At least this is a start and a move in the right direction.

2017 is far off-a lot can change...the Communists are not going to give up much control. If they did, their would be uprisings throughout the mainland.

Little if any difference .All the candidates will be party members or supporters It will be a free election but only in that sense.Lenin started the practice and it has always remained that way in communist countries until the system collapsed .I can't see any imminent possibility of that happening in China
