The nomination of persons with
both talents and ethics to leadership and management positions of the Party and
the State is a crucial and decisive task for the country's sustainable development.
Identifying the responsibility of nominators has been
considered a key in personnel work to select qualified officials to the
Prior to each National Party Congress, what concerns
officials, Party members and people most is how to prevent lobbying for position, power, and
personnel planning and rotation which roots from a degradation in political
ideology and morality among a contingent of officials and Party members.
A lot of work needs to be done to select persons with
both talents and ethics to leadership and management posts at different levels.
However, many said it requires clear regulations on the responsibility of
Nguyen Tuc, head of the Vietnam Fatherland Front
Central Committee’s consultation council for cultural-social affairs, pointed
to a number of officials growing rich “unexpectedly” but unable to declare their
assets, which has raised public concerns over the origins of their wealth.
There are also officials who sign unqualified
appointment decisions only few months ahead of their retirement, he said,
stressing the need to identify the responsibility of nominators.
Nominators have to take responsibility and be punished
if nominees are not eligible, Tuc stressed.
Echoing Tuc’s views, Le Thanh Van, permanent member
of the National Assembly’s Finance - Budget Committee, said nominators must know
well the talents and ethics of nominees and the nomination should not be driven
by private relations or lobbying.
The problem lies with how to separate individual and
collective responsibility, she said.
In an article on issues of special concern in
personnel preparations for the 13th National Party Congress, Party
General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong said the personnel work must
be a strict, scientific and consistent process in order to ensure objectivity
and democracy in the nomination and identification of the responsibility of
relevant individuals and collectives.
Associate Prof. Dr. Bui Dinh Phong, from the Institute
of Ho Chi Minh and Party Leaders under the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of
Politics, said the word “responsibility” must be repeated in the time ahead.
The conscience of nominators is the most important, he
said, adding that they must work for the nation and people.
Those who have knowledge, mettle and responsibility for the people would nominate good candidates, he emphasised.
Many others stressed the need to pay attention to
building and perfecting relevant regulations and mechanisms, promote the role
of fatherland front, political-social organisations and people in this regard,
and step up inspections and supervision of organisations and Party members in
realising these regulations./.
