Zhang Gaoli Gets a Seat in the Standing Committee
Stock Price of His Son-in-Law’s Company Shoots Up
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) seven new Politburo
Standing Committee members appeared publicly.
Straight away, stock in the company belonging to Zhang Gaoli’s
son-in-law company became very popular.
The increase of stock price exceeded the Hang Seng Index.
Some commentators said that Zhang being a member of the
Standing Committee means the corrupt combination of CCP’s power and wealth will continue until the regime collapses.
Li Shengpo, Zhang Gaoli’s son-in-law, is the majority
shareholder his company called “Xinyi Glass”.
Li Shengpo is also son of Li Shengxian, who is the CCP’s
Politburo members on behalf of Hong Kong.
The Stock price of “Xinyi Glass” shot up on November 16th.
The closing price is 4.55 Hong Kong dollars per share with
an increase of 2.48%.
People think the rising stock price of “Xinyi glass” is completely
related to Zhang Gaoli’s election into the Standing Committee.
Commentator Li Zixu: “As soon as Zhao Gaoli earned a seat in
the Standing Committee, the stock price of his son-in-law’s company shot up.
The reason is that people all know about
CCP’s corrupt system and rules of game.
They all know that 『Xinyi Glass』 is going to make generous
profit unless the CCP collapses or Zhang Gaoli loses power.”
Securities Firm Kingston has confirmed that “Xinyi Group”
has been actively expanding in Jiangmen, Wuhu and Tianjin.
Xinyi is planning to found a firm in Tianjin,
producing car glass.
Before Zhang Gaoli was promoted,
he was the CCP head in Tianjin City.
When Zhang Gaoli took an office in Shenzhen,
Zhang’s daughter married Li Shengpo.
Six months later, Li Jiancheng, who also had a history with
Jiang Zemin, collaborated with Li Shengpo to found “Huike System” (previously “Duotong Enterprise”).
Their customers include Hong Kong government departments,
like the Housing Department.
Li’s family took this opportunity to start investing in properties
and the stock market in Shenzhen.
Under the protection of Jiang’s faction, Zhang Gaoli and
Li Shengxian’s family dominate in both money and power in Hongkang and Shenzhen.
Li Shengpo now is Director of 17 companies in Hong Kong.
He is the Chairman of “Shengde Group”, on the Board of
“Huike Company” and on “Haotian Investment Company”.
He is also a member of the political
Consultative Conference in Shenzhen.
Lin Zixu: “It’s so normal for CCP officials to accumulate wealth
with their power.
Now China’s economic artery is firmly controlled by CCP
officials and their families.
They hold dominant shares in a lot of enterprises and also
monopolize many industries.
Anyway, enterprises under those people’s control will
never lose money.
The speed at which they accumulate wealth is extremely fast.”
After Zhang Gaoli got a seat in the Standing Committee,
he is going to become the Vice Prime Minister, in charge
of China’s economic affairs.
However, Zhang Gaoli’s capability in economic
management is suspicious.
Some commentators states that Shenzhen’s GDP went down
several percent while Zhang Gaoli was in charge there.
After Zhang Gaoli left Shenzhen,
Shenzhen’s GDP went up again.
Lin Zixu: “The polarization between the poor and the rich
is in a critical state.
Even CCP officials know that China’s political situation is very
unstable now so have been transferring money overseas.”
Zhang Gao was promoted by Jiang Zemin because he
followed Jiang’s step closely.
Zhang actively persecutes Falun Gong practitioners in
order to join Jiang’s faction.
He also supported Bo Xilain’s “singing 『red songs』”.
Once Bo Xilai fell down, Zhang immediate demonstrated his
loyalty to Hu Jintao. Zhang Gaoli is called brown-nose and fickle.
Cai Guihua, Founder of “Democracy Wall” in 1979, said there
must be a lot of transactions in political interests for Zhang
Gaoli to be promoted as a member of the Standing Committee.
Xia Ming, Profession from New York City University, stated
that the corruption of CCP is the corruption of CCP’s structure.
Now CCP’s corruption has spread to the top of the structure.
People’s discontent in China has also increased.
Xia Ming: “The CCP has been using anti-corruption as a tool
to pacify people, to prove its legality and protect its image.
However, CCP’s political factions also use anti-corruption
as a tool to attack their opponents.”
Xi Ming stated that the CCP’s new leadership has to think
about whether or not this regime still can survive.
In addition, Li Zixu said that people have found the way of
performing political reform in China is completely blocked.
If the polarization between the poor and the risk continues
to accelerate, the CCP regime will collapse soon for sure.
