able govern?

Postby pdh0224 » Tue Sep 21, 2004 1:06 am

Dear teacher,

While reading a paper, I came across an odd sentence.

The transition is a significant victory for Mr. Hu, a relatively unknown product of the Communist Party machine. He has solidified control of China's most powerful posts at a younger age - he is 61 - than any Chinese leader since Mao Zedong, and is now likely to be able govern relatively unimpeded by powerful elders.

Q : I think "governor" is a correct word in that case. What do you think?


All the best,

Or, more likely, 'to' has been accidentally omitted!
