Well, we finally have official confirmation that Vice Premier Huang Ju has passed away. Here is the tragedy of the final period of his life. Although it became obvious that he needed to take a break from his official duties early this year, factional imperatives drove him to continue for another few months, which otherwise would have been totally unnecessary. Because he needed to continue to signal his power and to attend crucial meetings in the run-up to the 17th Party Congress, he was compelled to make appearances at various meetings and functions until just a month ago, when it became apparent that he was on the verge of dying. In the end, the Jiang-Zeng faction will lose a vote in the Standing Committee as crucial decisions are made in the next few months.
