Former Chinese Communist Party (CCP)’s general secretary Hu Jintao has a son, Hu Haifeng . Recently, a news site in China reported that Hu Haifeng was promoted to the party secretary of Zhengzhou city, Henan province.
This news was reported on Dec 17 by Dalu.com. According to this news, the CCP’s Central Committee has approved Hu Haifeng as a member of the Standing Committee of the Henan Provincial Party Committee and Secretary of the Zhengzhou Municipal Party Committee.
However, this news was immediately deleted. CCP’s media system states that Dalu.com is not an official news outlet but a private media agency.
At the same time, the CCP’s media apparatus also warned that private news outlets are not outlaws, so they should not spread rumors.
The incident about Hu Haifeng has attracted the attention of netizens. But, according to Da Ji Yuan, the CCP’s Internet regulator immediately blocked content related to the son of the former CCP general secretary.
According to TW, after Hu Jintao retired in 2012, Hu Haifeng entered politics and began working as Deputy Party Secretary of Jiaxing City, Zhejiang Province.
Three years later, Hu Haifeng became the Mayor of Jiaxing and became the youngest mayor of a provincial city in Zhejiang.
However, after Hu Haifeng was promoted to Party Secretary of Lishui City, Zhejiang Province, in June 2018, he has not been promoted so far. Meanwhile, many younger people with a lower background left Hu Haifeng behind.
