Contendientes para la cúpula política de China

By Duncan Mil

October 23, 2022 - Solo siete hombres, entre los que 16 que compiten por integrar el todopoderosoComité Permanente del Politburó (CPP) del Partido Comunista de China (PCC), habrán de dirigir la segunda mayor economía del mundo.

On Sunday (October 23), a day after China’s Communist Party congress concludes, the newly elected 200-member Central Committee will convene behind closed doors at its first plenum.

Two lists will have been compiled in secrecy, selecting members of the next Politburo, usually 25 people, and its Standing Committee, which currently numbers seven.

President Xi Jinping will lead the new Standing Committee in order of seniority along the red carpet and into a room at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.

Xi will then introduce his new team that will govern China’s 1.45 billion people for the next five years and speak about his goals and ambitions, economic, military and foreign policy.
