Hu Jintao tightens his grip on power

Financial Times had an article today called “China’s Hu Jintao tightens his grip on power.”

“Nearly two years after he attained the top position in China’s ruling Communist party, President has consolidated his power through a combination of manoeuvring and compromise with his predecessor and rival , several people within the party said.

The shift of influence from Mr Jiang, who remains head of the armed forces, to Mr Hu has been gradual.

But as party leaders prepare for a plenum this week, it is clear that Mr Hu’s policies and vision are prevailing over those associated with Mr Jiang, party insiders said. ”
