The 20th Politburo of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), formally the Political Bureau of the 20th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, was elected at the 1st Plenary Session of the 20th Central Committee of the CCP on 23 October 2022 in the aftermath of the 20th National Congress. This electoral term was preceded by the 19th Politburo. Seven of the 24 members serve in the 20th Politburo Standing Committee.
The 20th CCP Politburo was noted as the first to include a former Minister of State Security and the first Politburo with no women in 25 years. All members are Han Chinese, the majority ethnic group in the country. According to party convention, party leaders aged 68 or above are not eligible to remain in the Politburo. Prior to the Congress, CCP general secretary Xi Jinping stated that he would not be retiring, and instead would seek a third term as the paramount leader and fourth term as member of the Politburo.
