Hanoi (VNA) – Accelerating the study of President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, morals and lifestyle is a crucial content of Party building and reinforcement, said Dinh The Huynh, Politburo member and permanent member of the Party Central Committee Secretariat.

The move aims to build a pure and strong Party in terms of politics, ideology, organisation and morals, and a staff of capable and quality officials, he said at a teleconference in Hanoi on May 16 to review the five-year effectuation of the Politburo’s Directive No. 03-CT/TW on studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s moral example.

He said such efforts will help guard against degradation in political thought, morals and lifestyle while adding more strengths to the fight against corruption, wastefulness and bureaucracy.

The official noted that outcomes reaped during the actualisation of the Directive have effectively contributed to realising the Resolution on Party building adopted at the 11 th Party Central Committee’s fourth plenum as well as the 11 th National Party Congress’s Resolution.

Calling on the entire Party, population and army to continue responding to the campaign, Huynh stressed that studying and following Ho Chi Minh’s example should become a self-awareness and regular deed of all-level Party committees and organisations, authorities, the Vietnam Fatherland Front, socio-political organisations and localities.

Heads of these agencies, Party officials, public servants and young people should be the pioneers in the drive, he said.

A report presented by Politburo member Vo Van Thuong, who is also Secretary of the Party Central Committee and head of the Party Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission, showed that the campaign has helped raise awareness of not only Party officials but the public at large.

Party officials, especially those holding key positions, play a decisive role to the success of the drive, he said.

Other delegates at the event pointed to limitations and solutions to raise the efficiency of the work in the time ahead.

Nearly 720 collectives and individuals who made outstanding performances in the campaign were honoured on this occasion.-VNA
