[NTDTV, Beijing time, July 01, 2022]The three-day Beijing 13th Party Congress ended on June 30, and Cai Qi was elected as the secretary of the Municipal Party Committee. So far, all the party committee secretaries of 31 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities directly under the Central Government have been re-elected, and who among these local key officials can become members of the Standing Committee of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has attracted much attention.
According to the official media of the Communist Party of China, the first plenary meeting of the 13th Beijing Municipal Committee elected Cai Qi as the secretary of the municipal party committee on June 30, and Chen Jining and Yin Yong as the deputy secretaries of the municipal party committee. The 13th Party Congress in Beijing, which lasted for three days, came to an end.
With the completion of the general election in Beijing, the party secretaries of China‘s 31 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities directly under the Central Government have all completed the elections before the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, and a total of 119 people have been newly elected to the provincial party committee standing committees. Among them, there are 41 new members of the “post-70s” standing committee.
Among these local dignitaries, who can enter the highest authority, the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China, at the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China this fall, has attracted much attention from the outside world. There is speculation that Li Qiang, a close confidant of Xi Jinping and newly elected secretary of the Shanghai Municipal Party Committee, is most likely to become a permanent member.
According to past practice, since 1989, successive Shanghai party secretaries have all become members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee (except for Chen Liangyu who was imprisoned when he was in office), and the recent Shanghai party secretaries who have been promoted to the Politburo Standing Committee include Yu Zhengsheng, Xi Jinping and Han Zheng , without exception, directly into the normal.
If the above-mentioned practice is followed, Li Qiang, the current secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, is very likely to join the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, but the controversy caused by the epidemic in Shanghai this year has added suspense to Li Qiang’s admission.
As a close associate of Xi Jinping, Li Qiang faithfully implemented Xi Jinping’s “dynamic clearing” of the epidemic prevention policy. Due to the severe lockdown for two months, Shanghai’s economy has not only been severely damaged, but it has also aroused considerable criticism from all walks of life. However, Li Qiang announced a few days ago that he had won the “Shanghai Anti-epidemic Defense War”, which is considered to have sent a signal to the outside world. If there are no other accidents, he should still be a regular.
Cai Qi is also a close confidant of Xi Jinping, and it is said that he may also enter the next session of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China. However, when Cai Qi made a report to the party congress recently, the sentence “normalized epidemic prevention policy will be implemented in the next five years” caused social controversy. affect its regularity.
According to the unwritten rules of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (remain at 67 and retire at 68), only Li Zhanshu and Han Zheng should retire because they are over the retirement age. With the number of seven standing members unchanged, there are currently only two vacancies on the Politburo Standing Committee. But outsiders speculate that in addition to Li Qiang and Cai Qi, there are Hu Chunhua, Ding Xuexiang, and Chen Miner who meet the conditions for admission.
Since the power struggle at the top of the CCP has always been operated in a black box, it is estimated that the answer will only be found after the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China.
