China’s Parliament Endorses Xi Jinping For Historic Third Term As President

China parliament has endorsed Xi Jinping for a momentous third term as the president of the country.

Gatekeepers News reports that Xi secured the precedent-breaking five-year term during a parliament session on Friday.

The 69-year-old received unanimous approval from the 2,952 members of the National People’s Congress (NPC) present.

Xi who came to power in 2013, has become the longest-serving head of state of Communist China since its establishment in 1949.

Meanwhile the power of the president’s office is largely ceremonial as the real control of the Chinese government rests with the head of the Communist Party and Central Military Commission (CMC).

However, Xi currently holds both positions.

He begins his second decade of power amid a broader reshuffle of leadership roles in the state council, China’s central government, and other organisations to consolidate his control of the country’s politics.

The naming of various ministers and a premier of the country is expected in the next couple of days.
