Li Peiyao (Chinese: 李沛瑤; June 1, 1933 – February 2, 1996) was a Chinese politician. He was born in Cangwu County, Guangxi, the son of Li Jishen, the founder of the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang (RCCK), a breakaway faction of the Kuomintang that cooperated with the Communists. He served as Chairman of the RCCK from 1992 to his death in 1996 and a Vice-Chairman of the National People's Congress Standing Committee from 1993 to 1996.

In February 1996, Li was killed by Zhang Jinlong, a security guard from the People's Armed Police (PAP). According to court documents, the 18-year-old Zhang entered the home of Li and was in the midst of attempting a theft when Li came home and discovered the scene. After a physical struggle, Zhang repeatedly chopped Li with a cleaver he found in the home kitchen, and Li bled to death. Zhang then continued looting Li's apartment, carrying with him an expensive camera, a leather jacket, and other goods out of Li's home. He was discovered by a neighbour who reported the incident to police. Zhang was arrested and sentenced to death.[1] PAP lieutenant general Ba Zhongtan retired as a result of the incident.[2]
