PM Pham Minh Chinh has bigger chance to become party chief

Thủ tướng đương nhiệm Phạm Minh Chính

An inside source said:

It cannot be ruled out that incumbent Secretary General Nguyen Phu Trong of the ruling Communist Party of Vietnam will not be able to complete his third term, even until the 10th Plenum of the party’s Central Committee scheduled in early October.

At that time, it is possible that incumbent Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh will be chosen and supported by China to succeed Trong instead of State President To Lam, because China has been supporting the government leader since he was Secretary of Quang Ninh province. No matter how high or low this possibility is, it remains to be seen whether China will invite Lam to officially visit as State President in the near future?

The source added:

Vietnam’s political situation is very unstable, now it’s leadership consists of equal officials, no one is willing to obey other so governance of the country is quite chaotic and ineffective. Leaders of provinces and cities across the country do not dare to sign new projects for fear of being punished at any time, even after retirement, leading to a serious economic recession.

The chaos at the top political level also caused large foreign corporations to withdraw capital from Vietnam or temporarily stop further investment in the country.

The main reason is because after Vietnam and the US upgraded to comprehensive strategic partners, China was very bitter and gave To Lam the green light to cut down all the technocratic, young, qualified and senior leaders. more pro-Western like Vo Van Thuong and Vuong Dinh Hue. China just wants Vietnam to always depend on China and live on, not develop, to serve as a buffer zone for them like North Korea.
