China’s largely rubber-stamp Parliament on Saturday unanimously re-elected Xi Jinping as the country’s president.

The vote was witnessed by journalists inside central Beijing’s Great Hall of the People.

The legislature is packed with delegates loyal to the ruling Communist Party meaning Xi’s re-election was never in doubt.

Last Sunday, Parliament voted to amend the Constitution to remove presidential term limits, meaning Xi can stay indefinitely.
