China Proposes Lifting Presidential Term Limit

Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this month waits for British Prime Minister Theresa May ahead of a meeting at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing. Xi is coming to the end of his first term and is expected to be appointed to a second term in March.

Currently, Chinese President Xi Jinping can serve no more than two terms. But China has proposed dropping term limits for presidents, which would allow Xi to stay in power for more than 10 years.
