Xi’s accrual of power seems to resonate with Chinese public

In this Oct. 23, 2017 photo, Chinese couple is silhouetted in front of a picture of Chinese President Xi Jinping with children at an exhibition highlighting China’s achievements under five years of his leadership at the Beijing Exhibition Hall in the capital city where the 19th Party Congress is held. The exhibition coincides with the twice-a-decade national congress, and the two events, one teeming with ordinary citizens, the other under tight security, show how Xi has centralized power and is leading China into a confident, gleaming new era. It’s an approach to governing that seems to have strong resonance with China’s public. (AP Photo/Andy Wong)
