Since I haven't seen this mentioned on Mastodon:
"China's largely ceremonial parliament opens its annual session Monday, with delegates poised to endorse controversial measures that will allow the country's leader Xi Jinping to rule indefinitely."
@pony I don't know either.
But during the Obama's administration, a common complaint by opponents was that he would remove term limits and make himself president for life. That always sounded very silly to me, so it's strange to see someone actually doing it.
My only thought of China is that it would be so vast that it would be possible to evade, in certain ways, the president's power…
@kai no country is more vast than Russia, yet you either go with the ruling mobsters or lie dead on the sidewalk near Kremlin :)
but at least it shows that having a diverse party is not democratic enough, because it's probably quite easy to take over a party
@pony it seems like a strange trend. anachronistic
