Liu Xiaojiang was appointed deputy director of the Political Department of the PLA Navy in 1998 and has been deputy political commissar of the PLA Navy since 2001. Ding Yiping spent most of his career in the Jinan Military Region. He was demoted to deputy chief of staff of the PLA Navy in June 2003 and was appointed deputy commander of the PLA Navy in August 2006 and chief of staff of the PLA Navy in December 2006. The overlap between Wu Shengli and Liu Xiaojiang is one year; the overlap between Wu Shengli and Ding Yiping is one year; and the overlap between Liu Xiaojiang and Ding Yiping is four years. Finally, Xu Qiliang and Ma Xiantian are both professional officers of the PLA Air Force, but their overlap is limited. When Xu Qiliang was commander of the Aviation Division and deputy army commander of the PLA Air Force between 1983 and 1985, Ma Xiaotian was deputy commander and commander of the same division. When Xu Qiliang was chief of staff of the PLA Air Force between 1994 and 1999, Ma Xiaotian was deputy chief of staff of the PLA Air Force between 1997 ad 1998.

Their group cohesion index is only 13.5 points, significantly less than that of any of the factional groups mentioned above. CHINESE COMMUNIST YOUTH LEAGUE GROUP The Chinese Communist Youth League (CCYL) Group continued its prominence in the Central Committee of the CCP as a result of the Seventeenth Party Congress. There are altogether 82 people with CCYL background in the Seventeenth CC: 41 full members and 41 alternate members (Table 4).
