He served as the head of the Organization Department of the Shanghai Municipal Party Committee before he became deputy party chief.


Ying was born in Xianju County, Zhejiang province, near the city of Taizhou. He joined the Communist Party of China in April 1979. He holds law degrees from the China University of Political Science and Law and Hangzhou University. He began his career in Huangyan County, Zhejiang, working for the county industry bureau and the local police station. He then served as the mayor of the town of Chengguan (城关镇). He successively worked his way up the bureaucratic hierarchy in Taizhou, heading its public security department, then its Political and Legal Affairs Commission (Zhengfawei). He then became the police chief and Zhengfawei head of neighboring Shaoxing.[2]

Ying was promoted to the provincial government in 1995, serving as the deputy provincial police chief, then the head of the provincial office for combating illegal drugs, and the leader of an effort to combat terrorism. In July 2003, Ying was promoted to Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Commission for Discipline Inspection, and several months later the concurrent head of the provincial Department of Supervision.[2] At that time, Xi Jinping was the provincial party chief. As such, Ying has been named by political observers as a member of the "New Zhijiang Army."

In November 2006, Ying was named President of the Zhejiang Provincial High Court. In January 2008, Ying became President of the Shanghai High Court.
