Five provincial-level administrative regions got their new top officials on Tuesday, as the reshuffling of key positions within the ruling Communist Party of China continued.

Hu Chunhua was appointed Party chief of the southern export powerhouse of Guangdong, replacing reform-minded politician Wang Yang, according to a Party announcement.

Hu, born in April 1963, is one of the only two newly elected members of the Party's core leadership - the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee - who are younger than 50. The other member, the Party chief of Chongqing municipality Sun Zhengcai, is five months younger than Hu.
