On July 17, 2015, Hong Kong Oriental Daily (http://hk.on.cc/hk/) published an article on the military leadership personnel changes in China titled, “Three Phenomenon at the Center of Army Restructuring.” China Gate and some other overseas Chinese websites republished the article on July 18, 2015, with a different title, “Xi Jinping’s Big Move: Jiang Zemin’s Closest Army Allies Are No longer in Power.”
According to the article, Xi has assigned some senior military generals to insignificant positions. Over the last six months, those in the most important leadership positions in the armed forces have all been replaced. Those officials who were close to Xi were promoted.
