Hanoi (VNA) – Setting a good example is considered a regular activity of officials and Party members.

Regulation No. 08-QDi/TW was issued recently, detailing members of the Politburo, the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat and Party Central Committee’s responsibility for setting a good example.

The regulation underscores that efficiency in performing tasks and missions is a requirement of every official and Party member regardless of their position.

The document once again highlights President Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts and standpoints on Party building and official training.

President Ho Chi Minh often underlined the responsibility for setting good examples as well as the pioneering role of officials and Party members, which is manifested through the “most determined, most ardent, purest, and most enthusiastic attitude to serve the nation and people.”

Staying persistent to the late leader’s thoughts in Party building, over the past decades, the Party has focused on promoting the vanguard role of officials and Party members, especially in fulfilling their assigned jobs and tasks.

The setting of a good example is reflected in the working style of strictly abiding by rules, the thorough understanding and implementation of their responsibilities, tasks, and authority, and not abusing their position and power during performing their jobs.

The regulation underlines the need to “actively realise rules on decentralisation and closely control power; uphold principles, democracy and sense of justice and stay objective, opening and transparent in personnel affairs.”

Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong has reminded officials and Party members to perform their responsibilities and assigned tasks properly.

Over the past two years, the majority of 56 central officials receiving disciplinary measures from the Party and legal punishment violated Party regulations and Party Charter as well as the law and did not fulfil their assigned responsibilities and tasks and their duties to the Party and people.

For officials, especially management, leadership and senior Party officials, the criteria for a good example is not only completing their jobs but also in their capacity of uniting, gathering, motivating and promoting collective brainpower, and enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness in leadership and management and work performance.

Amid rapid and complicated developments in the world situation, the requirements of Party building and personnel development have become more significant and urgent than ever before.-VNA
