BEIJING (Reuters) – The official newspaper of China’s ruling Communist Party has lavished unusually high levels of praise on President Xi Jinping’s signature leadership, as China’s strongest leader in decades consolidates his personal power.
Xi’s leadership was cast as having forged a new way of governance for China that the paper said had been applauded worldwide and had brought China to new heights of economic, political and diplomatic success.
Paean - State - Mouthpiece - Parts - Nom
The paean, even more effusive than usual for the state mouthpiece, came in two parts written under the official nom de plume of the People’s Daily for important commentaries and was carried on its front page on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Billed as an exposition on the changes in leadership, thought, mission and “rejuvenation” for China revealed during a course-setting meeting of the top party leadership in October, it marked the latest assault in a propaganda onslaught vaunting Xi’s contributions to China and the world.
Xi - Positions - Accolades - Level - Predecessors
Xi has amassed positions and accolades at a level much higher than his immediate predecessors, being named the “core” of the party leadership last year and having his named theory written into the party charter in October.
Such an honor has not been given to a sitting leader since Mao Zedong, communist China’s founding leader.
