UPDATE (March 2, 2021 5.30pm CST): On March 11, 2018, China passed the constitutional amendment to scrap presidential term limits. The amendment was passed by an overwhelming majority – 2,958 in favor, two opposed and three abstentions, NPR reported.

The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) has proposed removing the Constitution's two-term limit for the President and Vice President, state media announced yesterday.

If the proposal is approved, it would clear the way for Xi Jinping to stay on for another term as Chinese President after his second one ends in 2023. 

The limit of two consecutive five-year terms was initially added into the country's Constitution in 1982, when Deng Xiaoping was in power.
