Vietnam’s lawmaking National Assembly agreed on Thursday to remove Vuong Dinh Hue from the legislature chair role for the 2021-26 term and to relieve him of the duty as a deputy of the 15th National Assembly.

The 7th extraordinary session of the 15th National Assembly was convened in Hanoi on Thursday afternoon to consider the dismissal of the National Assembly chair for the 2021-26 tenure.

The session was also meant to approve the dismissal of Hue as a member of the Council for National Defense and Security, and to remove him from the responsibility of a delegate of the 15th National Assembly from the Hai Phong City delegation.

After listening to proposals and statements made by Hue, the National Assembly conducted discussions, held a secret ballot, and passed a resolution to dismiss him from the National Assembly chairmanship for the 2021-26 tenure.

The legislative body also approved the nullification of his membership in the Council for National Defense and Security as well as canceled his role as a delegate of the 15th National Assembly.

The 13th Party Central Committee had convened a meeting in Hanoi on April 26 to discuss and give opinions on relieving Hue of all his political roles and ending his public service.

Hue, born in 1957, was a key leader of the Party and the state who received fundamental training and rose through the ranks from grassroots levels to hold many important positions in the political apparatus.

However, reports from the Central Inspection Commission and relevant authorities indicated that he had flouted regulations prohibiting certain actions for Party members.

He failed to meet the obligation of demonstrating exemplary behavior for officials and Party members, which is especially vital for those in the Politburo, Secretariat, and Party Central Committee.

Moreover, he was held accountable as a leader in accordance with Party rules and state laws.

Hue's transgressions and shortcomings provoked unfavorable public opinion, tarnishing the prestige of the Party and the state, as well as his own reputation.

Having a clear understanding of his responsibilities to the Party, the state, and the people, he submitted a request to give up all of his assigned positions and duties.

In accordance with current Party and state regulations and taking into account Hue's preferences, the Party Central Committee then decided to relieve him of the following roles: member of the Politburo, member of the 13th Party Central Committee, and chairman of the 15th National Assembly for the 2021-26 term.
