Police chief promoted to Shanghai vice mayor

ZHANG Xuebing, former director of Shanghai Public Security Bureau and mayor assistant, was elected vice mayor this afternoon by 850-plus local legislators.

Zhang, 55, a native of Shandong Province, started his political career as deputy Party secretary of downtown Luwan District in 1995. He was appointed the city's police chief in February 2008.

Before his role as police chief, Zhang had served as the governor of the Pudong New Area for nearly four years and deputy director of the Executive Committee for the Shanghai Expo.

Zhang graduated from a district-level university in 1984 with a bachelor's degree and earned his Master's degree at the East China Normal University majoring in economics.

Also yesterday, Hu Yanzhao retired from his job as Shanghai vice mayor and was elected as vice chairman of the Standing Committee of the Shanghai People's Congress.

Shanghai has eight vice mayors in total: Yang Xiong, Tu Guangshao, Tang Dengjie, Ai Baojun, Shen Jun, Shen Xiaoming, Zhang Xuebing and Zhao Wen.
