Chu, a member of the Party Central Committee, the provincial Party chief, and head of the province’s National Assembly delegation, will leave the Party Central Committee and step down from the post of provincial Party chief in the 2015-2020 tenor. He will be assigned other tasks, the Politburo said in a statement.
In June, Chu had tendered his resignation to the Politburo, aimed at strengthening personnel for the province’s Party Congress for the 2020-2025 tenure, which will take place by the end of the year.
