The first Vice-Premier of the state Council of the PRC Zhang gaoli appointed head of the office for organizational matters in the Central Commission for integrated civilian-military development. About it reports The South China Morning Post.
As the newspaper notes, this is a rather unusual move by President XI: as a rule, such positions are assigned to less senior officials who are not members of the Politburo standing Committee.
Experts, which refers to the newspaper, believe that the appointment of Zhang due to the fact that facing the head of the organizational task extremely difficult. He should coordinate the interests of civil and military structures occupying a high position in the party hierarchy.
The Central Commission for integrated civilian-military development was established in January 2017. She makes decisions and coordinates actions at the Central level in the civil and military spheres simultaneously and is responsible only to the Politburo of the Communist party of China and its standing Committee. The Commission is headed by the Chairman of the PRC XI Jinping, Vice-chairmen — members of the standing Committee of the political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee Li Keqiang, Liu Yunshan and Zhang gaoli. In addition, the Commission is composed of the members of the Politburo, MA Kai, Meng sangju, Li Zhanshu, Xu cilan and fan Changlong.
