Summary/Abstract: The article aims to describe the political career of one of the most promising members of the so-called sixth generation of Chinese leaders, Hu Chunhua. Hu, a protégé of the former Secretary Hu Jintao, is currently a strong candidate for a place in the Standing Committee of the CPC’s Politburo, whose members will be officially appointed next year. However, there are several indications that Hu’s political future may not look as bright as in 2012, at the beginning of Xi Jinping’s first term of office. The conclusion of the paper therefore aims to critically assess Hu Chunhua’s chances of future promotion in the context of the changing political status quo.
