Chinese president to hand over power to his successor
Issued on: Modified:
Xi Jinping will be crowned president of China. The Parliament session in Beijing opened this week. It's a double session. The high chamber opened last Sunday, and this Tuesday the National People's Congress opened with the final speech of outgoing Premier Wen Jiabao. The NPC is a rubber stamp parliament as the powerless high chamber is a mockery of democracy. This year this political theater has welcomed celebrities and stars.
