Hanoi (VNA) – Members of the 12th Party Central Committee passed a number of important documents that lay the foundation for the stronger reform of the Party’s administration and renovation of leadership, during their four-day third session that concluded on July 7.

They agreed in principle on the operation regulations of the Party Central Committee, the Politburo, the Secretariat, and the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission from the 12th tenure.

Compared to the previous tenure, the operation regulations of the 12th Party Central Committee, the Politburo and the Secretariat have been amended and supplemented with important new contents regarding the obligations and rights of the Politburo in giving orientations, goals and major solutions for socio-economic development.

Meanwhile, the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission will get more responsibilities and rights in examining and supervising the stocktaking of assets owned by officials under the management of the Politburo and the Secretariat.

The committee members also reached consensus on the introduction of personnel for senior positions at State agencies of the 2016-2021 tenure.

They decided to continue introducing to the new National Assembly the positions of State President, Prime Minister, National Assembly Chairman and other leadership seats that were introduced by voting or approved during the previous session in March this year.

They also proposed nominees for the titles that they did not work on in the previous session or might be changed, so that the Politburo can officially propose them to the new National Assembly for consideration, election and approval.

Addressing the session, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong emphasised that the committee should fulfil its duty and rights over major and important issues of the country, Party and State, including deciding key strategies and policies on socio-economy and State budget in the next five year and for each individual year, together with national defence, security, foreign relations, Party building and personnel work.

In order to reach set targets in the second half of this year and for the whole year, the Party leader called for stronger efforts to seek measures to deal with urgent problems, and focus resources for socio-economic development.

He also urged for effective implementation of strategic breakthrough measures and speed up the restructuring of State-owned enterprises and the State budget, while settling bad debts and ensuring a safe level of public debt.

The Party leader also asked for stronger efforts in building the Party, combating corruption and resolutely safeguarding national independence and sovereignty and territorial integrity, ensuring a peaceful and stable environment for national growth as well as active international integration.

Besides, it is necessary to focus on ideology, communication and media work, thus creating consensus in the community and deal with wrongful arguments, he asked.-VNA
