BEIJING -- The Chinese Communist Party is planning a key historical overview previously issued only under Mao Zedong and Deng Xiaoping as President Xi Jinping steps up his push to secure a third term as leader at the party congress next fall and usher in a new age.

The Central Committee will review a "key resolution on the major achievements and historical experience of the party's 100 years of endeavors" during a Nov. 8-11 plenary session, the official Xinhua News Agency reported Monday after a Politburo decision.
