China’s Communist Party (CPC) unveiled the new leadership helmed by General Secretary Xi Jinping who has been re-elected on a second five-year term in Beijing, Wednesday. During the meeting, Xi Jinping said that his return to the post of a general secretary means «not only the general approval of my work but also encouragement that will spur me on.» He added that he intends «to work hard» as... Еще well as «fulfil the mission and be worth of people’s and other members' trust.» The only other member to retain his position was Premier Li Keqiang. Other officials including Director of the General Office of CPC Li Zhanshu and State Council Wang Yang were promoted to replace retiring party members. For the first time in Chinese history, all seven members of the Standing Committee were born before the 1949 Communist revolution. Xi's re-election comes amid the party's decision earlier on Tuesday to elevate his status to the 'most powerful ruler in Chinese history since Mao Zedong' by enshrining his name and ideological concept, known as 'Xi's Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era', in the Communist Party Constitution.
