President Xi Jinping stands higher in China: The Communist Party of China is readying to remove from the constitution the clause reading “the President and Vice-President of the People’s Republic of China shall serve no more than two consecutive terms”.
The proposal is expected to go before legislators at the annual session of the National People’s Congress, beginning March 5 and, is sure to be passed.
The US-led West has condemned the removal of the ruling as an “authoritarian revival”. But, as clear as daylight, is that it is the New Silk Road, otherwise known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which troubles them the most.
Admiral Kurt Titt, the head of Southcom, openly admits that the BRI is a threat to US influence. It is. And, it will inevitably lead to a new world dynamic.
The BRI will connect not only Eurasia, but also Africa and Latin America, to expand China’s influence. So too will it bring about a surge to the influence of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
Within China, President Xi Jinping already holds all the levers of State power as General Secretary of the CPC and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, after corruption charges had been leveled against those who might have stood against him.
“President Xi now controls all the economic, political and military power in China,” says a political analyst in the public broadcasting service of Hong Kong , which loosely translates into China’s eventual ascendancy in the Asia-Pacific and Indo-Pacific regions soon as well, many analysts read.
Others write of Xi Linping playing his cards brilliantly with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) that he, along with Russia’s President Putin, has swept the board clear of western influence in Central Asia and its peripheries.
With this and the expected change in his county’s constitution, the world could see President Xi Jinping steering China for at least a decade, to leave his standing higher in China than any Chinese leader since Chairman Mao Zedong
