The Vice President of the People's Republic of China (), formerly Vice Chairman of the People's Republic of China, or abbreviated Guójiā Fù Zhǔxí 国家副主席, literally Vice Chairman of State) is a senior position in the government of the People's Republic of China.

Selection and Powers

The office was created by the 1982 constitution. Formally, the Vice President is elected by the National People's Congress in accordance with Article 62 of the Constitution. In practice, this election falls into the category of 'single-candidate' elections. The candidate is recommended by the Presidium of the National People's Congress, which also theoretically has the power to recall the Vice President.

By law, the Vice President must be a Chinese citizen of 45 years of age or older. He or she cannot serve for over two terms, a term being the equivalent of one session of the NPC, which is five years.

The Vice President's duties include assisting the President, and replacing him should he resign or die in office. In reality the position of the Vice-President is basically ceremonial, and only until Hu Jintao the recent Vice-Presidents have been members of the Politburo Standing Committee, China's main decision makers.
