XI Jinping

Xi Jinping is the president of the People’s Republic of China (PRC). He is the general secretary of the ‘Communist Party of China’ (CPC) and chairman of the ‘Central Military Commission’ (CMC). Since 2012, Xi Jinping has been the highest-ranking official in China. In 2016, he became the fourth person after Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, and Jiang Zemin to receive the ‘leadership core’ title from the CPC.

After becoming the president of PRC, Xi Jinping went on to introduce measures to enforce party discipline and internal unity. His far-reaching campaign against corruption led to the downfall of several ‘Communist Party’ officials. Xi is known and respected for his integrity, which he managed to keep intact despite the party being named in scandals.

Xi was born June 15, 1953, the son of a well-placed Chinese Communist Party leader, Xi Zhongxun, a former comrade of Communist China’s founder Mao Tse-tung. Considered a “princeling” — someone destined to rise within the government due to family connections — Xi’s destiny was altered when his father was purged from power in 1962. In 1966, Mao launched the Cultural Revolution, a sociopolitical movement intended to preserve “true” Communist ideology and purge remnants of capitalist society.

All formal education was halted, and Xi, at that time in high school, was sent down to work in a remote farming village for seven years, doing manual chores and subsisting on rice gruel. It was there that Xi grew up both physically and mentally. Considered a weakling when he first arrived, he grew strong and compassionate and developed good relations working alongside the villagers. Though the Cultural Revolution was a failure, Xi emerged with a sense of idealism and pragmatism.

Fulfilling one of his early promises, Xi almost immediately embarked on a campaign to deal with government corruption. He arrested some of the country’s most powerful figures, including former security chief Zhou Yongkang, and by the end of 2014 the CCP had disciplined more than 100,000 officials.

However, the Chinese leader has drawn scrutiny for his methods. Critics have noted that his crackdown on government corruption mainly targeted political opponents, and the CCP has come under fire by human rights groups for jailing journalists, lawyers and other private citizens. Under Xi’s reach, censors have sought to eliminate Western influence in school curriculums and limited the public’s internet access.XI Jinping is one of the powerful political leaders in the world. He is also one of the famous politician in the world.

David Cameron

David Cameron was leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister of the UK (2010-16). In the 2015 General Election, he promised a referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU. Despite campaigning for a Remain vote, the UK voted to Leave 52% – 48%. After the referendum defeat, he resigned as Prime Minister.

During his term in office, he presided over a period of economic austerity and also a Referendum on Scottish Independence, where he successfully campaigned for a No Vote. Cameron is considered a ‘One Nation Conservative’ – socially liberal, but still representative of the traditional Conservative beliefs.

David Cameron was born on 9 October, 1966, in London, England. His parents, Ian Donald Cameron and Mary Fleur, were business leaders. He spent his childhood in Berkshire. He attended ‘Heatherdown School’ and ‘Eton College,’ finishing his early education in 1984. Graduating from ‘Oxford’ (Brasenose College) in 1988, Cameron received a first class degree in philosophy, politics and economics (PPE). While at ‘Oxford,’ he was a member of the exclusive and controversial ‘Bullingdon Club.’

In 2003, he was appointed shadow minister in the Privy Council and vice chairman of the Conservative party. In 2005, Michael Howard resigned as leader of the Conservative party, leaving the leadership wide open. Despite his young age and relative lack of experience, he gained support from some key party members.

The party was keen to look towards a new generation, who could perhaps compete with a revitalised ‘New Labour’ party. At the 2005 party conference, he tapped into this by making a well-received speech in which he spoke of making people ‘feel good to be Conservatives again’ and inspiring a new generation. Despite finishing second in the first ballot, he went on to win, beating more established names. He is one of the most popular politician in the world.

Narendra Modi

Narendra Damodardas Modi is India’s 14th and current prime minister since 2014 after an impressive victory by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). An interesting fact about Modi is that he became Chief Minister of Gujarat as a first time MLA. Similarly he became the prime minister of India as a first time MP. Modi is credited with leading the BJP in 2014 to a majority in Lok Sabha and this is for the first time since 1984. Born to a Gujarati family in Vadnagar, Modi had humble beginnings when he helped his father sell tea following which he set his own tea-stall allegedly.

Narendra Modi was born in the small town of Vadnagar, in northern Gujarat, India. His father was a street merchant who struggled to support the family. Young Narendra and his brother sold tea near a bus terminal to help out. Though an average student in school, Modi spent hours in the library and was known as a strong debater. In his early teens, he joined Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, the student wing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist political party. Modi had an arranged marriage at 18 but spent little time with his bride. The two eventually separated, with Modi claiming to be single for some time.

Modi, as a child, not only supported his family but also extended support to Indian Army soldiers. During the Indo-Pakistan War of 1965, he would rush to serve hot masala chai to soldiers when the train would arrive at the local railway station. During his school days, PM Modi acted in a number of plays. He was barely 13 or 14 when he enacted a play to raise funds to repair a broken wall of his school in his hometown.

However, the fall of the Barak administration rekindled his political ambitions and he returned to politics, eventually becoming the prime minister again in 2009.

He served as deputy minister of foreign affairs (1988–91) and then as a deputy minister in Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir’s coalition cabinet (1991–92).

Netanyahu became noted for his opposition to the 1993 Israel-PLO peace accords and the resulting Israeli withdrawals from the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

For the first time in Israeli history, voters could choose the prime minister and the Knesset representatives separately. On May 29, 1996, Netanyahu was elected prime minister, winning by a less than one percent margin to the surprise of many. He was the youngest man to ever hold the position. His election stunned the international community, who now feared that the hard-won Oslo agreements of 1992 and 1993, which Netanyahu inherited but did not like, would be railroaded by Israeli conservatives.

Shinjo Abe is the prime minister of Japan from September 2006 to September 2007 and became prime minister again in 2012 with a promise to fix Japan’s ailing economy (following policies that were dubbed “Abenomics”). He is a right-wing politician from a family with deep political roots who belongs to Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party.

Abe was born on September 21, 1954, in Tokyo, Japan (some sites incorrectly list Nagato, which is Abe’s hometown in the Yamaguchi prefecture, as his birthplace). Abe’s father, Shintaro Abe, was a foreign minister; following his father’s death in 1991, Abe ran for and won his seat in the Diet in 1993. After World War II, Abe’s maternal grandfather, Nobusuke Kishi — who’d worked as an industrial planner in Japanese-occupied Manchuria in the 1930s — was arrested as a Class A war criminal. He was not indicted, and his anti-communist views helped secure his release in 1948. Kishi served as prime minister from 1957 to 1960. Like Abe, he wanted to alter the pacifist Article 9 in Japan’s constitution.

Abe is a conservative who believes in increasing Japan’s ability to defend itself, a goal shared by his maternal grandfather, who also served as one of Japan’s prime ministers. However, the priority for Abe’s second term has been rebuilding Japan’s troubled economy. In 2012 Abe campaigned on boosting Japan’s economy, which had the problems of ongoing deflation, an aging population, the aftereffects of the 2007-2008 financial crisis and a devastating earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Abe’s economic policy — known as “Abenomics” — consists of three arrows: monetary easing, the stimulus of increased government spending and structural reform.

Shinjo Abe played important role in the development of Japan. He is one of the most popular politician in the world. He is also one of the powerful person in the world.
