Candidates for China's ruling body selected

CHINA'S ruling communists were handed a list of carefully selected candidates for their new Central Committee ahead of a tightly circumscribed vote at the party congress in Beijing to select a new leadership.

The margin for the election of committee members is slightly more than 8pc, meaning there are 108 candidates for every 100 seats, the party said, though it did not give the exact number.

The measure is intended to introduce a degree of competition amid calls for greater intra-party democracy within the one-party system.
