Beijing, Mar 10 (Prensa Latina) The National People's Congress (Parliament) of China unanimously re-elected President Xi Jinping for another term and also appointed its new leaders and other senior State officials.

The almost three thousand deputies present at the annual session of the Congress ratified Xi Jinping at the head of the Central Military Commission.

Xi has served in those two posts for 10 years and has also been the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) since 2012.

Han Zheng was elected Vice President, while Zhao Leji was appointed chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, along with another 14 vice presidents of the Committee.

After the voting, the President and the other officials swore loyalty to the Chinese constitution.

The new Prime Minister will also be appointed this weekend from among a number of members of CCP Politburo Standing Committee.
