Example text

In September 2004, the Fourth Plenary Session of the Sixteenth Central Committee of the CPC agreed that Jiang Zemin should resign as chairman of the Central Military Committee and instead Hu Jintao was appointed to this position. Jiang Zemin thus initiated the whole succession process at the Meeting of the Central Military Committee on September 20. By the time of the Plenary Session to the Sixteenth National Party Congress, the peaceful transition of new top leaders of the party, state, and army had been successfully completed.

However, neither Mao nor Lin took part in drafting the document nor did they communicate directly about this matter. They entrusted the chairing of the committee to Zhou Enlai and Kang Sheng (Angang Hu 2010, p. 518). If Zhou Enlai was absent, Kang Sheng would attend to the daily business of the central government on Zhou Enlai’s behalf. Kang was thus in effect a kind of deputy premier (Wu Faxian 2006, p. 824). In this period, no meetings of the Standing Committee were held, and thus it no longer played a core governing role.

The committee at that time comprised five members, and a dangerous situation of three-versus-two emerged regarding the crucial decision of whether or not to impose martial law in the area of the capital. This event shocked Deng Xiaoping deeply. On June 16 of that year, Deng Xiaoping held discussions with other leaders, including Jiang Zemin. During those talks, Deng said that he had been aware of this potential problem many years ago. Deng stated that it was both unhealthy and dangerous if the fate of a country revolved around one or two individuals.
