ĐÀ NẴNG — The Đà Nẵng City People’s Council unanimously voted to oust Nguyễn Xuân Anh as its chairman on Friday morning.
The vote was carried out during an unusual meeting of the Council, presided over by deputy chairman Nguyễn Nho Trung.
All 49 members of the council raised their hands to vote in favor of a resolution dismissing Anh as the council chairman and member.
The dismissal decision will be reported to the National Assembly’s Standing Committee for final approval.
On October 6, the Party Central Committee (PCC) fired Anh as the Đà Nẵng Party Committee Secretary and a PCC member.
The stunning fall of 41-year-old Anh came after a report by the PCC’s Inspection Commission in September.
It concluded that Anh had violated “democratic principles” by making arbitrary appointments to municipal government positions. He had also breached the Party’s code of ethics by inappropriately claiming academic qualifications, the report said.
His wrongdoings and mistakes were “serious, harming the prestige of the Party and himself, and causing discontent among Party members and people”, the PCC concluded. — VNS
