China's Communist Party will on Thursday unveil the new set of top leaders who will run the country for the next decade, one day after its week-long congress ends.

The widely expected timing was confirmed by staff organising press coverage of the congress under way in Beijing, which is held every five years.

President Hu Jintao, who has been in power ten years, is widely expected to hand over the reins of the ruling party to his vice president, Xi Jinping.

The leadership -- decided in back-room horse-trading between party factions -- is revealed to the nation when members of the Politburo Standing Committee march out in a line before the cameras at Beijing's Great Hall of the People.
