Army Corps 1 builds a typically pure, strong Party Organisation

Building typically pure, strong party organisations plays a decisive role in enabling offices and units to keep raising their synergy and combat strength and successfully fulfil all assigned missions. This work is of paramount importance to Army Corps 1 as a strategic mobile main unit of the Ministry of National Defence and requires great political determination and drastic, synchronous measures.

Over the years, Army Corps 1’s Party Committee and Command have synchronously implemented proper measures and approaches to build a pure, strong Party Organisation. Grass-roots level party organisations have adhered to their political tasks to formulate appropriate, highly feasible guidelines and measures, while strictly maintaining the Party’s operation and leadership principles. At the same time, they have paid due regard to educating their cadres and party members on morality, lifestyle, political zeal, and self-motivation. They have promoted the vanguard, exemplary role of cadres, party members, and heads of offices and units. They have also combined the building of a contingent of cadres and leaders with the consolidation of party committees. Personnel work has been carried out in a procedural, democratic, objective manner. Relationships within offices and units have been harmoniously managed, while unity and consensus have been brought into play. Besides, inspection, supervision, and management of party members have been conducted closely, seriously. On a yearly basis, more than 93% of party members successfully or excellently fulfil their tasks; 94% of grass-roots level party organisations and 90% of party cells successfully or excellently fulfil their missions. During the 2015-2020 tenure, the Corps Party Organisation exceeded its targets of initiating new members into the Party. Those figures have contributed to building a comprehensively strong Corps, improving the Corps’ synergy and combat power, and enabling the Corps to readily undertake and successfully fulfil all assigned missions.

However, in several party organisations, their capacity to grasp and concretise higher echelons’ directives and resolutions into their own resolutions has been still limited. The implementation of measures to overcome weaknesses has not been comprehensive. The effectiveness of inspection and supervision work has yet to be high.

Currently, more task requirements are being imposed on the Military build-up and the Homeland protection. The building of a compact, strong Army impacts on cadres and party members’ thought and sentiment. Grasping higher echelons’ resolutions and directives on the Party building and rectification, Army Corps 1’s Party Committee and Command decide to continue synchronously, comprehensively implementing measures to build a typically pure, strong Party Organisation capable of leading the Corps to successfully fulfil all assigned missions, with a focus on several main measures as follows.

First, build a politically, ideologically, morally strong Party Organisation. Implementing this measure will provide a solid foundation for well performing all missions. To that end, all-level party committees and organisations should raise the effectiveness of political and ideological education to make cadres and party members remain steadfastness in Marxism-Leninism, Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, and the Party’s goal and ideal against hostile forces’ plots and artifices. At the same time, due attention should be paid to educating cadres and party members on revolutionary morality, organising political activities relating to the Party building within the Corps Party Organisation, grasping and effectively executing the 13th Party Central Committee’s Conclusion 21-KL/TW, dated October 25th, 2021 on building and rectifying the Party and the political system, resolutely preventing, pushing back, and strictly handling the degradation in political ideology, ethics, and lifestyle and the signs of “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” amongst cadres and party members, the Central Military Commission’s Resolution 847-NQ/QUTW, dated December 28th, 2021 on bringing into play the virtues of “Uncle Ho’s soldiers” and resolutely fighting against individualism in the new situation, stepping up the study and following of Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, ethics, and lifestyle, and implementing the Campaign titled “promoting tradition, devoting talent, deserving to be Uncle Ho’s soldiers” in the new period. All-level party organisations should encourage the exemplary role, “self-examination,” and “self-correction” amongst cadres and party members, particularly leaders of offices and units. All cadres and party members will be required to write commitments to improving their political ideology, morality, and lifestyle. Those commitments will be reviewed to draw lessons and work towards remedial measures on a monthly, quarterly, yearly basis.

