Head of Central Organization Department: Li Yuanchao
Shanghai Party Secretary: Yu Zhengsheng
Party Secretary of Hubei: Luo Qingchuan
Joe Kahn's piece from the week before the PC called the Li Yuanchao promotion into the Politburo as well as Yu's rotation to Shanghai. I speculated at the time that Li would be head of COD, but that He Guoqiang will "breath down his neck." I still think this will be the case.
Also, it's interesting that both Li's replacement in Jiangsu and Yu's replacement in Hubei are local cadres promoted up the ranks of the provincial government. I wonder if this is some kind of pattern. If so, what's the logic behind it??
Settling of account coming up soon!
