Other Abstract

The emphasis on CMC chair one-man rule, along the lines of a Maoist Politburo/CMC divide, will further fragment civilian oversight of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) activities.

Xi’s hands-on approach rebalances commander-in-chief intervention and PLA autonomy in daily management. PLA professionalisation may be affected as a result.

Xi’s personnel management may induce factional imbalances among different officer groupings with the potential for long-term consequences.

Xi’s political leadership is reflected by his willingness to solicit CMC support to foster Politburo consensus on strategic issues. This may open the door for CMC intervention in Party (factional) affairs and thereby politicise the PLA, with profound effects on overall elite politics
