Nguyen Phu Trong, Party General Secretary in the 11th tenure, is among the 180 official members.
Officials, Party members and people nationwide expressed their trust in the newly elected members of the 12th Party Central Committee.
Vu Ngoc Hoang, permanent deputy head of the Party Central Committee's Commission for Popularization and Education, said the outcome of the Party Central Committee election reflected democracy, consensus and renewal in Party activities.
The nomination of officials outside the candidate list was an improved democratic step, he said, adding that nearly all cities and provinces had officials elected to the Committee.
He believed that the new leadership would steer the country across sectors comprehensively toward firmly safeguarding national sovereignty and maintaining an environment of peace in service of development.
Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Cao Duc Phat hailed personnel preparations for the election as thorough and democratic, saying that it reflected the delegates' sense of responsibility to the Party, country and people.
Trieu Dinh Le, permanent Vice Secretary of the Cao Bang province’s Party Committee, said the number of Party Central Committee members was rational and ensured the Party's comprehensive leadership in almost all aspects of social life.
Lo Doan Kieu, 72, a retiree in Nguyen Trai ward in the northern city of Ha Giang, said he believed the newly elected officials would have both the talent and moral virtue to lead the country forward.
He said he hoped that more positive and radical changes would be made in education, particularly in mountainous provinces where there was still a lack of schools and learning tools.
Nguyen Van Vang, chairman of the Xin Cai commune’s People's Committee, said he wished more attention would be paid to personnel training in remote and mountainous areas.
Meanwhile, Ly Thi Sinh from Tuc Duyen ward in Thai Nguyen province hailed the ongoing national target program on building a new countryside and suggested the Party and State take more drastic actions to better link farmers, the State, scientists and businesses together.- (VNS/VLLF)
