Senior legislator stresses Constitution-based governance

The rise of President Xi Jinping, who is now poised to rule indefinitely after China's rubber-stamp legislature voted Sunday to eliminate presidential term limits, has changed all that, a growing number of Western analysts say.

There were already signs of Xi's desire to have his term prolonged during the 19th National Congress of the CPC in October a year ago, according to Chang.

Shen Chunyao, chairman of the Commission for Legislative Affairs of the National People's Congress Standing Committee, said the revision is good for upholding the authority and centralized, unified leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core.

Also, many plans Xi set forth in his political report to the congress were clearly not drawn up to be carried out within his remaining five years in power, Chang said, noting that some of the plans have even as far ahead as 2035 as a timeline.

"This friendship has been demonstrated, proven and affirmed in the most hard periods throughout Serbian history; we are very thankful to the people of China, and to its leadership with president Xi Jinping at its helm", Vucic told ambassador. I am a big supporter of term limits.

"To such a leader who breaks these customs, it's impossible that his Taiwan policy will follow precedent", Chang contended, forecasting that Xi will come up with more new approaches for cross-strait links.
