Beijing, April 8 – Chinese President Xi Jinping has been sworn in for a second term as head of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

The party said Xi had been elected at a meeting of the Central Committee on April 8 at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, the country’s capital.

China’s leadership, known as the Central Military Commission, has been in power since 1949, and Xi was given a seven-year term in the aftermath of his father’s death in March 2020.

Under Xi’s leadership of the CPC, the party has transformed its image from a conservative political party to a superpower.

But many say the new leader is more focused on his own personal wealth than on promoting China’s international image.

The Chinese president has faced criticism for his handling of corruption allegations against the countrys biggest state-owned enterprises, such as state-run oil giant CNPC, which he has said is an innocent victim of its own success.

Some analysts have also raised questions about his personal wealth, saying he is too dependent on his father, Xi Jinping, to live his life as a leader of a country that has become a financial and political power.

Critics have also accused Xi of being too soft on corruption, and have called for his resignation.

China has been grappling with a growing problem of corruption for more than a decade, with the economy and political system increasingly dominated by graft.

Critics say Xi Jinping’s reign has been tainted by widespread corruption and abuse of power.
