Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has sent a congratulatory message to Chinese President Xi Jinping.
In his message, the PM said that re-election of Xi, for another term will help further strengthen Sri Lanka - China relations.
The Chinese President completed a remarkable power grab early this week that could keep him in charge of China well beyond his new five-year term.
Even before the Communist Party Congress came to a close this week, Xi had become one of China's most powerful modern leaders -- the so-called "chairman of everything.
“Xi broke with precedent by refusing to anoint a successor. Instead, he surrounded himself with six party loyalists, all of whom were too old to replace him.
Delegates also voted to elevate Xi to a status on par with the legendary founding father of Communist China, Chairman Mao Zedong.
Xi's political thoughts, or ideology, will be enshrined in the constitution and taught in China's schools.
