NPC 2018: Xi Jinping readies sweeping government overhaul to empower Communist Party

China annual meeting of parliament NPC 2018: Xi Jinping readies sweeping government overhaul to empower Communist Party
Patty Aguilar | 07 March, 2018, 14:49

President Xi Jinping Sunday called the system of multiparty cooperation and political consultation led by the Communist Party of China (CPC) "a great contribution to political civilization of humanity".

"It's conducive to upholding the authority of the Central Committee of the party with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core and also to unify leadership".

The term limit was originally put in place in 1982 in an effort to prevent leaders like Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping from having lifetime tenures.

In closed-door remarks to Republicans on Saturday, Trump celebrated Xi for his recent consolidation of power and for getting rid of presidential term limits, according to CNN, which obtained a recording of the meeting.

"He's now president for life, president for life". Talking about the matter on the sidelines of a fund-raising event in Florida, Donald Trump said, "He's now President for life, President for life and he's great".

US President Donald Trump has proposed a military budget that is the largest since 2011 and focused on beefing up the country's nuclear defenses and countering the growing strength of China and Russian Federation. Faced with the backlash, the Chinese Communist Party paper denied that the amendment paves the way for Xi's life-long rule, clarifying that it "does not mean changing the retirement system for party and national leaders, and does not mean a life-long term system for leading officials". And he's great. -And look, he was able to do that.

"I think it's great", Trump added.

"But if the U.S. takes actions that hurt Chinese interests, China will not sit idly by and will take necessary measures", Zhang said.

Russian Federation could face permanent IAAF ban over doping reforms
We want those athletes back in the fold, and the world needs to know those athletes are in a system of confidence and trust'. He added that if progress was not made by the next council meeting in July, further measures should be discussed.

However, this year Zhang Yesui, a former Vice Foreign Minister, who took over as the spokesman of the NPC did not reveal any percentage of increase but defended the steady rise in China's military expenditure, saying it was consistent with China's rise.

US President Donald Trump apparently backs Xi's no-presidential-term-limit proposal.

Trump and Xi met on multiple occasions during Trump's first year in office, including a trip Trump made to China and a weekend Xi and his wife spent at Mar-a-Lago in April.

Chinese President Xi Jinping sent his senior economic adviser, Liu He, to Washington late last month in a bid to ease trade tensions with the United States.

"If the European Union wants to further increase the already huge tariffs and trade barriers to USA companies operating there, we will simply apply a tariff to their cars, which are freely floating in the U.S., "the USA head of state said on Twitter".

Early this week, Beijing rushed its top diplomat Yang Jiechi followed by Chinese President Xi Jinping's economic advisor Liu He to the United States to pacify the Trump administration to avert a "trade war" between the two countries.

"China is committed to a path of peaceful development and it pursues a defence policy which is defensive in nature".
