TAMPERE, Finland, October 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
On November 8, 2012, the Communist Party of China will convene the 18th Party Congress, during which the new Central Committee will be elected. The Central Committee, in turn, elects the 25-member Politburo, from whose members the Standing Committee, China's top decision-making body, are chosen. Xi Jinping, a member of China's fifth-generation of political leaders, is widely tipped to replace General Secretary Hu Jintao.
"Whoever is chosen as General Secretary becomes the President of the second largest economy in the world. This change in China's top leadership, especially with the US presidential elections on November 6, will have a profound effect on what happens on the global stage. " Jussi-Pekka Koskiranta, Editor-in-chief of gbtimes, explains.
"To most people, China's political system is still somewhat of a mystery, so this is an opportunity for them to observe how it works. Does China have a Constitution? Do they have an election or a selection? Is China a democracy? These are questions that people are trying to find an answer to," Jaycee Lui, Senior editor of gbtimes, points out.
According to Lui, the Third Angle special report on China's leadership change "is a chance for us to address these questions and lay to rest some misconceptions that people might have."
