A separate source informed Thoibao.de that Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc had submitted his resignation. If this is accurate news, it can be said that at the beginning of 2023, the Vietnamese political scene had an unprecedented shocking news.
Phuc’s resignation was submitted on January 13, 2023, during a meeting of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV)’s Secretariat at the headquarters of the party’s Central Committee, the source said.
This meeting, chaired by CPV’s General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, reviewed and disciplined many officials and some former officials such as: former Minister cum Head of the Government Office Mai Tien Dung; Vice Chairman of Hanoi People’s Committee Chu Xuan Dung; Director of Bac Kan province’s Department of Education and Training Ma The Quyen; former Chairman of the People’s Council of Tri Ton district in An Giang province Men Pholly; Vice Chairman of the Provincial People’s Committee, former Secretary of the Party Committee Nguyen Van Phong who is former Director of the Department of Finance of Binh Thuan province. State and international media have covered this information.
But these are just the “low-ranking target” that Nguyen Phu Trong wants to discipline as easily as turning his hand. The real big fish he wants to catch is Politburo member and State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
In Viet A case, so far the highest ranking official being punished Deputy Prime Minister. With absolute power, it is possible that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong has put pressure on the Politburo, forcing the Politburo member involved in Viet A to resign.
Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc remained unharmed at the 6th Central Conference in early October 2022. But he held the Prime Minister post and then the State President, and let his wife participate in the game of sucking the blood of the people for profit, which is unacceptable. People were miserable, but they were also snatched for their wallets, then pushed people closer to death due to the disease. Taking advantage of the entire people in such a situation is a crime.
The Four Pillars are too dominant today.
For many months, Thoibao.de has always focused on the evidence of Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu, wife of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc. People imported Viet A’s test kit from China, of unknown origin, very dangerous. People who are not sick are tested for illness and are sent to “concentration camps” to live with sick people. This makes many people who are not sick also become infected. Meanwhile, people who have the disease and test it to be free of the disease become the source of the epidemic. This crime cannot be tolerated. If Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong ignores it, then it is complicity in the crime.
The evidence of Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu is now complete and in the hands of Mr. To Lam. Of course, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong has also heard the report and seen it. However, many months have passed but Mr. Trong still does nothing to the President, so how can it be fair to other members of his Party?
From any angle, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc also needs to resign. Being involved in Viet A is a crime, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc cannot sit in the chair of the country’s leadership and let his wife abuse it. In terms of internal fighting, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc needs to leave his chair for others to have a chance to jump in. In which, Mr. To Lam and Mr. Vo Van Thuong are the two people who are targeting his post.
The political game in Vietnam needs a strong dose of medicine. Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong every time he returns from China, his political power increases and he can make shocking cases. At the 11th Party Central Committee, the fact that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong was able to oust Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung at the end of his term was widely believed to be largely due to Mr. Trong taking his strength from outside.
At the beginning of November, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong quickly wrapped his towel and shirt to go to meet Xi Jinping as soon as possible. After returning home, Mr. Trong directly knocked down Pham Binh Minh and Vu Duc Dam. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Pham Binh Minh was a member of the Politburo but Trong successfully dismissed him so he would take over on Phuc.
If the information about Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s resignation is true, then it can be said that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong is sending a strong message to other forces, especially the force Pham Minh Chinh-Nguyen Tan Dung which wants to emerge as the strongest force in the coming years.
