The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission decided to give a strong warning to Huynh Duc Tho, Vice Secretary of the Da Nang Party Committee and Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee at its 18th session in Hanoi on September 29.
Tho, who is also Secretary of the Party delegation to the municipal People’s Committee, was disciplined for holding responsibility for violations committed by the municipal Party Committee’s Standing Board for the 2015-2020 tenure and those in land and urban management.
At the session, chaired by Politburo member Tran Quoc Vuong, Secretary of the Party Central Committee and head of the commission, officials also looked into taking disciplinary actions against the Standing Board of the Da Nang municipal Party Committee for the 2015-2020 tenure and Nguyen Xuan Anh, member of the Party Central Committee, Secretary of the municipal Party Committee and Chairman of the municipal People’s Council.
In its report released earlier, the Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission said Nguyen Xuan Anh has been found to “hold the main responsibility” for multiple violations by the municipal Party Committee’s Standing Board during the 2015-2020 tenure.
He violated “the principle of democratic centralism” and Party and State regulations on personnel work by making arbitrary appointments to city government positions.
His actions caused division and affected the solidarity and unity in the Standing Board of the Party Committee.
Anh’s use of inappropriate certifications and dishonesty in declaration also violated the code of ethics for Party members, according to the report.
The Party Central Committee’s Inspection Commission also condemned him for “not being conscious of setting an example” when receiving two cars and two houses as “gifts” from private enterprises, creating public outrage.
At the session, the commission said that these violations are serious, hurting the prestige of the municipal Party Organisation and authorities and causing concern among officials, Party members and people.
It asked the Politburo and the Party Central Committee to consider disciplining the Standing Board of the Da Nang municipal Party Committee for the 2015-2020 tenure and Nguyen Xuan Anh within their jurisdiction.
