CHI­NESE STATE ME­DIA URGE NEW STA­TUS FOR XI

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BEIJING: Most Chi­nese peo­ple want Com­mu­nist Party chief Xi Jin­ping to be a “core” leader in the mould of Mao Ze­dong, of­fi­cial me­dia said a sur­vey showed, as he seeks to con­sol­i­date his con­trol. The Peo­ple’s Tri­bune magazine, an af­fil­i­ate of the party’s mouth­piece Peo­ple’s Daily, this week pub­lished re­sults of a sur­vey of 15,000 peo­ple. It said they agreed “the rise of a great na­tion calls for strong, core lead­er­ship” – ter­mi­nol­ogy that de­notes the supremacy of a sin­gle leader. – AFP
