No more expiration date: China’s Xi Jinping can remain President forever!


The leader of China holds 3 top positions.

  1. President: The most powerful position outside the country, as he interacts with the leaders of other nations
  2. General Secretary of the Communist Party: The most powerful position within the country
  3. Chairman of the Military Commission

President Xi Jinping was supposed to hold his Presidency until 2023, when he would have served for a total of 2 terms of 5 years each, or 10 years in this position. The National People’s Congress, the group of China’s 3000 leaders, decided over the weekend, to take away the rule that says that the president must retire after 2 terms of 5 years each. So President Xi Jinping can stay on for a long long time!

What are some of the pros and cons? 

Pro – China has become even stronger under his leadership and he can have more time to put into place other policies and take China even further.

Con – That’s a lot of power for one person to have for a looooooong period of time!
