Health problems cited by officials who have resigned cause doubts among public

Many people wondered what illness had caused Binh Duong Province's Party Secretary Tran Van Nam to resign from the National Assembly, while many others questioned "whether he failed in the National Assembly election".

In the past few days, the public has heard about the health problems of the Secretary of the Party Committee of Binh Duong Province – Mr. Tran Van Nam – after the local media reported that Nam had resigned from the membership of the 15th National Assembly due to "poor health conditions".

Many people wondered what illness had caused him to resign from the National Assembly, while many others questioned "whether he failed in the National Assembly election".

The election results released by the National Election Council on June 10 showed that Nam won the election with 425,941 votes, reaching 80.88%.

The "poor health conditions" reason that he cited for his resignation was apparently correct. However, only Nam and his doctor really know.

It turned out the National Election Council issued a resolution with 100% consensus to not recognize the election results and did not confirm the status of the 15th National Assembly deputy of the Party Secretary of the southern province of Binh Duong.

So whether he is healthy or not has nothing to do with Nam’s resignation of National Assembly membership.

According to Head of the National Assembly Deputies Affairs Commission Nguyen Thi Thanh, the National Election Council did not receive the application for "not being a member of the 15th National Assembly" because of poor health of the Party Secretary of Binh Duong Province.

Thanh said that even if the council had received Nam's application, it would not be the reason for the Council’s resolution.

The Council issued a separate resolution not to recognize the election results and not to confirm the status of a member of the 15th National Assembly of Nam, as he did not meet the criteria, Thanh said.

But Nam is a member of the Party Central Committee, a Provincial Party Secretary, and the matter of standards and conditions must have been "checked" very carefully before.

According to Thanh, the Central Inspection Committee’s recent inspection detected signs of violations of the Binh Duong Provincial Standing Party Committee and a number of violations and shortcomings of the committee’s Party Secretary.

 

Specifically, Nam violated regulations on what party members are not allowed to do. In addition, while he was Vice Chairman of Binh Duong Province, he made a number of decisions related to state management, especially land issues, that caused serious consequences.

So everything is clear, except for the "poor health" reason given by Binh Duong Province’s Party Secretary himself.

“Unbelievable” reason

At the press conference on the afternoon of May 21 about the preparation for election day, there were two candidates for the 15th National Assembly election who entered the official list after three rounds of consultation who also withdrew from the election, citing “poor health”.

A few years ago, several National Assembly deputies resigned from the National Assembly membership for "health reasons".

In 2017, after the conclusion of the Secretariat of the Central Party Committee on violations related to the Formosa case, former Party Chief and Chairman of the central province of Ha Tinh Vo Kim Cu submitted an application to resign from the 14th National Assembly membership for "health reasons".

In 2019, the Head of the Internal Affairs Department of the Dong Nai Provincial Party Committee, and Head of the National Assembly Delegation of Dong Nai province Ho Van Nam also submitted an application to resign from the National Assembly membership for "health reasons". And it was coincidental that at that time the Central Inspection Committee asked the Secretariat to take disciplinary action against Nam.

This story was once explained by former Secretary of the National Assembly Nguyen Hanh Phuc. After being disciplined, these officials' health may have been affected and they resigned "for health reasons".

No matter how it is explained, the "health reason" in these cases is still hard to be believe.
