Woman to be part of China's politics for first time in history of communist regime

Beijing , Thu, 15 Nov 2012 ANI

Beijing, Nov. 15 (ANI): For the first time in China, there are hints that a woman could get elected to the highest levels of government.

China gave its strongest indication on who will lead the country for the next decade, and for the first time in the history of the communist regime the leadership may include a woman.

According to ABC News, as expected Vice President Xi Jinping and Le Keqiang, a protege of the departing leader Hu Jintao, were at the top of the list.

It is also known that Liu Yandong, a woman thought to be in her 60s from Jiangsu province, will also be part of the leadership.

Liu is the epitome of Communist Party royalty, a princess among the many 'princelings'.

In China, the policies and personal details of politicians are a state secret. Very few people know about the biographical details such as education and former political posts of their politicians.

The appointment of a woman to top party leadership would be a notable milestone in the government's 91-year-old history.

Liu was educated at Tsinghua University, outgoing President Hu Jintao's alma mater.

She earned a masters degree in sociology from Renmin University of China.

The BBC also notes that according to a leaked U.S. cable, Liu's husband of more than 40 years, Yang Yuanxing, "once told diplomats that his wife speaks good English and is keen on photography." (ANI)
