China may add Xi imprint to party charter

Amendment likely at party congress in October

Bookstores in China carry many works on Xi Jinping's thoughts.

BEIJING -- The Chinese Communist Party will revise its constitution at next month's National Congress, but it is still unclear whether President Xi Jinping's name will be attached to the changes, an honor that would elevate him above his recent predecessors.

The ruling Politburo discussed the matter and confirmed the direction Monday, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
