The decision was made at the 14th plenum of the 12th Communist Party of Viet Nam Central Committee (CPVCC) last week.

Viet Nam holds National Party Congress every five years, with the next Congress scheduled to take place in early 2021.

The congress, the most important political event of Vietnam next year, will choose new party leadership and propose candidates for the country's top positions. It will also set orientation and a roadmap for the country's development in the next 25 years.

A National Party Congress have main duties: it approves the Political Report, adopts Viet Nam’s Socio-Economic Plan for the next five and 10 years, amends Party Statutes, and most importantly, elects new Party Central Committee.

The newly-elected Party Central Committee will then convene first Plenum to elect the Party General Secretary, the Secretariat, and Head of the Party Central Committee's Inspection Commission and its members.

At the plenary meeting, the Party Central Committee discussed and adopted draft documents including a political report, a report evaluating the implementation of the 2011-20 socio-economic development strategy and the building of the 2021-30 socio-economic development strategy, and a report reviewing the realization of socio-economic tasks during the 2016-20 period and orientations and tasks for 2021-25.

At the plenum, the participants voted candidates for the Politburo, the country’s most powerful body, and the Secretariat, the CPV’s executing body that oversees the party’s daily issues.

The final decision on the personnel might be made at the 15th plenum, the agency reported, giving no specific time of the meeting.

Personnel of the Politburo and the Secretariat include members of the 12th congress re-elected and those are admitted to the bodies for the first time.

The Politburo of the 12th National Congress has 16 members (19 initially, including late President Tran Dai Quang who passed away in 2018, Dinh The Huynh retired for health reasons, and Dinh La Thang expelled from the Party for legal violations) while the Secretariat has 14 members.
