BEIJING: Former Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has died at 68, according to CCTV.

Li was the second-most powerful man in the ruling Chinese Communist Party until he retired in 2022.

He had been “resting” in Shanghai when he suffered a sudden heart attack on Thursday, according to the state media.

He passed away ten minutes past midnight on Friday despite “all-out efforts” to revive him, CCTV said.

An economist, Li was initially given the reins of China’s economy, but analysts said he became increasing sidelined towards the end of his career as Chinese President Xi Jinping gathered power around himself, BBC reported.
