Change at the top in China

A key party boss is accused of corruption. So who will lead the country next? It seems that old rules are being torn up.

News that the former party boss in Chongqing is being investigated for corruption removes him from the race to be next party and national leader. The future leadership of the party should have started becoming clearer later this year. Instead, it all seems up in the air.
