Antigo Presidente chinês Jiang Zemin, morre aos 96 anos

By Jordi Bou

November 30, 2022 - O antifgo líder da China, Jiang Zemin, que fez o país sair do isolamento após a repressão dos protestos pró-democracia na praça Tiananmen e apoiou as reformas económicas que levaram a uma década de crescimento explosivo, moreu aos 96 anos.

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.
