Will Chinese President Xi Jinping stay or go? Decision will be taken from this meeting of Communist Party
The ruling Communist Party of China (CCP) is going to hold its most important conference in November 2021. This conference will decide whether the current President Xi Jinping will come to power for the third time in a row or whether China will get a new President.

Reports suggest that this CCP conference will be held from November 8 to 11, in which several important proposals will be reviewed along with the party's major achievements, historical experiences, etc. This conference is considered very important as it is the last largest conference before the change of leadership.

The meeting is going to be crucial for 68-year-old Xi Jingping as he has emerged as the most powerful Chinese leader since party founder Mao Zedong. In such a situation, it is possible that he will also handle the third term. Jinping is believed to have removed the two-term limit for president in China by making a constitutional amendment in 2018. In 2016, Jinping was made a 'core leader' by the party. Earlier only Mao had got this status.

Experts watching China's politics believe that it will be interesting to see whether the informal rules by Mao's successor Deng Xiaoping will remain. Like the thing about retiring at the age of 68. Let us tell you that along with Xi Jinping, Premier Li Keqiang will also complete his two terms in early 2023. About half of the 25 members of the party's politburo will also turn 68 by October 2020.

Since assuming power, Jinping has tightened his grip on power by running an anti-corruption campaign. Many ministers, including top army officers, have been punished for corruption. However, many experts also say that on the pretext of corruption, Jinping puts obstacles in his path aside.

China has also strengthened its image regarding the ongoing border dispute with Taiwan, Hong Kong and India. In such a situation, Jinping has appeared very focused on preparing for his third term. He has started many new initiatives including 'Common Prosperity for All' for the third term. In such a situation, experts believe that Jinping wants to do everything in his favor before his third term so that no one remains against him.
