Liu Lizu (Chinese: 刘礼祖; born July 1955) is a provincial Chinese politician from Jiangxi province. Between 2012 and 2016, he served as the Vice-Chairman of the Jiangxi Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. He was expelled from the Communist Party of China and demoted after a party investigation.

Born in Yifeng County, Jiangxi, he joined the Communist Party in 1978, and completed two degrees from the Central Party School.[1] He had a long career as a government official, serving as the mayor of Fuzhou, Jiangxi, the deputy head of the Jiangxi Economic and Trade Commission, and the director of the provincial bureau managing small to medium-sized businesses. Beginning in March 2004 he served as the director of the Jiangxi Department of Forestry. Beginning in 2008 he became a deputy to the National People's Congress.[2]

In January 2016, Liu was removed from his position, thought to be implicated in the corruption case surrounding former Jiangxi party chief Su Rong.[3] He was expelled from the Communist Party and demoted to keyuan. At the time of his demotion, he was at the retirement age for sub-provincial level anyway, so this amounted to essentially a loss of retirement benefits accorded to his rank; the demotion was especially severe as keyuan is the lowest level in the Chinese civil service hierarchy, roughly equivalent to an entry-level position.[4]
