Immediately after his re-election by China’s top legislature, 64-year-old Xi took a public oath of allegiance to the Constitution, becoming the first Chinese President to do so upon assuming office. Oath-taking is a part of amendments to the Constitution adopted during the ongoing parliamentary session. The 1982 Constitution was revised to meet with the demands of today’s society, the most famous change being the removal of the presidential term limit and the addition of Xi’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics in the New Era.
