Q: If Xi Jinping manages to secure a third term, would you leave China?

If Xi gets it his way this October, he could be raised to the rank of Paramount Leader before 2022, which would basically give him full legislative and executive power, that would turn back China into a full bloomed dictatorship, just like Mao's times, minus extreme poverty. After that, the man could then stay in power virtually indefinitely, being sole in deciding whether or not to renew himself for a 4th, 5th, 6th, etc... term. He would also be able to pass laws and regulations regardless of the Central Committee's approval (as is the case today). And of course he could have anyone arrested and sentenced without the need to go through legislative protocols (which he had to so far).

He cant do a third term. Deng set the rules.

Obama could have won a third. But not allowed.

I can see the upsides and the downsides for limited terms. Especialy at the top of the chain.

Believe it or not, I rather like the UK system. Unelected elevation to the upper house after being the boss. It means the experience is not lost.

But of course, Obama and Cameron are just plain shit. Sod the people, I am now employed by the corporates that funded my election.

They are all corrupt.

These days, prc leaders usually serve two terms. I believe Xi's predecessor, Hu served two. But then there really is no such thing as laws in china at the end of the day, because it is a human above the law society with the crucial part namely judicial independence completely amiss. The Law in prc is subservient to the party, ie CCP, meaning all judges are Xi's (or whoever the party chairman is) subordinates. Obey, you live. Disobey, you are fired, most likely branded as a traitor simultaneouly.

 

What would the future of the prc den be like?

 

This article, published today, addressed OP's question.  At times I am amazed at the sychronicity of things. lol

 

This is the 2012 commencement speech of Beijing U, delivered by their alumni, Lo who  is currently the chief writer of People's Daily, ie no small potato.  

 

I thought you maybe intetested to read how and what no doubt is one of the brighest minds of prc thinks.  She majored in the arts which is what Beijing U. is famous for.

 

Below is a brief excerpt  of her putonghua speech, translated. If you can read chinese the speech is a good read. There is a photo of her in the article too.  Oh, yeah, she IS worried although her worries maynot be exactly the same as "laowais".  

 

"Dear teachers and students:

 

Good morning!

 

Thank you for inviting me for a home visit, allowing me to have the opportunity, once again, to listen to our teacher's teachings, and share your joy, my beloved schoolmates.

 

The moment I stepped through the door of my home time rewinds, the wonderful videos you made, my classmates' speeches,  teacher's speech, all had me feel that all those young stories had never gone afar. Yet, standing in front of you, dear students I can feel my age.

 

When I graduated from college in 1988, most of you weren't born yet.

 

....we had ideals in our era....  (earthizen: 1989 is the year of the infamous Beijing Tianmen Democratic Movement, and subsequent massacre)

........

 

........  (toward end of the speech)

 

When profits become the only value and the majority regard faith, ideals and morality as transactional bargaining chips I am very worried. 

 

This doubting of our traditional values and ideals,  will it become the pulverizer that deconstructs everything in our times? "

No, President Xi is a wonderful leader and person, you should study his past, how he grew up and what he did while he was in university.

It's time like this i scratch my head and ask myself "what's going through Randomguys head?".

Randomguy if you keep passing this much judgment against China and Chinese people than you need to Leave, if you need help we can do that for you.

What difference would it make. I heard that the top guy is elected in China. Much like Trump was elected by all his yes men. I'm sure even Trump will be re-elected, so why not Xi. I don't know about you; but I don't always figure in the leadership of a country as a basis to stay or go. That is the responsibility of the people who are citizens there.

does the leaders have anything to say these days anyways?

I mean, yes china is literally a dictatorship from the outside, but actually i don't think he can decide everything by himself

 

but to be honest, the protectionism here against foreigners will just get stronger no matter who is the leader, so will be bad for us no matter what.

Lets see if I can actually get the new visa stuff. I have no bachelor degree (just a similarity which they don't understand anyways), but then again I am not a teacher. all yay for the visa lottery
