BALANCE OF FACTIONAL POWER IN CHINA: The Seventeenth Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party
Unformatted Document Text:  27 CCYL; Lieutenant General Liu Zhenlai was a member of the Eleventh Central Committee of the CCYL; and Dr. Bai Chunli is a vice president of the Youth Federation of China. Li Jinai joined the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in December 1967. He was elected a member of the Tenth Central Committee of the CCYL in October 1978 when he was Youth Section chief of the Organization Department under the Political Department in the Second Artillery Corps and was reelected a member of the Eleventh Central Committee of the CCYL in December 1982 when he was Youth Section chief and deputy director of the Organization Department. 96 It is not clear what position Liu Zhenlai was holding when he entered the Eleventh Central Committee of the CCYL in December 1982, but he was certainly a military officer then. Bai Chunli was made a standing member of the Youth Federation of China in December 1993 and vice president of the Youth Federation of China in July 1995. 97 Although Li Jinai and Liu Zhenlai might have opportunities to interact with other CCYL cadres, Bai Chunli is only a nominal cadre affiliated with the CCYL. CONCLUDING REMARKS In comparison to the Sixteenth CC elected in 2002, the Seventeenth CC witnessed dramatic changes to the factional balance of Chinese politics (Figure 3). In terms of power index, the Shanghai Gang declined substantially from 42 points in 2002 to 21 points in 2007; the Qinghua Clique also declined, from 54 points in 2002 to 34 points in 2007; the Princelings increased from 41 points in 2002 to 78 points in 2007; and the CCYL Group further expanded, from 97 points in 2002 to 149 points in 2007. In other words, the CCYL Group remained the most powerful factional group by a large margin; the Princelings emerged as the second more powerful factional group; the Qinghua Clique declined from the second to the third; and the Shanghai Gang became the weakest factional group of all. Moreover, graduates of two prominent schools in China also became prominent in the Seventeenth CC. Beida Gang became a stronger factional group in the Seventeenth CC than the Qinghua Clique. Its power index was 48 points, 14 points higher than that of the Qinghua Clique.

CONCLUDING REMARKS
In comparison to the Sixteenth CC elected in 2002, the Seventeenth CC witnessed dramatic changes
to the factional balance of Chinese politics (Figure 3). In terms of power index, the Shanghai Gang
declined substantially from 42 points in 2002 to 21 points in 2007; the Qinghua Clique also
declined, from 54 points in 2002 to 34 points in 2007; the Princelings increased from 41 points in
2002 to 78 points in 2007; and the CCYL Group further expanded, from 97 points in 2002 to 149
points in 2007. In other words, the CCYL Group remained the most powerful factional group by a
large margin; the Princelings emerged as the second more powerful factional group; the Qinghua
Clique declined from the second to the third; and the Shanghai Gang became the weakest factional
group of all.
Moreover, graduates of two prominent schools in China also became prominent in the
Seventeenth CC. Beida Gang became a stronger factional group in the Seventeenth CC than the
Qinghua Clique. Its power index was 48 points, 14 points higher than that of the Qinghua Clique.
