Xi Ally to Exit China's Most Powerful Body

President Xi Jinping has been consecrated as Chinas most powerful leader since Chairman Mao Zedong after his political ideology was added to the Communist Party constitution, media reports said.

Wang Qishan, who had been No. 6 in the party during Xi's first term, was due to retire from the Politburo Standing Committee under an unwritten rule requiring that anyone 68 or older step down.

Xi has rapidly consolidated power since assuming party leadership in late 2012 and then the presidency the next year.

Whether Xi was able to have his name "crowned" in the party constitution had been seen as a key measure of his power, elevating him to the level of previous leaders exemplified by Mao Zedong Thought and Deng Xiaoping Theory.

As China enters a new era, the Communist Party of China must write a new chapter of 21st century Marxism with a broader vision to achieve the goals set at the milestone Congress, Chen Shuguang, a professor with the Party School of the CPC Central Committee told state-run Xinhua news agency.


The Congress also approved the work report delivered by Xi on October 18. Deng's name was added after his death in 1997.

"Our socialist system demonstrates great strength and vitality".

The 19th Communist Party Congress, a twice-a-decade gathering of China's political elite, also selected its Central Committee, a top ruling body, and a new central discipline commission.

Hu Angang, director of the Center for China Studies at Tsinghua University in Beijing, said "a community with a shared future for mankind means a community of shared interests and development".
