Top Chinese paper says reform does not mean lifelong presidency

China issues fresh warning to Taiwan, says Beijing will not tolerate separatist activities

One of the most important issues of the first session of the 13th National People's Congress will be the election of state leadership, including the Chinese president.

Adding to the political stakes in China, Trump's announcement came ahead of next week's meeting of its ceremonial legislature, the year's most prominent political event. A newly drafted first clause in the constitution, in line with the "thoughts of Xi Jinping", declares that the "leadership of the Chinese Communist party is the most essential feature of socialism with Chinese characteristics".

Any attempt to challenge Xi or his thinking would be seen as defiance against the party.

This change in the way the communist party appoints its dictators is further enraging the chinese people to seek freedom from the communist party that for decades has been communist in all but name, instead in reality since its inception has been a mafia style gangster operation that has enslaved the chinese people for over 60 years!

However, the supreme power of the party is not called into question. The proposed constitutional amendment is roiling Chinese society and politics, it has deinstitutionalized the country's political system, and it will make sound governance extremely hard.

As China's main legislative body, it was expected to formally ratify the amendment to remove the term limit as well as appointment of new officials.

Last year, China exported goods worth $2.80 to the United States for every $1 of American goods it bought, according to Chinese data. The proposal sparked off concern and speculation at home and overseas that Xi, heading the CPC and military besides the presidency, who recently began his second five-year term would continue for an unprecedented third term and beyond, wielding unquestionable power exercised by the party founder, Mao Zedong in the heydays of China's revolution.

Still, a number of prominent Chinese figures have publicly protested the move, despite the risk of official retaliation.

The almost $20 trillion economy gives the United States leverage to extract better trade terms from other nations and "fairer treatment for American workers", the report said, echoing a point that Lighthizer has stressed. Then in 1966, Mao launched the Cultural Revolution. His airbrushed, blemish- and nearly-wrinkle-free face often dominates the front pages of state newspapers. At that point, Xi would be 80 years old.

Became known, who became President of Armenia
He has pledged, among other things, to strive to heal what he sees as serious divisions existing within the Armenian society. Outgoing Sarksyan became president in 2008 and nominated former prime minister Sarkissian to succeed him in January.

On February 25, 2018, Xi Jinping took a decidedly different approach. Xi Jinping may wish to amend it and say, "The future of the world is closely linked to the future of China".

Xi has also overseen an expansive anti-corruption crackdown that some perceive as at least in part a purge of his rivals.

Ultimately, however, I think the comparison is unfair on Winnie the Pooh.

Xi's power grab will be seriously tested by how he tackles grave challenges at home and overseas. The editorial also had a word of caution for India, "For India, which had to deal with an aggressive China in Doklam, and manoeuvre against its rising influence in South Asia, the lack of checks and balances on Xi is a worrying sign".

Thus, Trump said he has chose to impose tariffs of 25 percent on foreign-made steel and 10 percent on aluminum for an unlimited period.

By itself, the end of this term limit is relatively unimportant. New policies concerning the people's livelihood may be released. Is it true that all they really fear is only that Xi might stay in office longer than Tony Blair did (ten years)?

"What it does reveal is Xi Jinping is creating and deepening a moral hazard that now people will not want to say anything to contradict him, not only in public but even in private", Tsang said.

Chinese officials have appealed to the White House since last March to avoid hurting both sides by disrupting aluminum trade.

The effects of the abolition of the presidential term limit are bound to be bad.
