what will paradoxically "keep them in power" will be competitive elections

I realize the following question calls for wild speculation, particularly since it isn't easy to discern the level of (muted) dissent across China, though I have not seen it discussed (and I have never been to China and don't know it well enough to begin to speculate).

My question is: What do you think is the likelihood that China's leaders would retain power if the country moved to free and fair elections? And I would even be satisfied with speculation if we were to adopt the assumption that China's economy continues to flourish and grow leading up to such elections.

Though I am responding to Tim's statement, I'd welcome anyone's thoughts here.
