Nguyen Van Nen elected as secretary of Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee

The chief of a central office under the Communist Party of Vietnam was elected as secretary of the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee on Saturday.

Nguyen Van Nen, chief of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee Office, will head the municipal Party Committee in 2020-25, according to information announced at a press meeting late the same day.

Nen was elected by delegates at the 11th Congress of the Ho Chi Minh City Party organization, with 100 percent approval. This election makes him the city's top official.

The five-yearly congress is slated to last from Wednesday to Sunday.

Nen was a police officer in Tay Ninh Province, about 90km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City, from 1975 to 1985.

He ascended the ranks in the police force and administrative apparatus in Tay Ninh from 1985 to 2006, when he was voted as chairman of the Tay Ninh People’s Committee.

The official was named Party secretary of the province in September 2010 and took the post until July 2011.

He became Minister-Chairman of the Government Office in November 2013.

Nen was appointed as chief of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee Office in February 2016.

He has four deputies in the Ho Chi Minh City Party Committee now, including Tran Luu Quang, Nguyen Thi Le, Nguyen Thanh Phong – who is chairman of the municipal People’s Committee – and Nguyen Ho Hai.
