Xi Jinping Clear to Rule Indefinitely as China Scraps Presidential Term Limits

BEIJING—China’s legislature formally scrapped term limits on Xi Jinping’s presidency, clearing his path toward indefinite one-man rule.

Of the 2,964 delegates casting ballots the National People’s Congress voting Sunday, 2,958 voted to repeal a 10-year limit on presidential tenures, along with a series of other constitutional changes aimed at entrenching Mr. Xi and his Communist Party’s dominance over Chinese life. There were two dissents, three abstentions and one invalid vote, a congress official said.
