Jinping was unanimously elected as the President at the ongoing session of the 13th National People's Congress making way for his second term in the office.

Prior to that, 28 lawmakers had opposed Xi Jinping's candidacy for Vice President in 2008.

Wang Qishan 王岐山, the trusted adviser to Xi who, according to decades-long retirement norms, wasn't even expected to be still in power after past year, is set to become possibly China's most powerful vice president ever.

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

"Really no one is going to shout and moan too much" because growth and stability are considered so important, Brown said Friday in a talk to foreign media in Beijing.

Xi is expected to expand his yearslong campaign against corruption within the Communist Party to include all state employees through the creation of a new National Supervisory Commission, while continuing to pursue a muscular foreign policy and policies to upgrade the slowing economy.

Now, the National People's Congress, China's parliament, has incorporated the thought into the state constitution. By that time, Xi will be 97 years old.

One indication of Xi's attitude toward China and the rest of the world was provided when he visited Mexico as vice president in 2009, during the global financial crisis.

The Central Committee also proposed writing Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era into the national constitution alongside the schools of thought of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping.

"The voyage of a great country can not do without a helmsman", it said in an editorial.

Almost 3,000 Chinese lawmakers were almost unanimous in their approval on Sunday, 11 March, of changes to the state constitution that included removing the term limit on the presidency.

China's rubber-stamp parliament unanimously handed President Xi Jinping a second term and elevated his right-hand man to the vice presidency, giving him a strong ally to consolidate power and handle USA trade threats. Wang's previous role was as the party's chief anticorruption enforcer.

The way Wang was presented on state TV during his swearing-in ceremony, India Today reporter Ananth Krishnan noted, essentially confirms that he is the "8th Politburo Standing Committee member for all intents and purposes".
