Lin Zulian, who has led Wukan, a village in Guangdong province, since his election two years ago, has been re-elected as head of the village committee.

Lin, 68, received 5,019 votes of the more than 8,248 cast on Monday - about 60 percent. Voters praised his selflessness and compassion during his previous two years of leadership in the village, which has been plagued by corruption among other past leaders.

Acknowledging the voters' trust and support, Lin described how the village has sought to end its problems - primarily development issues - through negotiation and concession.
