Military reshuffle ahead of power change
BEIJING — China’s defense ministry announced Thursday further reshuffling of the top military bosses, reflecting bargaining among the country’s top leadership ahead of a power transfer next month.
Zhang Youxia, 62, a general thought to have close ties with Xi Jinping, who is set to take over as leader of China’s ruling Communist Party next month, became head of the Armaments Department, which oversees weapons procurement.
The appointment clears a path for the department’s previous head, Chang Wanquan, 63, to become a vice chairman of the Central Military Commission. Gen. Chang is considered to be a protege of outgoing Communist Party leader Hu Jintao.
The Politburo is set for a major reshuffle at the party’s congress next month.View Entire Story
