HÀ NỘI — The 12th Central Committee of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV) discussed in groups reports on the leadership and direction work of the CPV Politburo and Secretariat in 2018 during the first day of the committee’s 9th session yesterday.
During the two-day session, members of the Party Central Committee are expected to discuss the personnel planning of the CPV Central Committee for the 2021-26 tenure, and conduct a vote of confidence on members of the Party Central Committee’s Politburo and Secretariat.
They will give comments on a review report on the leadership and direction work of the Politburo and Secretariat in 2018.
The Party Central Committee will also consider and take disciplinary measures against officials violating the Party’s regulations.
During the opening sitting, Party General Secretary and President Nguyễn Phú Trọng delivered opening remarks, in which he stressed issues on the agenda were all important, and participants must uphold their responsibility to actively engage in discussions and issue a resolution at the end of the session.
“Personnel work is considered key in Party building, which is the cause of all causes, and is the decisive factor for the success or failure of the revolution,” he said, adding that in personnel work, the personnel planning is the very first stage, having an extremely important meaning, ensuring that personnel work in order and meet requirements.
According to Trọng, the 12th Central Committee had drawn lessons from the previous 11th Central Committee and determined to implement personnel planning in a more fundamental and methodical way.
“In the process of implementation, it must be very careful, ensuring the principle of democratic centralism and the Party’s regulations on personnel work must be truly focused and objective,” Trọng added.
“Unqualified people, especially those who show signs of deterioration in political ideology, morality, lifestyle, ‘self-evolution’, ‘self-transformation’, and those who show deviant viewpoints, loss of solidarity or corruption must be eliminated from the list of personnel planning,” he stressed.
According to the Party leader, based on a list of nearly 250 recommended comrades, 200 have been chosen for consideration at the 12th Central Committee.
Regarding the vote of confidence on members of the Party Central Committee’s Politburo and Secretariat, Trọng said it was a very important and sensitive task.
He urged each member of the 12th Central Committee to give well considered assessment, making the vote truly democratic, objective and fair to strengthen solidarity and unity in the Party; not to let evil and hostile forces take advantage to distort or destroy.
Trọng stressed that the working agenda and duration of this session are short, but the issues to be debated and decided are very important.
In the afternoon, the Party Central Committee members studied documents and conducted a vote of confidence on the members of the Politburo and the Secretariat. — VNS
