"To complete the construction of a moderately prosperous society in all respects, and achieve the great renewal of the Chinese nation following the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, we must consolidate wisdom and efforts from all ethnic groups of our nation including representative figures from democratic parties and public figures without party affiliation," Yu Zhengsheng, member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, said in a congratulatory speech on behalf of CPC Central Committee when meeting with deputies to the 15th National Congress of Chinese Peasants and Workers Democratic Party on December 6, 2012.

On November 15, 2012, 67-year-old Yu was elected member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee at the First Plenary Session of the 18th CPC Central Committee and made his way into China's top leadership.

Yu's refined speech and behavior is reminiscent of scholarly-style leaders. He has rich political experience in various posts from local to state-level. "Do practical things and solve more problems," he said. "I have no aspirations for great things. I just hope to be worthy of the country and people." This is Yu's political creed.
