That was one of the key messages in minutes from a meeting issued last week by the secretariat of the Party’s Central Committee, after a meeting with General Secretary, President Nguyen Phu Trong in Hanoi regarding the congress.

The 13th national congress will take place in 2021 where a new batch of members of the Party will be elected.

Tran Quoc Vuong, Politburo member and permanent member of the secretariat, urged leaders of the Party’s units to comply with regulations on human resources planning, promotion and rotation, and applying preferential policies.

They must not introduce and promote into the Party officials that do not meet the State’s requirements on age, capability, credibility, have negative attitudes towards their jobs, and tend to avoid responsibilities, according to the minutes.

They must also abide with the State’s principles and promote the important role of leadership at their units, at the same time ensuring democracy, objectivity and transparency in the decision-making process, it added.

These principles are to be sustained and strengthened in difficult, complicated, sensitive circumstances, it said.

The Political Protection Department under the Ministry of Home Affairs and other internal political protection agencies were assigned to review and propose the political standards, as well as the number of posts, for officials under their authority.

These requests came with the realisation made by the Party’s Central Committee, Politburo and Secretariat that the Party members tend to develop wrong attitudes as their term comes to an end, including laziness, avoiding difficult tasks, and not complying with orders from higher level officials.
