Xi Jinping : Current Leader of China

Xi Jinping: Current Leader of China

The decision of the Chinese People's Congress removed the presidential term limit which was initially pegged for two periods. Finally officially removed on Sunday (11/3/2018) after voting. The decision of the Chinese People's Congress received almost absolute support: 2,958 agreed, 2 opposed, and three abstained.

This made Xi Jinping, the Current Leader of China, being the strongest Chinese leader after Mao Zedong following the decision of the Communist Party congress to incorporate Xi's thoughts into the party's constitution.

At the end of the congress in Beijing on Tuesday (24/10/2018), all participants unanimously included 'Xi Jinping's Thought about Chinese Socialism in the New Era' into the Communist Party's constitution.

In history, only three names were included in the party's ideology, namely the party's founder, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, but Deng's thoughts were included after he died. Now, there are many who equate Xi Jinping like Mao Zedong, because domination as a Chinese leader is unshakeable. 

Both are leaders of China, their political philosophy is also enshrined in the Chinese Constitution. Men don't talk much, nerds, who were once only known as 'husband of famous singer Li Peng Yuan', became a powerful figure.

Xi Jinping is the current leader of China, the head of state, leader of the Chinese Communist Party, as well as the commander in chief of the armed forces with two million active soldiers. If you want, Xi Jinping can now do the same thing: be president until the end of life like Chairman Mao who has a lifetime in power.
