China's National People's Congress voted to abolish presidential term limits in Beijing on Sunday, allowing President Xi Jinping to rule indefinitely. Almost 3,000 delegates cast their ballots on a series of constitutional amendments, including one proposing the removal on the restriction that had limited the presidency to two consecutive five-year terms. Out of 2,964 ballots, just two... Еще delegates voted against the change and three abstained. The move has been justified as a necessity to align the presidency with Xi's two other posts — head of the party and the military — with no formal limits on time served in both positions. «This is an important measure to strengthen the national leadership system. It's commonly known as 'Trinity' — and it includes heads of the party, the army and the country,» said the head of the legislature's legal affairs committee, Shen Chunyao, commenting on the results.
