Vietnam’s lawmaking National Assembly (NA) elected Deputy Minister of Public Security Senior Lieutenant General Luong Tam Quang as minister for the 2021-26 tenure on Thursday afternoon.

Quang was backed by 468 out of 469 lawmakers joining the vote.

He took office after his predecessor To Lam had been relieved of the post for his election as state president.

Lam took an oath of allegiance as Vietnam's state president for the 2021-26 tenure before the NA in Hanoi on May 22.

The Ministry of Public Security currently has four deputy ministers, namely Senior Lieutenant General Tran Quoc To, Lieutenant General Le Quoc Hung, Lieutenant General Le Van Tuyen, and Lieutenant General Nguyen Van Long.

The newly-elected Minister of Public Security, born in Kim Dong District, Hung Yen Province in 1965, holds a bachelor's degree in law and security.

Before Quang was selected as deputy public security minister in 2019, he had held several key posts such as assistant to the deputy public security minister, deputy chief of the office of the ministry, and chief of the office and spokesperson.
