Stability Agency Rises in Stature
(Beijing) – A unique but powerful agency designed to maintain social stability in China went on a recruitment drive for high-level officials this year, and sources say the reshuffle indicates a boost in its influence.
Once known as the Central Committee for Comprehensive Management of Public Security, the agency was renamed last year as the Central Committee for Comprehensive Social Management. It has recently assigned more provincial heads to lead local branches and underwent revisions to its scope of responsibilities.
