China’s National Congress  Re-Elects Xi Jinpingas President

Xi Jinping was elected Chinese president for the second time and chairman of the Central Military Commission of China on Saturday morning at the first sessions of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC).
Xi took the oath of office after the announcement of the voting’s result in the Great Hall of the People. Oaths of allegiance was added to the Chinese Constitution only a week ago and it was the first time for President Xi to pledge oath.
On Saturday’s session, Wang Qishan, who was the secretary of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of China within the past five years, was elected as the vice president.
Meanwhile, Li Zhangshu was elected chairman of the 13th National People’s Congress (NPC) on Saturday’s morning session. 
Xi’s re-election for the second round was beyond doubt. NPC voted last week to amend the constitution of China to remove presidential term limits, based on which Xi can stay as president indefinitely.
Xi received a standing ovation after winning all 2,970 votes. The vice president won 2,969 votes, only one against him. In his first round in 2013, President Xi had received 99.86 percent of votes (2,952) as one was against and three were abstentions. This year he won 100 percent. Reported By: Hujjatullah Zia
