China’s ‘Chairman of Everything’: Behind Xi Jinping’s Many Titles


He is president, general secretary of the Communist Party and chairman of the Central Military Commission, to name a few. He leads working groups on issues as varied as Taiwan and internet security, and he has been hailed as the party’s “core leader.” Mr. Xi’s multiple designations reflect his status as one of China’s most influential modern leaders.
