BEIJING — China officially began its once-in-a-decade power transition today, with President Hu Jintao calling for vigilance against government corruption and saying the ruling Communist Party is at a critical juncture in its history.
Hu, who will move out of the country’s top political post in the coming months and is expected to be replaced by Vice Premier Xi Jinping next March, gave a state of the union-like address to more than 2,100 Party delegates at the opening of the 18th National Congress in Beijing. The congress will select a new ruling Politburo and pave the way for Hu to relinquish the reins.
