Li Datong, a former senior editor at the official China Youth Daily newspaper, wrote a public letter urging legislators to oppose the move, which he said made China vulnerable to repeating power struggles of the past.
"As an important content of the amendment, the inclusion of Xi's thought into the country's fundamental law reflects the common aspiration of the entire party (Communist Party) and all Chinese people of various ethnic groups", said Shen Chunyao, the chairman of the Commission for Legislative Affairs of the 12th NPC Standing Committee, as reported by Xinhua.
However, it seems that now Xi has become so important and influential in China's politics that the party forgot the threats of letting someone take over the power with no restrictions. "But from America's perspective, this administration has been very clear of pushing back against the Chinese threat".
China passed a historic constitutional amendment on Sunday formally removing term limits to enable President Xi to stay on as the Chinese president beyond 2023.
"The amendment generates a level of uncertainty", Rafferty said before the vote. One would write into the constitution the term "community of common destiny", also sometimes referred to as the "community of shared future" (命运共同体), an amorphous concept that places China at the center of a harmonious global community of peace and prosperity, in implicit contrast with the United States' hegemonic, self-interested control of the present worldwide system (China Brief, February 26, 2018).
Such displays of dissidence are extremely rare in China, given the country's crackdown on political opponents and rampant censorship of media platforms, which recently has specifically sought to suppress criticism of Xi's leadership.
China's under Xi's leadership has considerably developed.
Critics accuse the Communist Party of "making a U-turn", returning China to the tumultuous Mao era and ignoring the lessons of history.
Significantly, today's amendment also removed term-limits for the Vice President.
"The legacy of Deng Xiaoping's efforts to avoid lifelong presidency have been abolished completely", he said.
Xi, a princeling and son of a Vice Premier, who was the Vice President under Hu took over all the three posts in 2013 and subsequently emerged as the most powerful leader of China after Mao with little or no resistance in the party.
Besides, lawmakers at the NPC, China's parliament, also included Mr. Xi's political doctrine - 'Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, ' as part of the amended Constitution.
"Everyone expects that this will make Xi Jinping a stronger, more decisive leader, but it's also possible that he will need to justify this change by maintaining his popularity", explained Mary Gallagher, the director of the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies at the University of MI.
"That doesn't bode well for hard reforms ahead: Will the [Communist Party] be able to raise the retirement age?" Xi is commonly compared to Putin due to his authoritarianism. Enact a property tax?
The posters, written in Chinese and English, have featured phrases such as "not my president" and "I disagree".
"If Xi is right, he will be more effective in getting his policies implemented", Tsang continued. His leadership has been marked with a rapid tightening of controls on society, both online and offline and concerns about human rights abuses. "The era began after the death of Chairman Mao Zedong in 1976, when China tried to move away from the political violence and cult of personality that characterized his rule".
