El expresidente chino Jiang Zemin muere a los 96 años

By Jordi Bou

November 30, 2022 - El exlíder chino Jiang Zemin, quien lideró al país fuera del aislamiento tras la represión de protestas prodemocráticas en la Plaza Tiananmen y apoyó reformas económicas que llevaron a su país una década de crecimiento explosivo, ha muerto a los 96 años de edad.

His death and the memorial ceremonies to follow come at a delicate moment in China, where the ruling party is confronting a wave of widespread protests against its pandemic controls, a nationwide surge of political opposition unseen since the Tiananmen movement of Jiang’s time.

Jiang’s successors as president, Hu Jintao – who was conspicuously removed from the CCP conference last month – and Xi Jinping, are scheduled to attend his funeral, according to a list released by the state backed Global Times.
