“The Communist Party of China Central Committee proposed to remove the expression that the President and Vice-President of the People’s Republic of China “shall serve no more than two consecutive terms” from the country’s Constitution”

-Xinhuanet.com

On Sunday 25 February 2018, China announced its intention to remove the constitutional two-term limit for the presidency, paving the way for President Xi Jinping to govern beyond 2023. This is a departure from the 1980s when Deng Xiaoping took the lead in instituting retirement rules for the country and party’s senior positions.

Mr Chan will be discussing what it means for China, its neighbours and the world in view of the changes. All opinions expressed are in his personal capacity and off the record. They do not reflect the position of Young China Watchers nor any other agency nor organisation that Mr Chan is affiliated with.

We invite Chan Heng Wing, senior advisor at Milken Institute Asia Center to discuss.
