China’s Leadership ‘Election’ Begins: Report

From AFP:

The nominees for China’s president and prime minister were unveiled to the national parliament Wednesday, state media said, kicking off the nation’s communist-style election process.

The nomination lists were handed over to the nearly 3,000 delegates at the ongoing National People’s Congress for “discussion and consultation”, Xinhua news agency said of the nation’s opaque political process.

On Saturday, the annual parliament will elect a president, vice president and parliament head, while delegates will rubber stamp the nomination for prime minister on Sunday.
