China’s Xi Jinping set to rule for life as Parliament abolishes two-term limit for the President

 

The constitutional changes were passed in Beijing by the annual sitting of the National People’s Congress – the country’s legislature – with two-third majority. 

Of the 2,964 delegates, only two voted against the change, while three abstained.

Earlier, the seven-member Standing Committee – the top most body of the ruling Communist Party of China – had unanimously approved the amendment.

64-year old Xi Jinping is currently in his second five-year term and due to retire in 2023 under the current two term system.
