Is Chinese President Xi Jinping Under House Arrest?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Rumours are circulating online claiming that Chinese President Xi Jinping is under house arrest and has been confined to his house. This comes as Xi’s removal as the head of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has prompted widespread fears for his well-being. However, the Chinese President has been spotted on several occasions, most recently at a SCO summit, where he met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The two leaders met for the first time since border clashes in 2020, so this story is not yet definite.

Recent events have made coup rumors in China more frequent and intense. These rumors could be driven by domestic and foreign forces trying to weaken the CCP and rattle Xi Jinping’s supporters. As a result, Xi may be facing more political challenges than ever.

Rumours have spread that Xi Jinping is under house arrest after a series of arrests. The arrests of two former CCP members and a top leader has led to the arrest of many other people. The Chinese Communist Party’s 5-yearly congress will start on October 16 and Xi Jinping is likely to get his third term, making him China’s most powerful leader since Mao Zedong.

Xi’s absence from a recent seminar has sparked a wave of panic among Chinese citizens. Reports of canceled flights and trains and buses in Beijing also fueled rumours. One person also shared a video claiming that a large military column was headed towards the capital, but the video turned out to be unrelated to the coup rumors.
