It is said that Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu, the wife of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, is the “biggest boss” of Viet A scandal. As much as 80% of Viet A company’s shares belong to anonymous shareholders, the person holding these large shares must have great power, so the press does not dare to name.
The Viet A case has brought in two former ministers and many deputy ministers in addition of a numerous provincial CDC directors. This case also brought down a Deputy Prime Minister, but the name of Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu has not been mentioned.
In fact, Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu has no political power. She is considered the “biggest boss” of Viet A because she is the wife of the President. Her husband’s cloak gave her great authority and strength. It is also because of the name of the wife of the President, that the juniors that follow her are so numerous. They joined because they thought his power would keep them safe. However, they were wrong.
The fact that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong used the Politburo to force Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc to resign showed that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong did not tolerate Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu. In order to hold Ms. Thu accountable before the law, she must be removed as “first lady” first. But to remove the title of First Lady, it is not possible to force her to divorce her husband, only to remove her husband from the state president position.
So, the question is the removal of Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc a step to clear the way to probe Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu? Or simply deposed, so that Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc is no longer an umbrella for his wife to do wrong?
In fact, the information provided from the inside is also quite limited, thoibao.de tries to find the best source to provide readers. However, there are secret agreements that no one knows, other than the parties involved. With experience in analyzing the political situation in Vietnam, we will make some assumptions that we think are most likely to happen.
There are two possible possibilities, firstly, after Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc loses political power, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong will let To Lam probe Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu. Because if she is no longer the first lady, Ms. Thu’s position and power is much weaker than that of Nguyen Thanh Long and Chu Ngoc Anh.
The second possibility is a political agreement. Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc agreed to withdraw to keep his wife safe from the law.
The form of oral agreement before a big political game has also been applied by Mr. Nguyen Tan Dung when he left the political scene. That is the Chair of the National Assembly for Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan and a member of the Politburo and the Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee for Dinh La Thang.
It is also necessary to say more about the person of Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong. He once agreed to let Dinh La Thang join the Politburo, but it was just a move to let Nguyen Tan Dung retire. When Nguyen Tan Dung has no power, Nguyen Phu Trong immediately sought to depose and imprison Dinh La Thang.
Legally, imprisoning Dinh La Thang is not unjust. But in the political game, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong “turned the bet” when he took down Dinh La Thang. As for Mrs. Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, the part is a woman, the part she left behind is no scandal, so Mr. Trong let her remain as the chairwoman of the National Assembly.
The story of Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong “flipping” on the political chessboard is not new. Mr. Dinh The Huynh used to be a seed selected by Mr. Trong, but he was also removed from the permanent seat of the Secretariat in the middle of the term, for a very mysterious reason.
Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong is a professional politician who is more thoughtful and unpredictable than others. Therefore, if Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc has an agreement to withdraw for the safety of his wife, his wife may not be safe. It’s a political game, they never keep their promises.
