Hanoi (VNA) – The Politburo held a national cadres’
conference in Hanoi on November 19 to review the organisation of Party
congresses at all levels for the 2020-2025 tenure.
The event looked to share experience among Party
organisations nationwide, thus helping the Party Central Committee in
preparation for the 13th National Party Congress.
Speaking at the event, Party General Secretary and President
Nguyen Phu Trong said despite the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, natural
disasters, climate change, drought, saltwater intrusion and flooding in the
central region, Party congresses at all levels were held on schedule with
absolute safety and meeting set targets, thanks to high political determination
and responsibility of the entire political system, leaving deep impression on
officials, Party members and the public.
Discussions on draft documents of the 13th National Party Congress have become a widespread political activity among the
entire Party, people and armed forces.
Personnel work for the congresses was conducted with
democracy, objectiveness and transparency in line with principles and
regulations, ensuring the Party leadership. Requirements in terms of standards,
structure, number and qualifications of cadres were guaranteed. The ratios of
female and ethnic Party members in Party committees are higher than that in
Pointing out weaknesses and shortcomings, the Party leader said
due to loose leadership at several Party units, some complicated issues have
yet to be fully addressed. In some cases, too much attention was paid to
personnel work while the building of documents was neglected. Some Party
committees dared not to look at the truth, failing to point out mistakes or
clarify the responsibility of individuals and collectives for shortcomings. The
number of young officials in several units was low, failing to meet
requirements of the Politburo’s Directive No.35.
Regarding valuable lessons drawn from the preparations and
organisation of Party congresses at all levels, the Party chief called for
special importance to be attached to solidarity and unity in the Party. He
emphasized the responsibility to set good example of officials and Party
members with high positions.
In the building of documents, he urged deep understanding of
the Party’s guiding point of view and ideas, and the need to mobilise the
brainpower of Party units and people from walks of life, selectively inherit
lessons from previous tenures. The Party leader also laid stress on keeping up
to date with the real situation and directing public opinions via various
forms, especially on sensitive and complicated issues while providing full
information about the outcomes of the congresses for officials, Party members
and the public.
In the near future, he asked Party units and organisations
to promptly perfect and issue documents, assign work to cadres in accordance
with approved personnel plans and issue working regulations, action and
inspection programmes of Party committees, thus bringing Party congresses’ resolutions
He required that Party units and organisations should strive
to fulfill political tasks for 2020 and the entire tenure, inspire and
encourage patriotism and national sense of solidarity among the people for
development, and actively and resolutely smash reactionary plots by hostile
