Chinese Communist Party to hold major congress from Oct. 15, state television reports

China's ruling Communist Party will hold a major congress beginning Oct. 15, state television reported Tuesday.
The Party Congress, held twice a decade, will set the agenda for the party and country and likely will include a reshuffling of some top leaders.
There will be no direct challenge to President Hu Jintao, who will see his five-year tenure as party leader renewed. But the congress will be an indication of the strength of Hu's authority to make appointments and pursue his policies.
The meeting comes as China faces increased media attention ahead of the Beijing Olympics, which start in just under one year.
