It is a challenging task, but if successful, it will positively impact on municipal officials’ attitude and sense of responsibility, Committee Secretary Pham Quang Nghi told the conference which opened on January 8.
Apart from members of the Standing Board, leaders of seven “sensitive” municipal departments, including construction, natural resources and environment, planning and architecture, planning and investment, home affairs, labour, invalids and social affairs, and police, will be subject to the vote.
Those who are voted and all members of the municipal Party Committee will be informed of the results. The results of subsequent annual votes will be given to the media after the city receives instructions from the Party Central Committee to do so.
Hanoi will be the first locality in the country to pilot such a vote of confidence. The Party municipal Committee has announced eight key tasks that focus on nine working programmes, renovating and reorganising the Committee, and implementing Party Central Committee instructions and resolutions.
