Hunan government announced on Sept. 7, 2009 that it would select 13 provincial department-level officials from non-Communists nationwide. This was highly praised by the public, and a large number of non-Communists applied for the jobs.
The written examination for this cadre selection was held in the Hunan Provincial Party Committee School on Dec. 24, 2009, and 368 non-Communist applicants nationwide took the examination.
Huang Jianguo, director of the Hunan Organization Department, and Li Weiwei, director of the United Front Work Department of the CPC Hunan Provincial Committee, visited the examination rooms.
