Although China under Jiang Zemin sought to follow the Japanese example of being more European than the Europeans, President Xi has done away with such illusions and has worked to make the present century the age when Asia reclaims its space as the keystone of the world order. In India, unlike ...
Chinese leaders including Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao, and Xi Jinping have all clearly stated that “China will never seek hegemony.” Xi also further mentioned that China “is not willing to become the so-called 'world police', nor to replace anyone.” This can be taken to mean that China does not ...

After a deadly bus crash in North Korea on April 22 killed 32 Chinese tourists, Chinese state media has kept mum about details. The list of victims has yet to be published. Meanwhile, posts about the crash on social media have been deleted by internet censors. On the day of the crash, the Twitter account of ...
Chinese revolutionary and politician Deng Xiaoping coined this term in 1989 with he called Mao Zedong and himself the core leaders of their generation, and Jiang Zemin earned that title for the third generation of the CPC leadership. When Deng devised this term, China was passing through a political ...
This represents a departure from the collective leadership under Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao. Xi dominates the government and the party. His influence also extends deep into the Chinese military, which has expanded its presence in Africa and the Asia-Pacific. Media freedom has been curtailed. Opposition ...
In 1999, former Party leader Jiang Zemin launched a nationwide persecution of Falun Gong adherents, believing that the group's popularity—in 1999, there were up to 100 million adherents, according to Western media outlets quoting Chinese officials—would undermine the Party's authority.

"Of course, it was totally right to arrest Sun Zhengcai ... but this was all about an internal power struggle," he said. "Xi Jinping is taking down the allies of [former president] Jiang Zemin one by one, and basically replacing them all [with his own people]." Reported by Wen Yuqing for RFA's Cantonese Service.
Senior Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi recently missed a major appointment to become a vice premier—signaling that the faction Yang belonged to, the faction loyal to former Chinese Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin—is further waning in power. The Jiang faction makes up the main opposition force to ...
In fact, there are many instances of leaders ignoring succession rules, with Deng Xiaoping wielding power without an official position and Jiang Zemin holding on to his military role after Hu Jintao took over as president and Party secretary. This change to term limits is more a symptom of existing conditions ...
During Hu's first term, his predecessor Jiang Zemin was able to install his supporters in pinnacles of power. For example, the two vice-chairmen of the Central Military Commission were his men, denying Hu any real power over the military. Another Jiang crony, Zhou Yongkang, the internal-security czar, ...
But realize that when the Party partially backed out from day-to-day management of politics and society in the reform era, that had several effects. First, it opened up space. Ordinary academics, for example, could reasonably believe that as long as they weren't doing anything like criticizing Jiang Zemin by ...
Both Hu and Hu's predecessor, Jiang Zemin, had done that. This would solidify a pattern of routine transfers of power that contrasted with the ruler-for-life one of Mao's time. Now, by contrast, some see Xi as the first leader of a new era of strongman rule, in which there are few constraints on the top leader.
''He was centrally involved in negotiations with the Chinese in 1997-1998 to plan the exchange of visits by US President Bill Clinton and Chinese President Jiang Zemin that restored normalcy to US-China relations eight years after the Tiananmen massacre,'' Jeffrey Bader, who was the National Security ...
For his part, Jiang Zemin believed: “On the Taiwan issue the Shanghai Communique established a good formula.” Yet the new Chinese President-for-Life Xi Jinping appears to have run out of patience and is anxious to project the power he has carefully amassed. Hong Kong-based political analyst Willy ...
Sources close to the central authorities revealed to The Epoch Times in June 2017—when Wu was arrested—that he had ties to the family of Zeng Qinghong, the former Chinese vice premier and right-hand man to former Party leader Jiang Zemin. Jiang and his associates belong to an opposition faction at ...
Deng's nominated successors as president, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, both carried on these policies while they were in power. Throughout the history of the People's Republic of China, party governance has flipped between “centralizing power and tightening” and “decentralization and loosening.”.
The 610 Office was established by the former Chinese Communist Party leader, Jiang Zemin, on June 10, 1999—hence its name—for the sole purpose of carrying out the persecution of Falun Gong, a meditation practice with moral teachings based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and ...

Li Ka-shing, Hong Kong's wealthiest man for the last 20 years and currently the 23rd richest person in the world, is retiring after a lifetime of extraordinary success. With a sprawling global empire and a net worth of $35.5 billion, Li, 89, has been called “the Warren Buffet of Asia.” He is a controversial ...
He forged close ties with top Communist Party officials, including former leaders Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin, though he is said to not be as friendly with current President Xi Jinping. CK Hutchison has sought to diversify away from China in recent years, unloading mainland and Hong Kong properties ...
Deng's paramount leadership ended upon his death despite officially retiring in 1989. What about Deng's successor, Jiang Zemin? While a compromise candidate, Jiang followed his predecessors' examples when it came to leadership, albeit with modifications. Like Deng and Mao, Jiang was named “core” ...
Officials loyal to former Chinese Communist Party leader Jiang Zemin make up a major oppositional force to the Xi leadership—though at last October's important political conclave, the 19th National Congress, the Jiang faction saw its power weakened after Xi was able to appoint many of his allies to top ...
To avoid a repeat of the aftermath of the 'Cultural Revolution', Deng incorporated a provision in the Party constitution in 1982 to limit the tenure of the President. Both Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, as the Third and Fourth Generation Leaders respectively, served two- five years terms each, adopting a collective leadership style.
The last is the least consequential, and the only one that carried term limits — China's last two presidents, Hu Jintao and Jiang Zemin, each stepped down after two five-year terms. State media has cast the revision as a common-sense move to bring the presidency into line with the other two posts. Yet Xi's ...

