China’s parliament has removed the 2 consecutive 5-year term limit for its president to allow sitting ruler Xi Jinping to remain president for life, BBC reports.

Almost 3000 delegates voted to make proposed amendments to the constitution, one of which included the removal of the term limit to the presidency.

Only 2 of the 2964 delegates voted against, while 3 abstained.

The proposal to amend the constitution was officially made in February by the Communist Party, although rumours of its intention had been before then.

Jinping who is also the head of the party and the head of the military has become the most powerful man in China since the party founder Chairman Mao Zedong.

    This is how it starts. He may be a hero now but he will stay in power long enough to become a villain of his own country. U can’t cheat History.
    When the past is not learned, History dooms us all.
