Provincial anti-corruption watchdogs transferred across country

On 11 June 2019, Tibet CCPSC member and Commission for Discipline Inspection (CDI) Chairman Wang Yongjun (王拥军) was appointed Shanxi CCPSC member and CDI Chairman.

On 19 June 2019, Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) Vice Secretary-General Wang Weidong (王卫东) was appointed Tibet CCPSC member and CDI Chairman, filling the vacancy left by Wang Yongjun.

Reshuffling anti-corruption watchdogs between provinces and between province/CCDI has become a common practice since the later phase of Xi’s anti-corruption campaign—in fact, officials on vice-provincial level have all been moved across countries in a more frequent manner, in an effort to prevent the build-up of new networks by provincial officials.
