The members have voted to go forward with the nomination of a yet-to-be-disclosed name to hold the State Presidency position in the 2021-26 tenure.
Võ Thị Ánh Xuân, a 53-year-old from the southern province of An Giang, is currently the Acting President of Việt Nam.
The predecessor, 69-year-old Nguyen Xuan Phuc, resigned from the Party and the State Presidency in January with approval from the Party Central Committee.
The new Presidential candidate endorsed by the Party Central Committee will need to be confirmed by the National Assembly.
Additionally in this meeting, the Party Central Committee members also voted to elect three new members to the 13th-tenure Central Inspection Committee, which is the anti-corruption body of the Party.
The members are Nguyen Manh Hung; Dinh Huu Thanh, member of the Standing Committee of the Quang Binh Province's Party Committee, and Chairman of the province's inspection committee; member Le Van Thanh, member of the Standing Committee of Can Tho City's Party Committee and Chairman of the Inspection Committee of Can Tho City's Party Committee.- (VNS/VLLF)
