Xi Jinping removes Chinese Premier Le Keqiang from CPC's core committee | Oneindia News

Chinese President Xi Jinping, in an effort to solidify his powers more, has dropped two of the most senior politburo members effective immediately.

In a major leadership shuffle, Xi Jinping has dropped Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, the nation's No.

2 official, and a proponent of economic reforms. He will be among four of the seven members who will not be reappointed to the nation's all-powerful Politburo Standing Committee.This development was announced just hours after the video of the former President Hu Jintao's unceremonious exit from the meet went viral.

The removal of Li, while not unexpected, has signaled Jinping's continuing tight hold on power in the world’s second-largest economy.Mr. Li, who will step down in March as premier, is 67 and therefore eligible under China's age norms to have served another five years on the standing committee.

With this, his ten years of premiership will come to an end.

But his removal has sent a clear message that Xi Jinping wants untrammelled and unquestionable authority.

The move has also now stacked the Communist Party almost completely with Jinping's loyals and affiliates.

The party also approved amendments to its constitution aimed at cementing the core status of Xi Jinping and the guiding role of his political thought within the party as it wrapped up its twice-a-decade congress.

This event, held in Beijing every five years, has this time consolidated Xi Jinping's position as China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong.

Tomorrow, the new Central Committee will choose the elite Politburo Standing Committee, with Jinping all set to secure a third leadership term.

Earth’s Inner Core May Be Reversing Its Rotation, Study Suggests [Video]

Earth’s Inner Core May Be Reversing Its Rotation, Study Suggests

Earth’s Inner Core , May Be Reversing Its Rotation, Study Suggests. According to a study published Jan. 23 in 'Nature Geoscience,' . our planet's inner core may be reversing after it temporarily stopped rotating. Researchers think it could be part of a 70-year cycle, with the inner core changing direction every 35 years, that may affect Earth's magnetic field and the length of days. After examining data, researchers think the inner core may have made another rotation reversal in the 1970s. We see strong evidence that the inner core has been rotating faster than the surface, [but] by around 2009 it nearly stopped. Now it is gradually mov[ing] in the opposite direction, Xiaodong Song, geophysicist, Peking University in Beijing, via 'Science News'. However, 'Science News' reports that other researchers think the inner core may change its rotation every three years. Others propose that the inner core doesn't move at all. Overall, researchers say more studies are needed to figure out what's going on with Earth's inner core. In all likelihood, it’s irrelevant to life on the surface, but we don’t actually know what’s happening. It’s incumbent on us to figure it out, John Vidale, geophysicist, the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, via 'Science News'
