First, they must have firm political capacity, persistent in their viewpoint of Marxism-Leninism, Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts, the working class, the objectives and ideals of national independence and socialism, renovation policies of the Party, and interest of the nation.

Second, they must be flexible, creative, and have ability, intelligence, innovative thought; be able to carry out Party policies in assigned fields; be decisive in practical actions; dare to face difficulties and challenges; be able to form a staff, implement regulations of centralization and democracy.

Thirdly, the Central Executive Committee’s members must be good in terms of moral, be honest and devoted to their jobs, be a good example in the life and in the fight against corruption. They are not involved in corruption and are determined to fight corruption, must not let their families make use of their authority to benefit themselves, and must have prestige within the Party and in the people.

Mr. Hoan stressed that these standards must be met. He said it is a must not to recommend candidates who are for factionalism, have been responsible for wrongdoings and corruption, get rich fast, have a lot of houses and land with power abuse. There are no delegates who have conservative views, work ineffectively, nor undisciplined delegates. They are also not delegates who have some political problems not yet checked out by the investigative agencies.

Meanwhile, members of the Politburo and the Secretariat must be the outstanding members of the Central Executive Committee, with preference being the members of the ninth-tenure Central Executive Committee who fulfilled their tasks properly. Their heath conditions must ensure their working in the Politburo and the Secretariat.
