APTOPIX China Politics
A Chinese security person looks back near rows of journalists covering a plenary session of the National People's Congress where Communist party chief Xi Jinping is expected to be named as the new Chinese President at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, Thursday, March 14, 2013. China's new leader Xi Jinping capped his rise Thursday by adding the largely ceremonial title of president, though he will need cautious maneuvering to consolidate his power and build support from a public that is increasingly clamoring for change.
