Politics and government of

The politics of Vietnam takes place in a framework of a single-party socialist republic. The central role of the Communist Party of Vietnam is reaffirmed in the current constitution, adopted in April 1992. Though Vietnam remains a single-party state, adherence to ideological orthodoxy has become less important than economic development as a national priority.

All Vietnamese political organizations are under Vietnamese Communist Party control. There is no separation of powers between executive, legislative and judicial branches. Communist Party policy is set by a fourteen-member Politburo. The top four positions in the Politburo are held by Party General Secretary Nông Đức Mạnh, General Minister of Public Security Lê Hồng Anh, State President Nguyễn Minh Triết, and Prime Minister Nguyễn Tấn Dũng.[1] The members of the Politburo were selected by the party's 160-member central committee in April 2006. The Party Secretariat, which consists of eight Politburo members, oversees day-to-day policy implementation.
