With the two-week legislative session beginning on Monday, the body is being asked to amend the Constitution so Xi can serve more than two terms in office, which could mean he remains China's leader for life.
Wang said proponents of the repeal suggested removing the limit would put the presidency on a par with the other two positions, which would help to protect the authority of the party's top leadership with Xi at its "core" and improve the leadership system - a line echoing an article in party mouthpiece People's Daily on Thursday and a government spokesperson's remarks on Sunday.
The constitutional amendment, which is nearly certain to be approved by China's rubber-stamp parliament in its annual session starting Monday, would effectively pave the way for Xi to stay in power indefinitely. Mao ruled for almost 30 years until his death in 1976. And look, he was able to do that.
"I think it's great", Trump added.
United States President Donald Trump expressed approval of China's decision to remove the two-term limit for the presidency, saying "we'll have to give that a shot someday".
Trump's announcement on Thursday sparked a flurry of counter-threats from other nations but its main trade rival, China, had avoided any overt warnings of potential retaliation until now.

Combined with Xi's plans to eliminate term limits on his rule and his consolidation of control over the military, a lack of public information about defence spending and military planning "pushes China towards a more authoritarian and militarised leadership", said Peter Jennings, executive director of the non-partisan Australian Strategic Policy Institute think-tank.
"It's something that he supports here in the United States".
India has opposed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor connecting China's Xinjiang with Gwadar as it passes through the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
President Xi is expected to be granted broad new powers by China's National People's Congress, which kicked off its annual session today. Still, the Trump administration has branded China a "revisionist" power and describes the country's efforts to alter worldwide norms as a threat to US security.
Chinese officials have defended the end of Xi's term limits as necessary to ensure continuity as Beijing undertakes a sprawling long-range agenda aimed at making state industry competitive and productive, developing profitable high-tech industry, reducing poverty and cleaning up China's battered environment.
There are about 3,000 delegates to China's National People's Congress, and theoretically they can vote any way they want.
