“The CPC 18th Party Congress successfully ended yesterday”

Dongnan Kuaibao 15 Nov

China’s newspapers went to press today before the new seven-member Politburo Standing Committee under Xi Jinping was presented to the media (see Shanghaiist for a recap). Hence, in uniform anticipation of tomorrow’s big news, they all today simply announced that the 18th Party Congress yesterday ended “successfully”.

We’ll do another review tomorrow when they will report on the events of today, and we’ll see if the newspapers might replace the image of Hu Jintao, which dominated today’s front pages, with that of Xi Jinping.
