China now belongs to Xi

Xi Jinping, general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC), presented the Party’s new central leadership when meeting the press Wednesday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, Yesterday.

“I was re-elected general secretary of the CPC Central Committee. I see this as not just approval of my work, but also encouragement that will spur me on,” Xi told journalists.

He presented the other six newly elected members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the 19th CPC Central Committee: Li Keqiang, Li Zhanshu, Wang Yang, Wang Huning, Zhao Leji and Han Zheng.
All five men appointed to join Xi and Premier Li Keqiang will be too old to be part of the CPC central committee that will be appointed in 2022. This Implies the present CPC has no succession plan to take reins over from President Xi. It has been a convention is Beijing for president to appoint a successor, the rationale for it is to give the future leader time to prepare. As was the case with Hu Jintao and Xi himself. The departure from the precedent is taken by many as the sign that Xi does not see himself retiring in next five years.

What started as a war on corruption by Xi has ended up consolidated power for him in China and making him one if the most powerful man in the world. The recent enshrining of Xi – in the league of Mao – in Chinese constitution speaks volumes of the man’s ambitions to be part of history and the future of mankind. Xi’s China is getting ready to breathe fire.
