Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 5, 1973 CHINESE CONGRESS CLEARS WAY FOR LEADERSHIP CHANGE Bv KEVIN DOYLE Canadian Press Staff Writer The I0th congress of the Chi- nese Communist party, presided by Chairman Mao Tse- tung. sceins to have cleared tne way" for a major leadership in the future, without precipitating any disruptive pol- icy changes. The rnain question hanging Chinese politics for some time has been who will replace the 80-j ear-old Map and his 75- year-oM prime minister, Chou En-lai, when they to step Uown. The Peking congress appears to have resolved this dilemma by creating the embryo of a col- lective leadership to succeed Mao and Chou. The delegates elected a new central committee of the party, which, in theory, is the country's ultimate ruling body. In fact, however, the new po- litburo. -which the committee chooses, is a far more powerful acencv and the decision of the congress to make provision for la permanent standing com- mittee within the politburo ap parently enhances this strength. It is the standing committee. China-watchers believe, which will form the governing organ- ization when the present lead- ership retires. Meanwhile, both Mao and Chou remain firmly in control of Chinese affairs But experts expect Chou gradually to unload some of his responsibilities on the new No. 3 man in the gov- ernment hierarchy. The comer, Wang Hung' wen. was elected to the stand- ing committee in one of the iew surprise developments at the five-day congress Wang, third ranking leader in Shanghai and believed to be only about 35, was shown in of- ficial photographs sitting on Chairman Mao's right during convention proceedings and is thought to be the Chinese leader's personal protege A brilliant political orator and administrator, Wang was pro- moted over the heads of radical header Chiang Ching, Mao's wife, and two of her supporters. Observers see this as an in- dication of the desire of most Chinese leaders to continue the policies of moderation towards the West, initiated within the last couple of years. It is a pol- icy to which Chiang has been ext-emely cool. The implications of Wang's new-found strength still are far from clear. But experts believe a number of clues were contained in his address to the congress when he stressed the danger of war with the Soviet Union and con- demned the Soviet version of Communism. They believe Wang will favor improved relations with the United States in order to free China's hands for defence against any threat from Mos- cow. His speech also seemed aimed clearly at gaining the maximum support from non- aligned countries whose leaders were about to meet in Algiers. Observers believe this may her- ald a new drive by Peking to enhance its influence through- out the Third World. Many experts argue that the congress was held with master- ful timing. During the next year, they say. the effectiveness of Wang'and new I committee can be tested safely, 'while the old remain comfortably in control. At the end of that time their performance can be reviewed and a final decision reached on whether to make the latest ar- rangement permanent.
