Breaking News: Xi Jinping Begins Historic Third Term as China’s President
China’s Xi Jinping secured an unprecedented third term as the country’s president on Friday (March 10). This momentous achievement was made possible by the unanimous vote of nearly 3,000 members of China’s rubber-stamp parliament, the National People’s Congress (NPC), who supported Jinping’s bid for the presidency.
Remarkably, there was no other candidate in the election, according to a report by Reuters. Jinping’s re-election did not stop there as he was also selected for a third term as the chairman of China’s Central Military Commission.
President of the People’s Republic of China
- Born: 15 June 1953 (age 69 years), Beijing, China
- Height: 1.8 m
- Spouse: Peng Liyuan (m. 1987), Ke Lingling (m. 1979–1982)
- Previous offices: Vice President of the People’s Republic of China (2008–2013), MORE
- Children: Xi Mingze
- Awards: Nishan-e-Pakistan
- Uncle: Xi Zhongkai
During the election, the parliament also appointed Zhao Leji as the new parliament chair and Han Zheng as the new vice president. Both of them were members of Jinping’s previous team of party leaders at the Politburo Standing Committee. These appointments are expected to further strengthen Jinping’s hold on power and consolidate his authority within the party.
It is worth noting that Jinping’s re-election is not entirely unexpected, given that he was re-elected as the leader of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) in October 2022. At that time, he became the first Chinese leader since the party’s founder, Mao Zedong, to continue in power beyond the two five-year terms.
Jinping’s victory in the parliamentary election has cemented his status as one of China’s most powerful and influential leaders.
However, Jinping’s road to a third term was not without controversy. In 2018, he removed the two-term limit on the presidency, which was previously set to prevent leaders from staying in power indefinitely. This move attracted criticism from some quarters, with some commentators arguing that it would make it easier for Jinping to become a dictator. Despite the criticism, Jinping’s supporters argue that his leadership has brought stability and economic growth to China.
As Jinping begins his third term as president, he faces several challenges, both at home and abroad. Domestically, he will need to continue managing China’s economic growth, while also dealing with issues such as rising inequality, environmental degradation, and a rapidly aging population. On the international front, Jinping will need to navigate China’s increasingly tense relationship with the United States, as well as maintain Beijing’s influence in the Asia-Pacific region.
In conclusion, Jinping’s re-election for a third term as China’s president marks a significant moment in Chinese history. His continued leadership is likely to shape China’s future for years to come, and his influence will be felt both at home and abroad. As Jinping faces the challenges ahead, it remains to be seen how he will continue to navigate China’s complex political landscape and maintain his grip on power.
