China Drafts Name List of Party Central Committee

Tuesday, 13 Nov 2012 05:37 AM

BEIJING — China's ruling communists are considering a list of candidates for their new Central Committee ahead of a tightly circumscribed vote.

The margin in the election of committee members is 8 percent, meaning there are 108 candidates for every 100 seats.

The congress' presidium headed by leader-in-waiting Xi Jinping handed down the list of carefully vetted candidates to the congress' just under 2,300 delegates on Tuesday. About 200 will be elected in Wednesday's vote.

The Central Committee will then elect the 25-member Politburo and its Standing Committee.

Party leader Hu Jintao has called for greater intra-party democracy, but offered nothing specific. Hu gives up his party title at the end of the 18th national congress on Wednesday and the presidency next spring after a decade in power.
