Wang Xiaohong was appointed Minister of Public Security on Friday, replacing Zhao Kezhi, according to a decision adopted by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

Wang, approaching 65, started his career in the public security system in Fujian province in the late 1970s. Later, he worked for public security authorities in Henan province and Beijing respectively. In 2016, he became vice-minister of public security.

Five other central government departments - the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, Ministry of Natural Resources, Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, Ministry of Veterans Affairs and the National Ethnic Affairs Commission - also met their new ministers, according to decisions adopted by the top legislature on Friday.

Under Chinese laws, the NPC Standing Committee is authorized to appoint ministers.
