Congress of Communist Party of China

7 November 2012

China's ruling communist elite began a closed-door meeting on Nov. 8 to

finalize preparations for a painstakingly choreographed but still

fraught transfer of power to a younger generation of leaders. The

meeting of the policy-setting Central Committee is its last before the

Communist Party leadership will begin to hand over power to younger

colleagues in a once-a-decade political transition.

Beijing is

tightening security as its all-important Communist Party congress

approaches, and some of the measures seem bizarre. Most of the security

measures were implemented in time for opening of a meeting of the

Central Committee.
