Minh will also no longer hold position as member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Vietnam.
The decisions were made at an extraordinary meeting of the Party Central Committee in Hanoi on December 30.
The Party Central Committee also gave opinions on two candidates so that the Political Bureau would introduce them to the National Assembly for ratification to work as Deputy PMs for the 2021-2026.
The government for the 2021-2026 tenure has four Deputy PMs, namely Pham Binh Minh, Le Minh Khai, Vu Duc Dam and Le Van Thanh.
With the December 30 decisions, the government now has only two Deputy PMs who are members of the Party Central Committee.
The National Assembly is scheduled to hold an extraordinary session in Hanoi on January 5, 2023 to examine several urgent issues, including personnel.
