of a new conglomerate of national radio and television entities that will be established on the basis of China National Radio, China Central Television and China Radio International.

Shen, 51, is a former deputy editor-in-chief of Xinhua News Agency. He was named head of China Central Television earlier this year.
