Chinese Premier Li Keqiang appointed to second 5-year term

China's Parliament re-elected Xi Jinping as the country's president and also the chairman of Central Military Commission of the People's Republic of China on Saturday, making way for his second term in the office.

Polish President Andrzej Duda has extended his congratulations to China's Xi Jinping after his re-appointment for a second term as the country's president on Saturday.

Television footage from the Great Hall of the People in Beijing showed some weeping with delight...

Cao said Wang paid particular attention to whether party cadres had sufficiently understood the spirit of the October Party Congress including "how to understand and get a handle of new areas of societal problems, the public's aspirations toward a better life, and uneven and insufficient economic development".

Last Wednesday, Mr Wang Yang was also unanimously elected chairman of the top political advisory body, the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Now, the National People's Congress, China's parliament, has incorporated the thought into the state constitution.

There are more than 30,000 fixed-odds betting terminals around the country, which now have a maximum stake limit of £100. Charity GambleAware said it welcomed the commission's "contributions to the ongoing discussion".

With pictures of ecstatic citizens standing in applause, happily tearful legislators and even a social media game, China's propaganda drive has kicked into high gear following Xi Jinping's unanimous reappointment as president. The move comes after the Chinese parliament made a decision to do away with the two-term limit on the Chinese president allowing Xi to rule as long as he wishes to.

Moments after the vote, the party's People's Daily newspaper proclaimed Xi as China's "great helmsman" in an alert to mobile phones.

This will allow Xi to continue as president beyond his term limit of 2023. Wang's previous role was as the party's chief anticorruption enforcer. The post becomes especially relevant as the burden of passing new legislation is expected to mount, in tune with President Xi's focus on "rule of law" as the template for China's governance in the "new era".

Not only will he have to deal with a looming trade war with the U.S., but Washington has also named China as its strategic competitor.

Critics say the move overturning a push to institutionalize China's ruling practices dating from 1982 will likely lead to increased political repression and possible infighting among party factions seeking to promote their own candidates within the closed system.
