BEIJING - A spokesman for the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) said Wednesday the new lineup of top CPC leaders will meet domestic and foreign journalists after the congress.

Upon the conclusion of the congress, which will be held from Nov 8 to 14, the 18th CPC Central Committee and the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection will hold their first plenary sessions respectively to elect their new leading bodies, spokesman Cai Mingzhao said at a press conference.
