Politburo of the Communist Party of China

The Politburo of the Communist Party of China is a group of 19 to 25 people who oversee the Communist Party of China. Unlike Politburos of other Communist Parties, power within the Politburo is centralized in the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China.

The power of the Politburo resides largely in the fact that its members generally simultaneous hold positions within the People's Republic of China state positions and with the control over personnel appointments that the Politburo and Secretariat have.
