China is making the most significant change to its political system in 35 years.Deng Xiaoping is generally remembered as the man who began China's economic reforms. Perhaps the single most significant transformation was in 1982, when the Chinese Communist Party wrote into the country's constitution that its president and vice president could serve no more than two consecutive terms.If term limits are abolished, which is now almost certain, Xi Jinping could stay China's president, general secretary of the Communist Party, and chairman of the Central Military Commission for the rest of his life.Xi has been a strong leader for China. The real challenge for China, however, is not about Xi's economic policies. The real danger is that China is eliminating perhaps the central restraint in a system that provides staggering amounts of power to the country's leaders.China under Xi has also become more ambitious internationally.Chinese scholars say China is entering a new era with a new system. Since the Communist Party took power in 1949, it had roughly 30 years of Mao's rule.
