BEIJING, Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- The All-China Students' Federation (ACSF) and the All-China Youth Federation (ACYF) concluded their respective meetings on Wednesday and Thursday, with both groups selecting new chairmen.

Wang Xiao, executive secretary of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China, was reelected chairman of the ACYF during the plenum for the group's 11th National Committee.

Qi Xingda, an auto engineering student at Tsinghua University, was selected chairman of the ACSF at the organization's 25th national congress.

Qi, born in 1987, is a member of the Mongolian ethnic group, according to a notice on the website of the university.

Delegates from the two organizations also revised their constitutions during their meetings, which both started Tuesday.

About 2,000 delegates, including members from the ACYF, young people from all walks of life, and members from the ACSF, middle school and college students from across China, attended the two events.

Founded on May 4, 1949, the ACYF safeguards the legitimate rights of Chinese young people and organizes social activities, including volunteer programs to assist the poor.

The 91-year-old ACSF leads the nation's 100,000 student unions, involving more than 80 million college and middle school students.
