The most frequently mentioned candidates to succeed Deng Xiaoping are: * President Jiang Zemin, 68, the early favorite, holds all three top positions in the state and Communist Party. He became designated successor in 1989 when Deng Xiaoping named him as the "core" of the third generation of Communist leaders. * Premier Li Peng, 66, a long shot, is the main hope of the hard-line faction of the party. But he lost key support with the death of senior leader Chen Yun in April.
