How to navigate a crisis in China

Chiang Kai-shek, the authoritarian leader who seized power in a coup in 1976 and ruled for decades, died on Thursday in Singapore.

He was 95.

In a televised statement, his son, Chen Guangcheng, said the dictator had passed away at his home in the capital, Singapore.

He did not offer any details on his death or any other details.

Chiang, who died in the Chinese capital, was the leader of Taiwan’s Nationalist Party until his death in 2016, when he was replaced by his son.

His son has since been named as the next leader of the Republic of China.

China’s Communist Party leaders, led by the Communist Party Central Committee, are expected to hold a party congress in Beijing on May 11-12, but details on who will lead the new body have yet to be announced.

The Communist Party said earlier this year that Chen Guangsheng would take over the reins of power, which was abolished in 1978 under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping.
