Xi Jinping reappointed as Chinese president with no term limits

Xi Jinping was reappointed Saturday as China’s president with no limit on the number of terms he can serve.

Xi, 64, is considered the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong and last Sunday was given the right to continue in office indefinitely after the legislature scrapped term limits for the president and vice president.

Chinese officials defended the move saying it would bring the presidency in-line with Xi’s other two main positons of head of the ruling Communist Party and commander of the armed forces.
