China’s ruling Communist Party is expected to hand a third five-year term to Xi Jinping.
The historic move is due at a Communist Party Congress in Beijing beginning on 16 October – one of the most important meetings in the party’s history.
The decision – which comes after a two-term limit was abolished in 2018 – would further tighten his grip on China.
It is possible that the 69-year-old president, who is arguably the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong in the 1970s, will remain in power for the rest of his life.
