"Loyal Communist Party members" urged Chinese President and General Secretary of the Communist Party of China Xi Jinping to resign in an open letter released Wednesday. 

"On the occasion of the national 'Two Sessions', we write this letter asking you to resign from all Party and state leadership positions. We make this request out of consideration for the Party cause, out of consideration for the nation and its people -- and also out of consideration for your personal safety and that of your family," the letter said. 

The urge for resignation comes days after Xi emphasized government control of the media with a visit to top state media outlets where he stressed that news must "speak for the Party". 

According to the letter, Chinese president's "abandonment of important Party tradition, including most significantly the abandonment of the democratic system of the collective leadership of the Standing Committee... has resulted in an excessive concentration of power."

The criticism of the Chinese leader has touched four various speheres: political, economic, ideological, and cultural.

After indicating the unprecedented problems and crises in the mentioned spheres, the letter concluded that Xi Jinping does not "possess the capabilities to lead the Party and the nation into the future."

"For the Party cause, for the long-term peace and stability of the country, and for your own personal safety and that of your family, we ask you to resign from all positions of Party and state leadership, and let the Party Central Committee and the people of the nation select a virtuous leader who can vigorously lead us into the future," the letter concluded.