Second, continue building organisationally strong party committees and organisations and developing a contingent of cadres with proper quantity and high quality. To that end, the Corps Party Committee will direct all-level party committees and organisations to grasp and strictly implement resolutions and directives by the Party Central Committee and the Central Military Commission on the Party building, review, supplement, and synchronously execute their work and leadership regulations. In the process, it is necessary to stringently abide by the Party’s principles of democratic centralism, collective leadership, individual accountability, self-criticism, and criticism. Consideration should be given to implementing the Central Military Commission Standing Board’s Conclusion 111-KL/QUTW, dated February 12th, 2019 on continuing raising grass-roots level party organisations’ leadership capacity and combativeness and the quality of cadres and party members across the Military in the new period. Besides, it is essential to frequently consolidate party committees and organisations in accordance with adjustments in the Corps’ organisational structure and align the building of typically pure, strong party organisations with the building of “exemplarily, typically” comprehensively strong offices and units. At the same time, great value should be attached to well performing the work of internal political protection, initiating new members into the Party, and correctly evaluating the task performance of party organisations, party members, and cadres on a yearly basis.

In addition, the Corps’ Party Committee and Command will focus on building a pool of cadres, particularly at campaign level with political zeal, absolute loyalty to the Party, the Homeland, and the people, pure morality, comprehensive knowledge, great prestige, good health, and proper age range. To do so, significance should be attached to closely combining the training of cadres with personnel planning and use. In the process, all-level party committees and organisations must strictly implement the 12th Politburo’s Regulation 205-QĐ/TW, dated September 23rd, 2019 on “controlling power in personnel work and fighting against illegal lobbying for position and power” and the Corps Party Committee’s Resolution 553-NQ/ĐU on building a contingent of cadres within the Corps to meet their task requirements in the new situation, while carrying out personnel work in a procedural, democratic, objective fashion to achieve a consensus within offices and units.

Third, actively renew and improve the development and implementation of resolutions, and intensify measures to manage party members. The Corps’ Party Committee and Command will require all-level party committees and organisations to grasp higher echelons’ directives and resolutions and their units’ political tasks, carefully prepare draft resolutions, ensure comprehensive but focalised leadership, concentrate on dealing with shortcomings and new issues, and opportunely formulate breakthrough guidelines and measures for each period and mission. Resolutions must be short, easy to remember, and feasible. Grounded on relevant regulations, all-level party committees and organisations should raise the quality of party meetings and promote democracy and collective knowledge during discussions to determine guidelines and measures of leadership. The implementation of resolutions represents an important step; therefore, all-level party committees and commands should well conduct the work of dissemination and propagation, develop plans, effectively handle arising issues and shortcomings, and carry out reviews to draw lessons. All activities of party committees must be organised under the Party’s principles and their authority. It is essential to promote democracy, submit to higher echelons’ leadership, and heighten discipline simultaneously. Moreover, it is vital to closely manage cadres and party members’ political ideology, social relationships, morality, and lifestyle.

Fourth, improve the quality and effectiveness of inspection and supervision work. This is an indispensable step in party organisations’ leadership process. Hence, the Corps Party Committee will regularly direct all-level party committees and organisations to be fully aware that “supervision must be expanded, while inspection must be focalised” and concentrate on inspecting and supervising party organisations and members’ compliance with the Party’s Charter and higher echelons’ resolutions and directives. Due attention should be paid to consolidating all-level inspection commissions both qualitatively and quantitatively. In addition to plans of inspection and supervision, it is necessary to inspect and supervise party organisations and members with signs of offence or poor task performance, proactively detect and strictly handle offences committed by party organisations and members, and opportunely, completely settle complaints and denunciations. At the same time, importance should be attached to promoting mass organisations’ supervision of cadres and party members and encouraging organisations and individuals to detect and combat negative practices, corruption, and wastefulness in order to make contributions to enhancing party organisations and members’ leadership capacity and combativeness. After inspections, collectives and individuals must develop specific plans and measures to overcome their weaknesses. Doing so will help build pure, strong party organisations at all levels.

In the upcoming time, promoting the tradition of “lightning speed – determination to win” and implementing those above-mentioned measures, all staff members of Army Corps 1 will strive to surmount difficulties and creatively perform their tasks so as to contribute to building a typically pure, strong Party Organisation and a “compact, strong” Corps.
