Wang Xiaohong, a veteran law enforcement official, has been appointed China’s new public security chief ahead of a Communist Party meeting this autumn that is expected to result in a major changing of the guard among the top leadership.

Wang, 64, was appointed minister of public security on Friday, replacing Zhao Kezhi, who had served in the position for over four years, according to a statement (link in Chinese) published on the website of the National People’s Congress (NPC), the country’s top legislature.
