【Why is it important?】The 19th Session of the CPC National Congress will conclude the 18th CPC National Committee and elect the 19th committee. According to unwritten traditions, a large part of the 18th committee will likely retire due to age limits and be replaced by new members. The new national committee will then elect the general secretary, the political bureau and its standing committee, the central military committee, among other top organs, forming the new central leadership of the CPC and the country. Graphics: Global Times
