President Xi Jinping to resign from all public posts, citing “five grave mistakes” by the leader.

The message, which appeared in the blog of a New York-based website www.mingjingnews.com, was endorsed by “171 loyal members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) working in the party, government, military and other organizations.”

They listed five “grave mistakes” that they said Xi had made, starting with an open violation of the party charter. Xi encouraged and endorsed personality cult by allowing people to call him “Xi the Great” and to worship him with “nauseating eulogies” on the web, the group said.

Second, Xi has implemented a dictatorship in violation of the rule of law by appointing himself as convener of various ad hoc groups in the Communist Party’s Central Committee, it said.

Third, it said, Xi’s government has provided huge assistance to foreign countries in spite of serious needs at home, the group said.     [FULL  STORY]
