China announced its new leadership lineup on Wednesday with President Xi Jinping still at the helm of the Chinese Communist Party. Although it’s a team in name, the Chinese president is now more powerful than he’s ever been — especially as there’s no clear successor to Xi in the new lineup.In the wake of the last week’s Communist Party congress, Xi now stands as China’s most powerful leader in years. And he’s expected to use that authority to steer the country into a position of global leadership on its own terms.”As the world’s largest political party, the [Communist Party of China] must behave in a way commensurate with this status,” Xi said through a translator on Wednesday after the new leadership was announced.
