News: Former Inner Mongolia Political and Legal Affairs Commission Chairman and Secretary-General Luo Yonggang (罗永纲) was appointed Hubei CCPSC today.
Quick Take: Originally from Shanxi, Luo has indeed based his entire political career in Inner Mongolia since 1986. He was appointed Inner Mongolia CCPSC and Secretary-General in 2016, and took on the post of Political and Legal Affairs Commission Chairman in October 2018. In 4 April 2019 he was replaced by Lin Shaochun (林少春), the newly appointed Inner Mongolia Vice Party Secretary in March who was then concurrently appointed head of Political and Legal Affairs Commission. Luo’s specific post in Hubei CCPSC remains to be seen, but will most likely fill up the vacancy of the province’s head of Political and Legal Affairs Commission. It was left by Wang Xiangxi (王祥喜), who departed in March to become Chairman of China Energy Investment Co., a central SOE and China’s largest power company.
