Vietnam’s President Vo Van Thuong has resigned after just one year in the job, as the communist country mounts a sweeping anti-graft purge.
According to the announcement by the state media on Wednesday, Thuong was guilty of “violations and shortcomings which did not mirror the exemplary trait he was suppose to deliver as a head of state,hence his resignation, which was accepted by the party’s central committee.
This is coming as Vietnam undergoes major political turbulence , with some of Thuong’s predecessors also forced out in an anti-corruption drive that has seen several ministers fired and top business leaders tried for fraud.
Meanwhile fully aware of his responsibility to the Party, State and People, Vo Van Thuong became president on March 2 last year after president Nguyen Xuan Phuc ,submitted his resignation from his assigned positions.
