BEIJING, May 31 (Xinhua) -- Zhang Baoshun, former secretary of the Shanxi Provincial Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), has been appointed as Party chief of eastern Anhui Province, the CPC Central Committee said Monday.
Yuan Chunqing, governor of northwestern Shaanxi Province, is to take Zhang's place as Party chief of northern Shanxi Province, a CPC Central Committee statement said.
Wang Jinshan will no longer be Anhui Party chief.
Zhang, born in 1950 and a native of Qinhuangdao City in north China's Hebei Province, joined the CPC in 1971. He once served as Shanxi governor.
Yuan, born in 1952, started his career as a local police officer. He later studied at Peking University and obtained a law degree.
He served in the Communist Youth League of China and the CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection before moving to Shaanxi in 2001 to become deputy secretary of the Provincial Committee of the CPC.
