Hanoi (VNA) –
Party members and the public have expressed their approval of the Politburo’s new regulation on power control in personnel work, and the prevention of bribery to acquire high-ranking positions.

Regulation No. 205-QD/TW, which was made public on September 23, has attracted the special attention of officials, Party members and people of all social strata, as it comes in the run-up to all-level Party congresses, towards the 13th National Party Congress.

Overall opinions hope that with the new regulation, the all-level Party congresses will be able to elect officials who have both the talent and mortal virtue to lead the country forward.

Major General Nguyen Van Ninh, former deputy head of the Department of Operations under the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, said the 12th National Party Congress focused on Party building and rectification, one of which was personnel work correction.

The key to personnel work correction is controlling power of officials and preventing the use of bribery and influence for high-ranking positions, he said.

Ninh pointed out that many officials, including those holding high positions, have committed violations due to individualism. He said the use of bribery and influence for high-ranking positions has been prevalent, which goes with embezzlement and corruption. Many have promoted their subordinates based on connections and family relations instead of standards and performances, he added.

Heads of Party committees and organisations, and agencies must have good morals and sense of justice, set bright examples in the personnel work, and show their diligence, thrift, integrity and selflessness following the example of the late President Ho Chi Minh, he stressed.

Associate Prof. Nguyen Chi My, former member of the standing board of the Hanoi Party Committee and former head of the Hanoi Party Committee’s board for popularisation and education, said the issuance of Regulation No. 205-QD/TW is a timely move.

According to My, moral degradation and the use of bribery and influence for power and high-ranking positions are no longer isolated cases. The bad practice has become rather common in Party organisations and among officials and Party members over the past years, leading to the abuse of power.

HeMy said many officials, including those holding high positions, have been disciplined, sparking public concern.

The personnel work must strictly follow Party’s principles, while democracy and transparency must be ensured, he said.

My also highlighted the role of heads of Party committees in power control in the personnel work and the fight against bribery for acquiring power and high-ranking positions./.
