  • The Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, sometimes also referred to informally as the "Prime Minister", is the Leader of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, who is the head of government and holds the highest rank in the Civil Service of the People's Republic of China. This position was originally known as Premier of the Government Administration Council of the Central People's Government and changed to its current name in 1954. The Premier is formally approved by the National People's Congress upon the nomination of the President. In practice, the candidate is chosen through an informal process within the Communist Party of China. Both the President and the Premier are selected once every five years. The Premier has always been a member of the powerful Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China.
