NA approves dismissal of two Deputy PMs
95.97 per cent of deputies agree with the dismissal of Pham Binh Minh and Vu Duc Dam from the post of Deputy Prime Minister.
The National Assembly approved the dismissal of Deputy Prime Ministers Pham Binh Minh and Vu Duc Dam at the Prime Minister’s request during its second extra-ordinary meeting held in Hanoi on January 5.
Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh said the request was made based on the personal aspirations of Minh and Dam.
In a vote, 476 deputies, or 95.97 per cent, agreed with the dismissal of Minh and Dam.
They will retire in line with current regulations.
An extra-ordinary session of the Communist Party Central Committee last week voted for Standing Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh to no longer be a member of the Politburo and member of the 13th Central Party Committee; and for Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam to no longer be a member of the 13th Central Party Committee.
