About Li Qiang
The former Communist Party chief of Shanghai, the largest megacity in China, was Li Qiang.
At the National People’s Congress, the 63- time-old earned nearly all of the votes from the,900 delegates present.
He’s regarded as a realist who’ll be charged with recovering the faltering nation’s frugality. He’s a close supporter of President Xi.
No journalists were allowed in the room while the rubber- stamp congress of China cast votes. Mr. Xi’s vote was met with cheers.
Only three delegates opposed Mr. Li’s election, while eight withdrew, giving him an aggregate of 2,936 votes.
He also took a pledge, pledging to be pious to China’s constitution and to
“work diligently to construct a prosperous, strong, popular, civilized, harmonious and noble ultramodern socialist country”.
When President Xi was the party chief of Zhejiang fiefdom in the early 2000s, Mr. Li served as his chief of staff. Mr. Li was appointed Shanghai’s party clerk in 2017.
He oversaw Shanghai’s rigorous lockdown during the epidemic, which made it delicate for some individuals to get food and medical attention.
About President Mr. Xi
AfterMr. Xi successfully ran for chairman for a record-breaking third time on Friday, he was appointed.
As China reopens after the chairman’s severe zero- Covid policy, which augmented anti-government screams, the administration has come more secure. The nation’s declining birthrate is another issue that hinders its economic growth.
This week’s” Two Sessions” of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference( CPPCC) and the National People’s Congress( NPC) are precisely followed because they offer an exercise of the direction China may take in the times to come.
Chinese chairpersons had been barred from serving further than two terms since Mao Zedong. Since Chairman Mao, Mr. Xi has had a reach that hasn’t been matched. In 2018, he changed this restriction, making him an important figure.
Being the General Secretary of the Communist Party and the Chairman of the Central Military Commission gives Mr. Xi his authority( CMC).
At a party congress in October of last time, he entered both positions.
Washington and Beijing continue to have tense relations, which were lately underscored by claims that China was using balloons to spy on the US.
According to Ian Chong, a political scientist at the National University of Singapore,” whether a strengthened Xi and increased centralization are acceptable to address these challenges- or conceivably make them worse is unclear and maybe not knowable.
In a way, he said, Xi is” wagering” that the party’s centralization under his leadership would be the answer to these colorful problems.
Meanwhile, on Friday, Han Zheng, a 68- time-old former member of the Politburo Standing Committee, was named vice chairman by the public assembly.
Since the position’s role needs to be clarified, its value varies. Yet according to Chong, Wang Qishan, the former vice chairman, led Mr. Xi’santi-corruption trouble.
He noted that it’s likely that Mr. Han will faithfully cleave to Mr. Xi’s instructions and apply the chairman’s regulations as applicable.
