BEIJING — In a sign of troubled times, China, has decided to consolidate power to Xi Jinping for the rest of his life. Over the weekend, the country’s top panel and Congressional officials met to discuss removing a constitutional rule that barred leaders from serving beyond term limits.
2,958 members of the country’s 3,000 member delegation unanimously voted for Jinping to receive consolidated power until he dies. Critics, however, aren’t thrilled at the idea and are concerned that it may lead to bloodshed like it did the first time China had a dictatorship in modern day (In the 1970’s).
Meanwhile, Jinping appeared voiceless and emotionless during the hearing. It is unknown as to how he now feels being the imperial ruler of China for the remainder of his life.
