CHINA'S MARITIME CHALLENGE IN THE INDO-PACIFIC
With the status quo under challenge and competition for strategic space intensifying, especially among the major regional powers in the Indo-Pacific, the region has seen an increase in tensions. China’s ‘rise’ has fuelled its ambition to become a global power. The perceived decline of the US, its reduced interest in the region and its reluctance to back even treaty allies, like Japan and the Philippines, has encouraged China and exacerbated the situation.

PEOPLE'S LIBERATION ARMY (PLA) AND PEOPLE'S ARMED POLICE (PAP) DEPUTIES TO CHINA’S THIRTEENTH NATIONAL PEOPLE'S
Chen Min’er, Politburo member and recently appointed Party Secretary of the centrally administered Chongqing Municipality, said on the sidelines of the NPC session on March 6, 2018, that investigating former Politburo members Bo Xilai and Sun Zhengcai had removed "major political hidden dangers for the party" and that "They both are the source of the pollution of the political ecology, and they massively harmed Chongqing's officials."

XI JINPING PREPARES TO LEAD CHINA INTO NEW THIRTY YEAR ERA
Last week there was a major, though anticipated, development in China’s internal politics with the announcement that term limits on the posts of China’s President and Vice President would be abolished. Removing the limitation on these tenures establishes Xi Jinping’s pre-eminent stature and allows him to continue interminably subject to his health.
The decision potentially has immense implications and long-term repercussions.

SITUATION IN MALDIVES COULD POTENTIALLY FURTHER RAISE INDIA-CHINA TENSIONS
The political uncertainty and social instability in the Indian Ocean archipelago of the Maldives has the potential to increase tensions between India and China. Since its independence in 1966, when India was the first country to recognise it, the Maldives has been perceived as within India’s sphere of influence and sought and received India’s assistance in times of dire need.

DISTANCING THE PLA FROM POLITICS – REPRESENTATIVES IN CCP STANDING COMMITTEES
From 2015, PLA officers began being removed from the Provincial Party Standing Committees. Indications are now surfacing that this policy is under review and possibly being reversed. A major reversal in this policy has, however, become evident from December 2017 since when PLA officers have begun being brought back into the Provincial Party Standing Committees.

DIFFERENT FACETS OF THE DOKLAM FACE-OFF: AN OVERVIEW
The 73-day face-off between India and China at Doklam that ended on August 28, 2017 marks an important juncture in India-China relations. The nature of the military deployments, kind of Chinese propaganda offensive not witnessed in over 40 years, and actions of the Chinese Foreign Ministry and Chinese Embassy in New Delhi, set it apart from earlier stand-offs.

ANALYSIS OF CHINA’S 19TH PARTY CONGRESS
Already holding over fourteen formal positions -- more than any other CCP leader so far – CCP CC General Secretary Xi Jinping has, as anticipated, emerged considerably stronger from this Congress. By skilful use of the sustained anti-corruption campaign he has eliminated opposition in the Party and military and drastically reduced the influence wielded by his predecessor once removed, Jiang Zemin. In September 2017, China’s official media publicised that more than 176 CCP cadres equivalent to the rank of central Vice Minister and above had been dismissed and arrested for corruption and that more than 14,000 officers of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) had been similarly dismissed. At least 120 officers of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of and above the rank of Major General have been dismissed and retired.

CHINA'S 19th PARTY CONGRESS INDICATES NO CHANGE IN CHINA'S POLICY TOWARDS TIBET
The week long (October 18-24, 2017) 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which was held in Beijing, concluded as anticipated with Xi Jinping emerging considerably stronger. For those watching the Congress for clues as to Xi Jinping’s policies towards China’s ethnic minorities and especially Tibet and Xinjiang, however, there appears little prospect of any relaxation of controls. An indication was the sharp drop in the number of ethnic minority cadres elected to the new 19th Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee (CC).

CHINA’S 19th PARTY CONGRESS: NEW LEADERS TO STEER CHINA TO THE CHINA DREAM
The week long (October 18-24, 2017) 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which was held in Beijing, concluded as anticipated with Xi Jinping emerging considerably stronger. His contribution to Chinese communist ideology was recognised and unanimously approved for incorporation into the Party Constitution as ‘Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese characteristics for a New Era’. He is the first CCP leader to have his contribution, attached to his name, enshrined in the Party Constitution while still alive. This places it next in heft to those of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping, especially with the Chinese media already having begun to headline it as “Xi Jinping Thought”!

INITIAL ASSESSMENT OF XI JINPING’S WORK REPORT AT 19TH PARTY CONGRESS
The crucial 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) opened in Beijing on October 18, 2017, amidst stringent security restrictions in Beijing and other major cities in China. Nearly a thousand foreign reporters from 130 countries are reported to be covering the Congress. The Congress was preceded by other important meetings, namely the 7th and last Plenum of the 18th CCP Central Committee (CC), and of the Party’s powerful anti-corruption body the Central Discipline Inspection Commission (CDIC) chaired by Xi Jinping’s close associate and Politburo Standing Committee member, Wang Qishan.

CHINA : DELEGATES SELECTED TO THE 19TH PARTY CONGRESS
Preparations for the 19th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) which, according to credible reports is likely to be held towards the end of October 2017, are well underway. The election of 2,300 Delegates to the Party Congress from 40 electoral blocs has virtually been completed. 2,270 Delegates were elected to the 18th Party Congress in November 2012. 1,909 Delegates for the 19th Party Congress representing Central Departments directly under the CCP Central Committee (CC), Central State organs, the Central Enterprise system and the provinces and centrally-administered Municipalities, have been elected.

CHINA’S INTERNAL SITUATION BEFORE THE 19TH PARTY CONGRESS: AN OVERVIEW
Especially since the 18th Party Congress in November 2012 and as China moves to convene the 19th Party Congress in November 2017, there has been a steady hardening of the Chinese State. Political stability and regime survival have been top on the Party agenda and to ensure this Xi Jinping has introduced progressively restrictive domestic measures and promoted the rise in nationalism.

XI JINPING'S POLITICAL POWER BASE
Since his appointment simultaneously to China's three top posts of General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Central Committee (CC), Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) and President of China at the 18 th Party Congress in November 2012, Xi Jinping has steadily acquired and consolidated greater authority. In addition to the post of Commander-in-Chief of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) that he assumed on April 20, 2016, Xi Jinping heads a majority of the Central Leading Small Groups (CLSGs).
