Xi Jinping is setting himself up to be ‘president for life’

Chinese President Xi Jinping secured a third term in power while bypassing his opponents and demonstrating his control over China.

“He is clearly signalling that he is running the show now and he won’t tolerate any factions that are operating against him,” ASPI Acting Head of Defence Program Alex Bristow told Sky News Australia.

“It looks like he is setting himself up to be president for life,” Mr Bristow added.
