Question

From Wikipedia,

The 20th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party will be held in Beijing in the second half of 2022. 2,300 delegates will represent the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)'s estimated 90 million members. Preparations for the 20th National Congress began in 2021 and ended with a plenary session of the 19th Central Committee, a few days prior to the 20th National Congress. In 2021, local and provincial party organizations began electing delegates to the congress as well as receiving and amending party documents. It will not be succeeded by the 21st National Congress until 2027.

The CCP Congress will endorse the membership list of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection and will elect the Central Committee, which in turn will approve the members of the Political Bureau and its Standing Committee, the most powerful decision-making body.

It is believed that either current Chinese leader Xi Jinping will be re-elected as the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, or will be newly elected as the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party, the highest position held by Mao Zedong.

Will Xi Jinping be re-elected paramount leader in 2022?

This question will resolve as "Yes" if ANY of the following events occur before January 1, 2023:

  • Xi Jinping is re-elected as the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party

  • Xi Jinping is newly elected as the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party

  • Xi Jinping takes on a new role that is widely considered to continue his role as the paramount leader of China. If there is a dispute, we will use a consensus from the Associated Press and Reuters to determine whether Xi Jinping is still the "paramount leader" of China by the end of 2022.

Otherwise, the question will resolve negatively.
