A post-80s official has been appointed as Party chief of Jinde county in Xuancheng, Anhui province, and nominated as the candidate for the city's deputy mayor.

Zhou Mi, 32, is a native of Anhui province. His appointment attracted media attention, as he is one of the youngest officials at bureau-level in China.

Yan Cheng, head of the organization department of the city, said: "Zhou is intelligent and creative, and is able to work in different situations."

Zhou was enrolled in the special class for the gifted young at the China Science & Technology University at 15 and graduated as a science major. He was president of the student union and started his career as deputy head of the China Communist Youth League Chuzhou city committee.

He worked his way up to deputy secretary of the Communist Youth League in Anhui province in February 2011 before the new appointment.

Zhou has worked at different positions in the universities and government departments at provincial level as well as county level.

"He has accumulated sufficient leadership experience in different positions and is enthusiastic about work," Yan said.
