President for life?


The latest constitutional change of China would allow its President to remain in power for life as the country has removed term limits of the President.

On Sunday, during China`s annual sitting of the National People`s Congress, the constitutional change took place through a voting system. Only two of them voted against the change and three abstained from taking a side, whereas 2,959 votes went for the change. Therefore, political analysts prefer to call it a rubber-stamping exercise than calling it a vote.

It is to be noted that the two-term system for the President has been in China’s constitution since the 1990s.
