The posts of two district level officials in Shanghai had changed, a spokesman of Shanghai municipal government said on Saturday, in response to question about the officials' removal from their posts.
The officials are Jiang Yaxin, director of Huangpu District and deputy secretary of the Huangpu District Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), and Li Yuyi, secretary of the CPC Jinshan District Committee.
