Hu´s China

In Estudios, Sistema político by PSTBS12378sxedeOPCH

Although everybody assumed Hu Jintao would be the next General Secretary of the Communist Party of China in times of Deng Xiaoping, his election for this position in 2002 set some doubts about his politics. As years went by, the main features of his management –focused not only on the economy, but on social and environmental and foreign affairs as well– have been gradually revealed. On the other hand, the proximity of a new CPC Congress, which will be held in 2007, bolsters up internal disputes, while Hu Jintao tries to make sure he will design his own sucession without having to take into account neither the requirements of his predecessor Jiang Zemin nor the ones of his colleagues in the highest Chinese power structures. To this aim, he has set off a crusade to reinforce authority and correctness within the Party at all levels of public performance.
