官二代 (guān èr dài): Generation of the officials’ children; governing second generation

Bo Guagua, son of former Chongqing Party Secretary Bo Xilai, is a prime example of this generation.
Just as families hand down wealth from generation to generation (see rich second generation), they also pass down the keys to political power.

One prime example of this is Bo Guagua, the son of former Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee of Chongqing Bo Xilai. Photographs of the younger Bo embracing British women in various degrees of inebriation have recently made the rounds of the Chinese blogosphere.

Sometimes the children of officials are referred to as princelings or members of the Crown Prince Party.
