HÀ NỘI — Candidate picks for top Party posts are all qualified and capable to lead the country’s development in the new era, delegates told the media on Friday on the sidelines of the ongoing 13th National Party Congress.

The Congress, which convened this week to vote for 200 members on the Communist Party Central Committee, is expected to lay out the development courses for the country not only in the short-term, but also with an ambitious vision of a high-income developed socialist nation by 2045, when the country marks its 100th independence anniversary.

Starting from Thursday afternoon, the nearly 1,600 delegates will dedicate almost three days to hearing reports on the candidates and consider their votes.

Võ Hồng Hải, head of the organisation commission of Hà Tĩnh Province's Party Committee, said the candidates for the Party Central Committee positions have been considered carefully to reconcile the relationship between continuity and renewal, between composition of the organ and the required standards for the eligible candidates, between classes, regions as well as important sectors.

“We will definitely not lower the qualification barriers to satisfy the demands for quota. The Party Central Committee stands for the wisdom, will, and aspirations of more than five million members of the Communist Party of Việt Nam along with the entire Vietnamese people,” Hải said, adding that whether one meets the required criteria for the positions matters a great deal.

This is not only true at the highest level of the Party, but also applicable also at the local level, Hải said.

Bùi Chí Thành, Chair of Việt Nam Fatherland Front Committee of Bà Rịa-Vũng Tàu Province, said the personnel preparations for the current congress commenced since early in the last term.

The preparations have been “conscientious, meticulous and stringent”, with many levels of government and Party contributing feedback, showcasing a high level of democratic openness.

“The comrades who have been nominated for this tenure have been evaluated via an objective, democratic process throughout their entire working duration,” Thành remarked.

Thành also expects that this Congress would be able to elect a Party Central Committee that comprises ‘outstanding comrades among the outstanding comrades’ to lead the country’s development and elevate the profile of Việt Nam in the international arena.

Trần Quốc Nam, Chairman of Ninh Thuận Province People’s Committee and vice secretary of Ninh Thuận Party Committee, said all delegates have a ‘high sense of responsibility’ and will vote for a Party Central Committee that is ‘in line with the Party’s intention and people’s will.’

He trusts the Party Central Committee will bring about the achievements that the people have entrusted them with.

Sharing the opinion, Secretary of Lào Cai Province’s Party Committee Đặng Xuân Phong told the media that “scrupulous personnel preparations” will “earn the confidence of the entire Vietnamese people.”

“Entrusted with the responsibility to pick out the members of the Party Central Committee, we as delegates will be making decisions carefully and thoughtfully as to who we deem could meet the country’s development demands,” Phong stressed. — VNS
