New Leadership in Beijing Spells End of Reform | Epoch Times
Hu Jintao will “retire completely” and Xi Jinping will become the Chairman of the Military Committee. This means that Hu Jintao is completely out of the center of power in the Party. Hu’s influence will be weaker than that of Jiang Zemin, who retired 10 years ago.
In the past 10 years, Hu Jintao accomplished nothing as the CCP General Secretary. He will accomplish even less after retirement. When people recall Hu’s record, perhaps the only thing to remember is Hu’s attention to trivial matters and his image as a yes-man, kowtowing in front of Jiang Zemin.
