The 20th Politburo of the Chinese Communist Party (Chinese: 中国共产党第二十届中央政治局) was elected by the 1st Plenary Session of the 20th Central Committee on 23 October 2022, shortly following the 20th National Congress. It was nominally preceded by the 19th Politburo. Of the 24 members, seven concurrently serve in the 20th Politburo Standing Committee.

The 20th CCP Politburo was noted as the first to include a former Minister of State Security[1] and the first Politburo with no women in 25 years.[2] All members are Han Chinese, the majority ethnic group in the country.[3] According to party convention, party leaders aged 68 or above are not eligible to remain in the Politburo.[4] 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.[4]
