Xi Jinping takes an oath of allegiance to the constitution

Xi Jinping became the first Chinese president to take a public oath of allegiance to the constitution on Saturday.

Earlier that day, he was reelected as the Chinese president and chairman of the Central Military Commission, while his trusted ally Wang Qishan was elected vice president (even though he “retired” at the 19th Party Congress last October).

The Party also released a new cabinet lineup that includes Yi Gang, who is the new head of the People’s Bank of China.

    Xi Jinping became the first Chinese president to take a public oath of allegiance to the constitution on Saturday. Was it the constitution of the People’s Republic, or the constitution of the Communist Party? The constitution of the People’s Republic states: Article 35. Citizens of the People’s Republic of China enjoy freedom of speech, of the press, of assembly, of association, of procession and of demonstration; Article 36. Citizens of the People’s Republic of China enjoy freedom of religious belief. etc; Article 37. The freedom of person of citizens of the People’s Republic of China is inviolable. Etc; Article 40. The freedom and privacy of correspondence of citizens of the People’s Republic of China are protected by law. Is this the law that Mr. Xi swore to uphold??
