Notice I wrote "appointed" and not "elected"? Because that's how this poor excuse of a country rolls folks.
Anyways....they appointed a new leader named Xi and now no one knows where the guy is. If he's never found, the rest of the world deserves to investigate his disappearance....
The Leader Vanishes
"The 11-day disappearance of Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping brings to mind the 1938 Alfred Hitch**** classic "The Lady Vanishes." We're not suggesting that the man who will soon become China's paramount leader was abducted aboard a train, but that's a more plausible explanation than many of the rumors circulating in Beijing."

The most plausible speculation centers on some sort of health crisis, ranging from a muscle pulled while swimming or during a pickup soccer game, to a stroke or a heart attack. But some of the more far-fetched rumors have imagined him the victim of an assassination attempt or a political feud with outgoing President Hu Jintao over the pace of political reform.
The latest claim, appearing Wednesday on Hong Kong's iSun Affairs website and sourced to an unidentified relative of Xi's, said he was merely busy preparing for the political transition and accompanying political reforms. It said his health was fine.
But while party leaders' silence on the matter may be damaging, here's one thing it isn't: surprising. The country's top leaders live and work in a protective bubble with little exposure to public sentiment.
The party simply "does not think that the public has a right to know about the affairs of leading personnel unless the message is carefully controlled and positive," said Harvard University China expert Anthony Saich.
