China has approved the removal of term limits for its leader, in a move that effectively allows the General Secretary of the Communist Party, Xi Jinping to remain as president for life.

The constitutional changes were passed by China's annual sitting of the National People's Congress on Sunday(Mar. 11).

The vote was widely regarded as a rubber-stamping exercise. Two delegates voted against the change and three abstained, out of 2,964 votes.

China has imposed a two-term limit on its president since the 1990s.

Xi, however, defied the tradition of presenting a potential successor during October's Communist Party Congress.
