Liu Qibao ([1] Previously Liu have served as the party chief of the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and Sichuan province.


Liu Qibao was born in a village near the banks of the Wan Li, then provincial Party Secretary of Anhui.

In 1980, Wan Li was transferred to work for the central authorities in Beijing. Liu was sent to work for the CYL Anhui Provincial Committee, where he gained rapid career advancement. He led propaganda and ideology work at the CYL, eventually rising to lead the provincial CYL organization. In February 1984, he became mayor of Liu Yandong, Li Keqiang, and Li Yuanchao. Since then he has been identified by some observers as part of the "tuanpai", or "Youth League faction".

Liu left the Youth League in 1993 to serve as the deputy chief editor of People's Daily, then he worked under Luo Gan and Wang Zhongyu as deputy Secretary-General of the State Council. Additionally he took on leading roles in the offices for the State Council task force on information technology, and the Central Commission for Spiritual Civilization.

Liu served as the Communist Party chief of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region beginning in 2006 and remained in that office for roughly a year.[2] He was appointed Sichuan's Communist Party Secretary in December 2007.[2] He was selected to be the chairman of the Standing Committee of the Sichuan Provincial People's Congress on January 27, 2008.[2] He served as the chief of the Communist Party of China Sichuan Committee, the province's top leader from 2008 to 2012.[2]

At the 18th Party Congress held in November 2012, Liu was promoted to the 18th Politburo of the Communist Party of China, and named head of the Propaganda Department of the Central Committee, succeeding Liu Yunshan (no relation), who became a member of the Politburo Standing Committee.
