A Christian religious freedom campaigner has said China’s parliament approving the removal of presidential term limits has paved the way for continued Christian persecution in the country that may worsen. The National People's Congress' nearly 3,000 hand-picked delegates endorsed the constitutional amendment on Sunday, voting 2,958 in favour with two opposed, three abstaining and one vote invalidated. It means President Xi Jinping can rule indefinitely. Benedict Rogers, East Asia team leader at religious freedom charity Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) said the vote is an “extremely significant development, which will in all likelihood mean a continuing crackdown on human rights generally, and religious freedom in particular”.
