Chinese Communist Party passes landmark resolution celebrating leader Xi Jinping

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has adopted a landmark resolution on the party’smajor achievements and historic experiences,” according to a communique published by the official Xinhua news agency on Thursday, in a move expected to further strengthen President Xi Jinping’s hold on power.

It is only the thirdhistory resolutionissued by the CCP in its 100-year existence; the other two, en 1945 y 1981, cemented the supremacy of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, respectivamente.
This resolution is a way for Xi to codify his authority in the present and project his long-lasting power and influence into the future.
    The communique states that, under Xi, the Communist Party hassolved many tough problems that were long on the agenda but never resolved, and accomplished many things that were wanted but never got done.
      It pledged toresolutely uphold Comrade Xi Jinping’s core position on the Central Committee and in the Party as a whole and uphold the Central Committeeauthority and its centralized, unified leadership to ensure that all Party members act in unison”.
        The resolution was passed during the sixth plenum of the CCP’s 19th Central Committee, a four-day meeting behind closed doors in Beijing which brings together the country’s top leaders.
        En 2018, China’s largely ceremonial parliament changed its rules to remove presidential term limits, paving the way for Xi to potentially rule for life.
          Xi has already managed to establish his own eponymous political theory and have it written into the party’s constitution, a measure previously only reserved for Mao and Deng. By issuing his own resolution, Xi seeks to further entrench his status as a towering leader on the same level as the same two predecessors.
          Mao’s resolution in 1945 established him as the unchallenged authority within the party, after a three-yearrectificationcampaign that brutally purged his political and ideological opponents.
          Deng’s resolution in 1981, mientras tanto, acknowledged Mao’s errors in launching the Cultural Revolutiona political campaign that plunged the country into a decade of chaos and tormentalthough it concluded that Mao’s contributions to the Chinese revolutionfar outweighedhis mistakes. By admitting to and moving on from past mistakes, Deng was able to usher in a new era of reform.
          Bajo Xi, China has adopted more autocratic domestic policies while turning increasingly confrontational abroad.
            He has greatly tightened his grip over the Party’s 95 million members, emphasizingabsolute loyaltyfrom senior officials as well as the rank and file. Beijing’s recent crackdown on the private sector and so-calledsocial illsis seen as Xi’s determination to reassert the Party’s dominant role in every aspect of Chinese society and to reshape the country according to his worldview.
            Xi’s second five-year term as the Party leader ends next year, but he is expected to seek an almost unprecedented third term and beyond at the 20th Party Congress in late 2022.
