Tehran (IP)- China's ruling Communist Party announced that it had elected the country's current president as the new president for another five years.

Iran PressAsia: After the Communist Party's Congress, Xi Jinping is expected to become China's President for an unprecedented third term which will be announced during the legislative sessions in March. 

China's ruling Communist Party ended its Congress in the Great Hall of the People Saturday with several amendments to the party constitution that will embolden President Xi Jinping's status as China's leader and, Beijing believes, the country's standing in the world.

2,300 delegates, all Party stalwarts, attended the week-long Congress. The Congress paved the way for Xi to have an unprecedented third term by cementing his "core position" in the country's leadership.

The official announcement though of a third term will come during the annual legislative sessions in March. In 2018, Xi scrapped the presidential two-term limit, allowing him to rule indefinitely.

Delegates also votes to enshrine opposition to Taiwan's independence in the constitution.
