Li Peng


Li Peng
(1928– )
   Chinese communist political leader who was appointed prime minister in 1987. Born in Chengdu in the Sichuan province of China, Li was educated in Yan’an and in Moscow. At the age of 11 he was taken under the wing of Zhou Enlai when his father was executed for his participation in the communist rebellion of 1930. Trained as an engineer he worked in the Ministry of the Electric Power Industry and became vice minister of power in 1979 and minister in 1981. In 1982 he became a member of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee, and in 1985 was appointed to the Politiburo. As prime minister he supported Deng Xiaoping’s violent, hard-line response to the Chinese student-led demonstrations of 1989, and has been viewed as on the conservative wing of Chinese communism.
