China votes to let Xi Jinping stay President

12 March 2018

The president's political ideology has also been written into the constitution with his name attached, making him China's third leader after Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping to receive that honor.

The changes to the constitution were passed by China's National People's Congress on Sunday.

Since taking office more than five years ago, Mr. Xi - the son of one of the CCP's founding fathers - has managed a radical shake-up of the party and spearheaded an anti-corruption campaign that has taken down top leaders once thought untouchable.

Even before Sunday's vote, it seemed likely Xi would stick around after the end of his term - for starters, he hadn't named a successor.

Xi Jinping took over as head of the ruling Communist Party in 2012, and as President in 2013. More specifically, with constitutional amendment just introduced by Chinese Communist Party's leadership, it makes clear that it is not interested in an open confrontation with or powers in world but cooperation for mutual benefit.

The amendment offers constitutional support for supervisory commissions, their duties and powers as well as the draft supervision law scheduled to be deliberated at the session, Zheng said.

Now and in the near future, there seems no leader who could challenge a towering Xi. "Thorny issues like overhauling the health care and pension systems can no longer be put off by officials hoping his priorities will change in 2022". Political pundits are comparing Xi's rule with the founder of China who ruled the country from 1949 until his death in the year 1976.

While some scholars questioned the wisdom of the move, others said they saw value in sending the message that Xi would be setting policy for many years to come.

Likewise, the Phillies needed a veteran presence on their starting rotation and they found it at a team-friendly cost as well. Arrieta will lead a Phillies staff that includes Aaron Nola , who has already been named Phillies' opening day starter.

"In these years we have seen the rise and decline of countries and particularly the harsh reality that the Western political system doesn't apply to developing countries and produces terrible results".

At the time, Xi vowed to root out corruption following a $10 billion smuggling scandal, but ruled out political reform to confront the problem, saying he would work within the one-party structure and system of political consultation and "supervision by the masses". "We've been cut off", said a representative of a Japanese company.

Party apparatchiks have fallen over themselves to offer praise for the ascendant Xi at the ongoing parliament meeting in Beijing, but a delegate from Qinghai province - the birthplace of the Dalai Lama - may have outdone them all. China's government is tightening its grip on markets and encouraging state enterprises to grow and consolidate.

Zhao Minglin, 32, a vice-president of an investment firm in Beijing, said it was easier for Xi to carry out his ambitious vision of raising living standards in China if more power were concentrated in his hands.
