HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary Nguyễn Phú Trọng last Saturday signed the Politburo’s first regulation on personnel rotation, aiming at reducing redundancy and ensuring administrative leadership in disadvantaged areas.
Regulation 98-QD/TW aims to implement a more effective personnel strategy when the process of national industrialisation and modernisation is being enhanced. As such, it supplements earlier resolutions, including Resolution 11 on the rotation of senior, managerial personnel issued by the Politburo’s ninth tenure.
It specifies the purposes, requirements, principles and targeted positions for the reshuffle, rotation criteria, process and duration, benefits for transferred personnel, and supervision of rotation and handling of violations in the process.
Under the new resolution, any official within the political system can be transferred to a different job, especially to disadvantaged areas in need. The move also aims to deal with the problem of personnel redundancy and resultant inefficiency.
The rotation of officials also aims at filling key provincial and district positions with officials who are not local residents, while preventing officials from holding a position for more than two consecutive terms.
The personnel rotation must happen under the leadership of Party committees at all levels, and ensure the principle of democratic centralism, the regulation says.
Only senior and managerial cadre will be rotated under this regulation. It will not apply to those doing specialised work, except when there is a need for such staff in certain spheres or localities.
The regulation stipulates that those who are transferred must be young, promising officials with good capacity, political virtues and moral lifestyles.
The reshuffling of managerial cadre can be made between central and local levels, between localities, and among agencies of the Party, the State, the Vietnam Fatherland Front, socio-political organisations, armed forces, public service units and State-owned enterprises.
A person must hold a position for at least three years before being transferred, the regulation says.
Regulation 98-QD/TW was promulgated during the sixth session of the 12th Party Central Committee that is taking place in Hà Nội. — VNS
