Since he was arrested by Communist Party authorities, however, speculation has grown over his role in the political rise of Bo Xilai, Dalian's former mayor. According to Xu's own testimony, it now seems, he was one key member of a shockingly well-organized shadow government. A Communist Party source close to Xu Ming's interrogation process has spoken with NTD's sister media outlet, The Epoch Times, described some of what Xu has so far revealed. The source from the Chinese Communist Party's Central Commission for Discipline Inspection said that Xu Ming, under questioning by central Party authorities, has substantially confirmed both is own role and that of other key figures in Bo's plans to take over the central leadership. Among those he named were Xia Deren, Communist Party vice-Secretary for the Province of Liaoning which Bo once headed, and nephew of former Party Chairman Jiang Zemin. The same source has described Xu Ming as confessing evidence that links Bo Xilai to current Party security head Zhou Yongkang, and to both men's plan's to launch a coup if necessary to bring Bo into power as the Party's leader. Two former mayors in Dalian and the head of the Bank of Dalian were also allegedly named as accomplices in the coup effort. The alleged name list would prove shocking if confirmed. However, analysts say that it simply reinforces existing knowledge about those seen as benefiting from Bo's rise, and who would have been prepared to stake their own futures on his success. Now that his star has fallen, some analysts say, there will likely be a scramble to reveal as much information as possible to central authorities, as former alleged coup accomplices make bids for protection and to salvage their own careers.
