China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA - By CHINA DAILY

Yun­nan pro­vin­cial leg­is­la­ture, in South­west China, ap­pointed Ruan Chengfa as act­ing gover­nor on Tues­day, Xin­hua News Agency re­ported.

Ruan, who hails from Hubei prov­ince, was also named deputy gover­nor of Yun­nan at a ses­sion of the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee of the Yun­nan Peo­ple’s Congress, it said.

Ruan, 59, worked for the Hubei govern­ment for 38 years, and was named the Party chief of Wuhan, the pro­vin­cial cap­i­tal, in 2011, ac­cord­ing to Yun­nan Daily.

It is the first time in his ca­reer that Ruan, who grad­u­ated from Cen­tral China Nor­mal Uni­ver­sity, has left Hubei to take a po­si­tion, Yun­nan Daily said.

The congress also ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tion of Chen Hao, who was re­lieved from his post as gover­nor of Yun­nan, Xin­hua said.

Chen, 62, was trans­ferred from the All-China Fed­er­a­tion of Trade Unions to Yun­nan prov­ince in 2014 and named gover­nor last year.

Be­fore Chen, a na­tive of Jiangsu prov­ince, be­gan work­ing for the fed­er­a­tion in 2010, he held po­si­tions in govern­ment de­part­ments in Jiangsu and Shang­hai.
