BEIJING. China’s ruling Communist Party appointed a new senior official yesterday to run Tibet, considered one of the country’s most politically sensitive positions due to periodic anti-Chinese unrest in the devoutly Buddhist Himalayan region.
Mr Wu Yingjie will replace Mr Chen Quanguo as Tibet’s next party secretary, according to Xinhua news agency. Mr Wu has worked almost his entire career in Tibet, having previously served as a deputy governor and propaganda chief, among other roles. [Source]
