Replaced with a 68 year old close ally of Xi who retired back in 2017. Shows you where the priorities lie. Another Xi ally who has no clue about Hong Kong, it's gonna go down from here. Zhang has been demoted to Vice chief of "daily operations", which means he is still the guy who is gotta do all the work, but he has to listen to Xi's edicts coming through the new Chief, probably worse than having no job at all.

Zhang was a nasty operator but his replacement is probably just as bad
