China’s Premier Li Keqiang said on Friday that he will resign when his current term ends next March.

Li has been the premier of China’s ruling Communist Party since 2013, and his term is officially restricted to two terms.

“This is the last year I will be premier,” said Li. 

At a party conference this autumn to decide leaders for the next five years, President Xi Jinping is anticipated to secure a record-breaking third term as party boss.

China’s constitution was changed in 2015, removing the two-term restriction for presidents.

Party leaders have the power to appoint the next premier.
