Xi could remain the helmsman
He and his successors cannot but uphold the banner of sinicisation of Marxist socialism.
At least a few months before the 19th Communist Party of China (CPC) Congress was scheduled to be held, speculations had begun about the status that the Chinese strongman Xi Jinping would accord himself. Some news reports suggested that he may decide to remain in office beyond the decade-long reign – five years of which still remain – he is supposed to have. Other news reports say he may leapfrog over two of his predecessors, former Presidents of the People's Republic of China (PRC) and general secretaries of the CPC, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, and place himself after the two stalwarts, Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping in the CPC Constitution.
