After two officials who had worked for Nguyen Xuan Phuc when he was prime minister were fired, there was significant anticipation that he might resign.

Vietnam’s HANOI According to the country’s official news agency, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, the president of Vietnam, has submitted his resignation after the Communist Party in power judged him accountable for the misbehaviour of countless officials who worked for him.

The largely ceremonial job has been held by Phuc, a 68-year-old former prime minister, for less than two years. It wasn’t immediately obvious who would take his place.

According to the Vietnam News Agency, which cited the party’s influential Central Committee, “Fully cognizant of his obligations before the party and people, he submitted an application to resign from his appointed positions, quit his work, and retire.”

Following the January dismissals of two deputy prime ministers who were serving under Phuc when he led the government, there was much talk regarding Phuc’s resignation.

The National Assembly must approve Phuc’s resignation for it to take effect. The legislature would host a rare extraordinary meeting this week, according to Reuters’ report on Monday.
