Xi Jinping took office for a third term as China’s President on Friday.
As a result of his assumption of office, the new generation saw him as the most powerful leader in the country’s history.
Xi was elected to another five-year term as head of the Chinese Communist Party in October. That is why China’s parliament appointed him as President, reports AFP.
Since then, Xi, 69, has faced widespread protests over his zero-COVID policy and the countless deaths after abandoning it.
This week’s National People’s Congress avoided these issues. It is also set to appoint Xi’s ally Li Qiang as the new Prime Minister.
On Friday, delegates inaugurated Xi for a third term as China’s President and unanimously re-elected him as head of the country’s Central Military Commission at the Beijing’s Great Hall of the People where a military band plays background music.
