New Mayor

Wu Wei 吴炜

Wu Wei 吴炜

Approximately two months after the apparent suicide of the last incumbent, Liuzhou has finally chosen a new mayor. That is, the party has.

吴炜 was “elected” yesterday after what appeared to be bit of struggle. with four vice-mayors having resigned and one suspended for a suspected  inappropriate relationship with a married woman other than his wife.

Mayor Wu is a native of Guangdong and was previously a deputy secretary of Liuzhou’s division of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

As ever, the real power remains with the party secretary, 郑俊康.


Party secretary Zheng Junkang congratulates Wu Wei on his “Election” “Keep away from the river”, he advises.

    Must be a great relief that Liuzhou is no longer rudderless and has its very own great helmsman again .
    As I understand it , he’s the chap who overseas the rest of municipal government ?

  2. Liuzhou Laowai Says:

    Oversees, maybe. 🙂

    It makes no difference to anything. The party secretary outranks the mayor every time.

  3. David Says:

    Aahh , maybe my slip was prophetic rather than inept ……
