BEIJING, June 14 (Xinhua) -- "Cheng Junrong, 862 votes."
With the announcement of the voting results, 877 delegates of the provincial congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in east China's Jiangsu Province witnessed the moment when Cheng Junrong, a migrant worker, was elected to be one of 2,270 delegates to the CPC National Congress to be held later this year.
Cheng, who hails from a village near Jiangsu's provincial capital of Nanjing, started working at the Nanjing-based Chinese People's Liberation Army No. 5311 Factory after finishing junior middle school in 1994.
Cheng is the province's first migrant worker delegate elected to the CPC national congress and the only migrant worker among the province's 70 delegates elected to this year's national congress.
"I was a little surprised when I was finally elected. But as one of our country's hundreds of millions of migrant workers, I consider it to be more than an honor," he said.
Cheng's success came after undergoing multiple election procedures, including the nomination of candidates, qualification checks, the public notification of the candidates, shortlisting and final voting.
The process began with 22,718 grassroots CPC units under the Nanjing municipal CPC committee nominating 7,375 people as candidates.
After selections by CPC committees at various levels, the Nanjing municipal CPC committee worked out a nomination list of seven people, including Cheng, for the provincial committee.
