Shandong natives take most seats in reshuffle (2)

Though many officials were born in the regions, they registered as officials originating from other parts of the country, he said. And many from the regions, especially Guangdong, are more interested in business than politics.

On the list of the committees, 29 officials, or 7.1 percent, are from Hebei province and 28 are from Zhejiang province.

"Zhejiang officials have made great contributions to the province's economic boom, and Hebei officials are experts in interpersonal skills," Mao said.

The reshuffle of local Party leadership has also brought younger and better-educated officials onboard.

Among the new lineup, 118 people, or 29 percent, were born after 1960.

The standing committees of the Xinjiang Uygur and Tibet autonomous regions have the largest number of leaders born since 1960, with seven each. Normally, a provincial standing committee only has 12 or 13 leaders.

Wang Yukai, a professor with the Chinese Academy of Governance, said the difficulties and challenges that younger officials face in ethnic regions can improve their decision-making ability.

Liang Yanhui, a professor at the Party School of the Central Committee of CPC, said the rising number of leaders born after 1960 will mean an increase in innovative ideas.

People with master's degrees or doctorates took up 74 percent of the seats and officials holding bachelor's degrees took 24 percent.

Sun Zhengcai, 49, Party secretary of Jilin province, once worked as a researcher at Beijing Academy of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences, and was chief editor of the book Research on Corn Growing in 50 Years.

Zhu Lijia, a public management expert at the Chinese Academy of Governance, said it's not a surprise to see such a high number of officials with strong academic backgrounds, as that has been a trend in recent years.

Women took 9 percent of the positions in the Party committees.

Officials of ethnic groups got 10 percent of the seats. Ethnic groups account for about 8.5 percent of China's population.
