  • The Vice Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China is a high-ranking executive assistant to the Premier. Generally, the title is held by multiple individuals at one time, with each Vice Premier holding a broad portfolio of responsibilities. The highest-ranked office holder is informally called the First-ranked Vice Premier. The 1st-ranked VP takes over duties of the Premier at the time of the latter's incapacity. Current Vice Premiers, in order of rank, are Zhang Gaoli, Liu Yandong, Wang Yang and Ma Kai. In irregular instances, the position of a First-ranked Vice Premier has been named either to indicate degree of power, nominal power, or when the Premier is incapacitated and requires a full-time assistant to carry out his regular duties. The most prominent case of this is Deng Xiaoping between 1978 and 1980.
