The move came just one week after the Politburo, the country’s supreme decision-making body, approved Mr. Anh to the position of Deputy Secretary of Hanoi’s Party Committee.
At the gathering today, deputies of the Hanoi People’s Council agreed to relieve Mr. Nguyen Duc Chung from the city government’s chairman position who has been suspended from all duties and under police custody due to his involvement in some criminal cases since August 28.
Hanoi’s newly-appointed mayor said this is a major honor but also a huge responsibility, and affirmed his commitment to serving the people and listening to the public to ensure efficiency in the city’s governance.
Born in Ba Vi district of Hanoi, Mr. Anh, 55, holds a PhD degree and assumed various important positions in the Party and the government.
Starting off as a lecturer of the Institute for Technical Physics under the Hanoi University of Science and Technology in 1988, Mr. Anh took over his first major political position as Deputy Minister of Science and Technology in August 2010.
In March 2013, he was designated Deputy Secretary of the Phu Tho Provincial Party committee and two months later appointed Chairman of the Phu Tho Provincial People’s Committee.
He returned to the position of Deputy Minister of Science and Technology in September 2015 and was promoted to Minister of Science and Technology from April 2016.
The Vietnamese National Assembly is expected to release Mr. Anh from the minister position in the upcoming sitting next month.
