China Plans Scrapping Presidential Term Limits.

China’s ruling party is considering scrapping term limits for the president and vice president, it announced on Sunday.

The Communist party of China has proposed to change the country’s constitution so that the president and vice president can serve more than two consecutive terms.

Currently, there is a limit of two five-year terms for both presidents and vice presidents.

The amendment would allow current President Xi Jinping, 64, to be elected again during the next elections in 2023.

Although not final yet, Al Jazeera’s correspondent, Divya Gopalan, said the change is very likely to happen.

“This still has to go through parliament, but as everyone knows China’s parliament is filled with people loyal to the ruling establishment, so there’s going to be very little opposition,” she said from Hong Kong.
