Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Tran Hong Ha and secretary of the Party Committee of northern Hai Phong City Tran Luu Quang have been picked as the new deputy prime ministers of Vietnam for the 2021-26 tenure.

The lawmaking National Assembly (NA) on Thursday adopted a resolution approving the appointment of the two new deputy prime ministers, with a majority of lawmakers voting in favor.

They replaced their predecessors, Pham Binh Minh and Vu Duc Dam, who were relieved from their posts earlier.

Minh and Dam were also relieved from the Party Central Committee at an extraordinary meeting last Friday. In addition, Minh was dismissed from the all-powerful Politburo.

Tran Hong Ha, 60, a native of the north-central province of Ha Tinh, was an alternate member of the 11th Party Central Committee and an official member of the committee in the12th tenure.

He is now a member of the committee in the 13th tenure and a deputy of the 15th NA.

He was deputy secretary of the Party Committee of southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province between 2009 and 2010.

He became Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Environment in 2010.

Ha has been Minister of Natural Resources and Environment since April 2016.

Meanwhile, Tran Luu Quang, 56, a native of southern Tay Ninh Province, was an alternative member of the 11th Party Central Committee and an official member of the committee in the 12th tenure.

He is currently a member of the committee in the 13th tenure and a deputy of the 15th NA as well.

Quang used to serve as standing vice-chairman of the People’s Committee, secretary of the Party Committee, and chairman of the People’s Council of Tay Ninh.

On February 27, 2019, the Politburo picked him as standing deputy secretary of the Party Committee of Ho Chi Minh City before appointing him to the post of secretary of the Party Committee of Hai Phong City in May 2021.

Thus, the Vietnamese government is now led by Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and has four deputy prime ministers: Le Minh Khai, Le Van Thanh, Tran Hong Ha, and Tran Luu Quang.