Xi Jinping's predecessors, Hu Jintao and Jiang Zemin also held all three positions, but each stepped down as president and then transitioned to new leadership largely after two terms. One key concern the Communist Party's argument ignores, however, is the country's history and why the limits were ...

The first is a populist coalition, and the second — which is named after former president Jiang Zemin — is considered elitist and comprised of 'princelings', leaders who themselves come from families of high-ranking officials. Xi, who had no factional alliance, became president five years ago after the Jiang ...
One can, and many did, speculate whether the detention of Ye was a result of an alleged power struggle between Xi Jinping and Jiang Zemin's clique in the party's leadership. Or an exemplary punishment of a company who borrowed too much from state banks and the development bank. Or a result of a ...
First is a conservative faction with close ties to the military and North Korea led by Jiang Zemin, the orchestrator of the Tiananmen Square Massacre in 1989. He was the successor to Deng, and while opening the country more to prosper from trade, a brutal crackdown on dissenters and Falun Gong ...
Any committee members with misgivings were unlikely to speak out, given the array of punishment they could face, and party elders who may have once opposed such a move — including Mr. Hu and another former president, Jiang Zemin — are too old or too cowed by Mr. Xi's anticorruption investigations ...
Wang spearheaded Xi's anti-corruption campaign to purge the Party of political enemies—namely, officials who were loyal to former leader Jiang Zemin. He helped Xi clean house, but perhaps that made him an enemy of the opposition Jiang faction. During October's Party leadership reshuffle, when the Xi ...
BEIJING — One Sunday last month, China's leader, Xi Jinping, traveled to a village in the mountains of Sichuan Province. He wore an olive overcoat with a fur collar, which he kept zipped up even when he entered an adobe house to meet with villagers. Around an indoor fire pit, he sat among a circle of ...
Xi's two predecessors, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, were named by Deng, the architect of China's economic reforms in the 1980s for the top position. Both served two five-year terms, but the incumbent leader is expected to play a much bigger role than his two immediate predecessors had played in the ...
Imperfect as they were, they brought about two peaceful power transitions in the past 15 years – from Jiang Zemin to Hu Jintao and then to Xi – a rare feat in modern Chinese history. Analysts fear abandoning them will significantly increase political risks in an already opaque system. It was not clear what ...
If you are an investor watching out for that stock market bump from China's annual legislative meetings, history has some insights to offer.

And in 1997, Graham met with then Chinese President Jiang Zemin when he was visiting the US. In South Korea, Billy Graham's popularity helped make Myungsung megachurch in Seoul, the largest Presbyterian Church in the world, with a weekly attendance of around 100,000 people. "We certainly ...
Jiang Zemin added the presidency to his titles of party leader and military head in 1993, holding that office until 2003. Jiang raised the profile of the presidency considerably with frequent trips abroad, while hosting world leaders and international gatherings at home. By the end of his time in office, a thin ...

The first Chinese president to follow these term limits was Jiang Zemin; the second was his successor and Xi's predecessor, Hu Jintao. Xi proposes to end this tradition even before it has taken firm root. Why would he do so? Unlike Jiang, Hu, and even Deng, to whom the Communist Party of China owes its ...
While ideas promoted by Xi's two immediate predecessors, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, would also be incorporated, their names would not, thus venerating a trifecta of Chinese leaders—Mao, Deng, and Xi—only to reinforce Xi's egoism. These proposed constitutional revisions are the latest—and most ...

Xi's two predecessors, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, both served two five-year terms, providing a smooth succession that accompanied China's rise to become the world's second-largest economy. But Xi, 64, has adopted Mao's playbook, tightening his grip with a relentless crackdown on civil society and ...
... under which his predecessors Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao shared power with other party leaders and stepped down after two five-year terms. Xi said in 2013 that power "must be confined within the cage of institutions," but that pledge "is now meaningless," Evan Medeiros of Eurasia Group said in a report.
That would elevate Xi to the stature of Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, and Jiang Zemin. That elevation was already established in the context of the Chinese Communist Party in November, when “Xi Jinping Thought” was incorporated into the party's constitution.

... Chinese vice-president. Cheney met then vice-president Hu Jintao in Washington in 2002, when Hu had already been designated China's next top leader by Deng. Hu's five-year vice-presidency was intended to prepare him to succeed president Jiang Zemin and increase his exposure to foreign leaders.
While many internal CCP matters happen are a black box, most experts agree that there are factions within the party -- such as the so-called "Shanghai clique" around former President Jiang Zemin. Some have argued Xi's far-reaching anti-graft campaign is itself a tool to go after factional enemies and ...
The position of president in China ranks below that of head of the Communist Party and the military, neither of which has legal term limits. Xi holds all three positions. Only two of Xi's predecessors – party bosses Hu Jintao and Jiang Zemin – stuck to the 10-year term limit. In some ways, the move represents ...
