Skip to content Xi Jinping Narrowly Escaped Assassination Attempts; Is Ready for the Worst

On March 23, 2015, published an article titled “Xi Jinping Narrowly Escaped Assassination Attempts Several Times and Is Ready for the Worst.” It seems that the original news report from is no longer available. According to the article, Xi Jinping, the current General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and the President of the People’s Republic of China, has suffered 6 assassination attempts. Assassins hired internally within the Party have made such attempts from around the period of the 18th CCP National Congress from November 8 to 14, 2012, when he took power, up until the present day. To prepare for the worst, prior to August 1, 2014, Xi wrote a letter to the Central Politburo of the Chinese Communist Party and proposed that a five-regent team be established and ready for a power transition just in case. Li Keqiang, China’s current Premier of the State Council, was proposed as the head of the “Backup” leadership. Xi has also reshuffled the Central Security Bureau that is in charge of his personal safety, which confirms that he did not fully trust the original members of the security bureau.

Since Xi Jinping assumed power, he has carried out a powerful anti-corruption campaign within the Chinese Communist Party. Those whose powers and interests have been taken away, or who are still in danger, will not wait without a fight. After having taken down Zhou Yongkang and Xu Caihou, two important tigers from Jiang Zemin’s faction, Xi’s anti-corruption campaign has entered a critical stage. He still needs to face directly the "ultimate big tiger," Jiang Zemin, the retired top leader of the CCP, and his close allies.
