Failed coup before the 19th Party Congress
- In July 2017, Chongqing chief Sun Zhengcai was removed from his post and investigated by the anti-corruption agency. Meanwhile, PLA chief of the joint staff Fang Fenghui and Central Military Commission Political Work Department head Zhang Yang were removed from their posts in late August 2017.
What we said
- Sun Zhengcai, Fang Fenghui, and Zhang Yang were purged because Xi was “stopping a coup attempt by the Jiang Zemin political faction.”
