China: NPC ratifies scrapping constitutional term limits for presidency

The 13th National People's Congress has ratified the decision to remove constitutional term limits for the Presidency of the People's Republic of China as it convened in Beijing on Monday. Vice Chairperson of the 12th National People's Congress Wang Chen stated: «By now, there is no stipulation of 'Standing Committee shall serve no more than two consecutive terms' in party constitution for... Еще general secretary of the Party's Central Committee and President of the Party's Central Military Commission. The relevant stipulation of the constitution for the President of the country will adopt the same as above.» Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Li Keqiang also addressed the congress, and emphasized how «China has opened its doors wider to the world.» He stressed that China will aim to «foster a world-class business environment.» Xi Jinping is currently the General Secretary of the Communist Party of China, the Chairman of the Central Military Commission, and the President of the People's Republic of China. The Presidency has constitutionally mandated term limits which the 13th National People's Congress is widely expected to remove, which would allow him to remain in power indefinitely.
