Former President Hu Jintao suddenly left during the closing ceremony of the party congress…
Former Chinese President Hu Jintao abruptly left the venue shortly before the party’s constitutional adoption during the closing ceremony of the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China on the 22nd
According to Japan’s NHK broadcast on the 23rd, former President Hu tried to sit next to President Xi Jinping with a dissatisfied look. He also tried to shake off the arm of the official who approached him to help. After waking up at the urging of officials, he stood next to President Xi and talked to him, and he was seen answering briefly. After failing to enter the Central Committee at the party convention, Lee Ke-chang, a former member of the Communist Youth Corps, who was eliminated from the Politburo’s Standing Committee, lightly hit the shoulders and said short words, leaving the venue. At that time, reporters from China and abroad were covering the scene.
While the reason for former President Hu’s sudden exit is unknown, analysts say that he expressed political dissatisfaction based on the situation at the time when he seemed to leave the venue regardless of his intention and the elimination of Prime Minister Lee and others, who have been sponsored by former President Hu.
China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency said on its Twitter account on the night of the 22nd, “Shinhwa Net reporter Ryu Ja-won learned that Hu Jintao insisted on attending the closing ceremony of the party’s convention even though it took time to recover his health.” I’m much better now,” he said. As former President Hu’s sudden exit drew great attention at home and abroad, state media began to explain. Twitter is banned from China, so this explanation is for external propaganda. Former President Hu, who was 80 years old this year, entered the party with the help of his entourage when he attended the opening ceremony of the party convention on the 16th.
