Jiang Zemin (96), former Chinese President and chairman of the Chinese Communist Party, died of leukaemia on Wednesday at his residence in Shanghai. According to Chinese media, the cause of death was multiple organ failure. 

Jiang Zemin is a Chinese politician:

Jiang unexpectedly came to power as a compromise candidate during the 1989 Tiananmen Square demonstrations when he succeeded Zhao Ziyang as CCP general secretary after Zhao was removed for his support for the student movement. As the “Eight Elders” engagement in Chinese politics dwindled, Jiang cemented his influence to become the country’s “paramount leader” throughout the 1990s.

However, Jiang was chastised for human rights violations, which led to a crackdown on the Falun Gong movement. In 2002, the CCP constitution was amended to include his contributions to party theory, known as the “Three Represents.” Jiang progressively relinquished his formal leadership positions from 2002 to 2005 (being superseded in these duties by Hu Jintao), although he continued to exert influence until much later. At 96, Jiang became the PRC’s longest-living paramount Leader, surpassing Deng Xiaoping on 14th February 2019. Jiang died on 30th November 2022, from leukaemia and multiple organ failure.

Jiang Zemin’s Professional Life:

Jiang Zemin, China’s former Leader, died on 30th November 2022, just after noon local time in Shanghai, according to state media. According to the Chinese Communist Party, he died of “leukaemia and multiple organ failure.” It said he was acknowledged “as an exceptional Leader with tremendous esteem” and “a long-tested Communist warrior.” In honour of the late Leader, state media agencies such as Xinhua and the Global Times changed their websites to black and white. Zemin’s death came when China witnessed some of its largest rallies since Tiananmen Square, with many individuals rallying against Covid restrictions. He died on 17th August 1926 at the age of 96. He is survived by Wang Yeping, his wife, two sons, and two grandkids.

Jiang Zemin’s Childhood:

Jiangsu Village in Jingde County, Anhui, was his ancestral home. It was also the birthplace of some notable personalities in Chinese academic and intellectual circles]. Jiang was born during the Japanese conquest of China. Jiang Shangqing, his uncle and foster father, died fighting the Japanese in 1939 and was regarded as a national hero during Jiang Zemin’s reign. Zemin succeeded Shangqing as his male heir after his death.

The State Council of China established two ministerial commissions to promote trade and foreign investment. Vice Premier Gu Mu presided over the commissions and named Jiang as vice chairman of both bodies, a position similar to vice minister.

Jiang Zemin’s Salary:

At the time of his death on 30th November 2022, Jiang Zemin’s net worth was believed to be $5 million. However, the actual size of his riches has yet to be revealed because China’s senior officials’ lives remain mostly secret.
