Wu Guanzheng (born August 1938) was the Secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China, an anti-corruption body from 2002 to 2007.


Wu is a native of Yugan, Jiangxi. He joined the Communist Party of China in March 1963. Wu graduated in thermal engineering from Tsinghua University in 1968. Wu was mayor of Wuhan from 1983 to 1986. He became the governor of Jiangxi in 1986, and was the Jiangxi CPC party chief from 1995 to 1997. He moved to Shandong in 1997 to become the party chief of the province and was made a full member of the Politburo the same year.

He is known to have good relationships with both General Secretary Hu Jintao and former General Secretary Jiang Zemin. Some sources consider him to be Hu's ally, while other consider him to be Jiang's. As a result, he is sometimes included in the list of people in the Shanghai clique.


  • Wu's name, when sounded phonetically, spells out a phrase that seems to say "No government official is clean (or upright)". This is a widely known irony because Wu is the head of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, the organization in charge of cracking down on corrupt officials.
