BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese President Hu Jintao’s political doctrine was enshrined in the Communist Party’s constitution on Sunday, the closing day of the Party’s largest gathering in five years.

Writing Hu’s “scientific concept of development” — an effort to temper growth with concern for environmental sustainability and economic equality — into the constitution allows him to take his place alongside former leaders Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping and Jiang Zemin in the pantheon of Chinese Communist greats.
