China’s President Xi Jinping has unveiled the lineup of the ruling Communist Party’s highest body -- the Politburo Standing Committee -- that will lead the world’s second-largest economy for the next five years. Apart from 64-year-old Xi, Li Keqiang, 62, was the only committee member to retain his position. Five new appointments, all men in their 60s, were made to the seven-member committee. The absence of any younger members will fuel speculation about Xi’s long-term intentions and his eventual successor.
