Carlyle A. Thayer: “Vietnam: Expanded Powers for the President-Secretary General”

[ndlr] L’analyse du chercheur australien Carlyle Thayer sur le rôle de Président de la RSVN cumulé avec celui de Secrétaire général du PCV. Document édité par Thayer Consultancy, 4 octobre 2018.

Vietnam is a one-party state led by the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV). The most senior members of the Politburo hold the four top party-state leadership posts: Secretary General of the CPV, State President, Prime Minister and Chair of the National Assembly Standing Committee. Ministers and their equivalent rank in Cabinet are invariably members of the CPV Central Committee. Every ministry and government agency, the people’s armed forces, and mass organisation has an internal party committee.


The decision by the eighth executive session, or plenum, of the CPV Central Committee to nominate Nguyen Phu Trong to simultaneously hold the posts of party Secretary General and State President will weaken if not erode the informal system of checks and balances that has been in place since the adoption of the 1992 Constitution of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
