Jiang Chunyun (Chinese: 姜春云; pinyin: Jiāng Chūnyún; born April 1930) is a retired Chinese politician most active in the 1980s and 1990s, who served as Vice-Premier, Vice-Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, and a member of the Politburo of the Communist Party of China.

Biography

Jiang was born in Laixi county, Shandong province, April 1930, and started work in 1946; he joined the Communist Party of China (CPC) in February 1947. Since then, Jiang has served as secretary-general of the Communist Party of China Shandong Provincial Committee, secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Jinan Municipal Committee, governor of Shandong province, secretary of the CPC Shandong Provincial Committee, and vice-premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China.

When Jiang was elected Vice-Premier of the State Council by the National People's Congress in March 1995, 36 percent of delegates in the Congress either abstained or voted against confirming him. This was the largest protest vote in the Congress up to that time, and may have been due to the feeling of delegates that the NPC was not being allowed the authority it was granted under the Chinese constitution.[1]

He was a member of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, a member of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Central Committees, and a member of the 14th and 15th Politburos of the Communist Party of China.
