FILE - In this March 14, 2013 file photo, a board displays the tally of votes cast for the China's next President Xi Jinping during a plenary session of the National People's Congress held at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. Each was handed a ballot with one name on it: Xi Jinping. Each dropped it in a box. No mark was required to vote for Xi, so calling it rubberstamping suggests more work than there actually was. Any suspense about the choice of the Communist Party leadership was lifted in November, when Xi became the ruling party's general secretary. Thursday's vote by nearly 3,000 delegates for Xi's more ceremonial title of president was a mere ritual. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan, File)
