General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong was re-elected on Sunday at the first plenum of the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee.

The plenum was convened in Hanoi to elect the Politburo, General Secretary, Secretariat, Central Inspection Committee, and Chairman of the Central Inspection Committee. 

Plenum attendees re-elected Nguyen Phu Trong as General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam for this 13th tenure lasting for five years.

General Secretary Trong, who was born in Hanoi in 1944, has assumed his position since 2011, according to his biography.

He has a PhD in politology, specializing in Party building, alongside a BA in literature.

He was the chairman of Vietnam’s lawmaking National Assembly from 2006 to 2011.

He has been State President since October 2018.  

The 13th National Party Congress, which is organized every five years to pick Vietnam’s new leadership, will resume and conclude on Monday to report on the result of the election of the Politburo, General Secretary, Secretariat, Central Inspection Committee, and Chairman of the Central Inspection Committee. 

The Congress, which has taken place since January 25, takes a day off on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Congress annunced a list of 200 people elected to the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee, including 180 full and 20 alternate members. 

The Committee is the highest authority within the Communist Party of Vietnam between two Congress editions.
