China to Announce New Government Around Middle of October

Once-in-a-Decade Transition 

The buzz among veteran China watchers is that it will announce a new government a few weeks before the U.S. Presidential election on Tuesday, November 6, partly in order to upstage the event.

China is preparing for a once-in-a-decade transition of power. The political leadership can decide when it wants to reveal the makeup of the new government. Best Foreign Confidential™ guess: October 15-18.
