Hanoi (VNA) – The Party Central Committee (PCC) elected two additional members to the PCC Secretariat on October 6, the third working day of the PCC’s sixth plenary meeting in Hanoi.

The new PCC Secretariat members are Pham Dinh Trac, head of the PCC’s Commission for Internal Affairs and Vice Chairman of the Central Steering Committee for Anti-Corruption, and Nguyen Xuan Thang, Director of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics and Vice Chairman of the Central Theoretical Council.

The Party Central Committee also discussed the Politburo’s proposal on disciplinary measures on Nguyen Xuan Anh, PCC member and Secretary of the Party Committee of the central city of Da Nang.

The Party Central Committee agreed that as the leader of the city’s Party Committee, Nguyen Xuan Anh bears the main responsibility for violations and mistakes of the municipal Party Committee’s Standing Board.

Anh himself broke organizational and operation rules on the Party, violated the regulations on things Party members are not allowed to do, and the rule on Party members’ responsibility in setting good example. He also failed to meet criteria for a member of Party Committee.

Anh’s wrongdoings and mistakes are serious, putting negative impacts on the prestige of the Party organization and himself, and causing discontent among Party members and people, the Party Central Committee concluded.

The Party Central Committee decided to dismiss Anh from the positions of Secretary of the Da Nang municipal Party Committee, member of the municipal Party’s Standing Board and the municipal Party Committee for the 2015-2020 tenure. He was also removed from the 12th Party Central Committee.

In the afternoon, the Party Central Committee discussed the projects on improving public health protection and care and on population affairs.-VNA
