CPC Central Committee Plenum Begins

CHINA

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China started its sixth plenum today. The closed-door meeting of senior party officials is scheduled to last until Thursday.

  • Xinhua reported that President Xi Jinping delivered a work report on behalf of the Politburo and explained a "draft resolution on the major achievements and historical experience" of the CPC in its 100-year history.
  • It will be the third so-called historical resolution in the CPC's century-long history, following seminal documents issued under the rule of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping. Its adoption is expected to set the stage for Xi's bid to defy precedent and secure a third term in office next year.
  • The CPC holds the National Congress every five years and its Central Committee typically meets for seven plenary sessions (plenums) in the interim. The next plenum will set the agenda for next year's Congress, during which Xi might seek to extend his rule.
