China’s Communist Party unveils new leadership, with no obvious successor to Xi Jinping


China’s Communist Party unveiled its new leadership lineup on Wedneday, granting President Xi Jinping another five years in power as general secretary and including no obvious successor in the senior-most ranks.

Xi introduced the six other all-male members of the Politburo Standing Committee to the media, breaking with recent convention by not including a potential heir in the lineup. That appears to raise the chances that Xi could stay on in power beyond 2022.
