China removed presidential term limits from its constitution on Sunday, giving President Xi Jinping the right to remain in office indefinitely.

The country’s ruling Communist Party announced the proposed amendment only last month and there was never any doubt it would pass because its rubber-stamp parliament is packed with loyal party members.

Reuters reports that Xi’s political theory was also inserted into the constitution, a feat no other leader since Mao had managed while in office. Additionally, clauses were included to give a legal framework to a new super anti-corruption department.

Schoolchildren, college students and staff at state factories will have to study the political ideology, which the Communist Party is trying to portray as a new chapter for modern China, reports BBC.

    What does this guy think he is? And American non-Democrat Party politician? President for life…was that not the title Obama and Clinton were looking for?

    MAYBE WE SHOULD TAKE A VOTE IN LETTING TRUMP BE PRESIDENT FOR LIFE. I SURE WOULD VOTE OF HIM TO KEEP ALL THE CROOKS OUT.
