Xi Jinping re-elected as Chinese President

Xi Jinping was re-elected to the post of President of China at the first session of the National People’s Congress (NPC, China’s highest legislative body) of the 14th convocation in the Chinese capital.

The decision was taken by the deputies unanimously.

Xi Jinping was also re-elected as Chairman of the Central Military Council (CMC) of the People’s Republic of China.

He will become the head of state for the third time in a row, which became possible in connection with changes made to the Chinese constitution in 2018, from which the provision was removed, according to which the President of the PRC had the right to hold this post for only two five-year terms.

Also, the constitution, along with the names of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, included a provision on “Xi Jinping’s guiding ideas under conditions of socialism with Chinese characteristics.”

Han Zheng, who is currently the First Vice Premier of the Chinese State Council, has been elected Vice President of the People’s Republic of China.

Xi Jinping was born on June 15, 1953. In 2012, he became General Secretary of the CPC Central Committee, and in 2013 and 2018, Chairman of the People’s Republic of China and, accordingly, according to the existing tradition, Chairman of the Central Military Commission of the People’s Republic of China. At the 19th and 20th CPC Congresses (in 2017 and 2022, respectively), Xi Jinping was re-elected General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party.

There are no restrictions in the statutes of the CPC regarding the terms of office of the general secretary.
