This is how pathetic it looks when a Eurocentrist autocrat feels the need to pretend to be a democrat:

Delegates handed Mr Xi a third term as China’s president and re-elected him as head of the country’s Central Military Commission in a unanimous vote.
A digital monitor on the edge of the stage proclaimed the final tally – all 2,952 votes had been cast in favour of awarding Mr Xi another term in office.
In the oath, beamed live on state television across the nation, Mr Xi vowed to “build a prosperous, strong, democratic, civilized, harmonious and great modern socialist country”.

Not only will no one believe Xi's blatantly choreographed vote, but it just makes actual democratic countries look good in comparison because the implication is that they actually are what autocratic countries have to choreograph themselves to be.

Prof Steve Tsang, the director of the SOAS China Institute in London, told AFP: “We will see a China more assertive on the global stage, insisting its narrative be accepted.

Nothing could be further from the truth. To insist your narrative be accepted would first involve insisting that autocracy is superior to democracy. The above behaviour is a display of the exact opposite.
