The Leadership Role of the CPV over the VPA and the National Defence

(Bqp.vn) - The CPV puts forth the guideline and makes decisions on the issues relating to the Homeland defence strategy. Through Party organizations, it maintains the leadership of the entire political system in defence activities.

The CPV exercises the absolute, direct and all-round leadership over the VPA in order to make the VPA strong politically, ideologically and organizationally. The Party’s leadership over the VPA is achieved through the system of Party organizations, the chain of command, the system of political organizations, political cadres at all levels, and public mass organizations at grassroots level.

The system of Party organizations in the VPA comprises the Central Military Party Committee (CMPC in short) and Military Party Organizations at all levels. The General Secretary of the CPV Central Committee is the Chairman of the CMPC. The CMPC also includes Vice Chairman and members appointed by the Politburo, including some members of the CPV Central Committee within the army and some others outside the army. Party executive committees from those at the level directly reporting to CMPC to the grassroots level are elected by their corresponding party congresses.

CMPC proposes to the CPV Central Committee the issues of military and national defence guidelines and missions, the national defence plan, directions and measures of building the all-people national defence, Party’s leadership mechanisms over the VPA. It is CMPC’s responsibility to coordinate and instruct its immediate subordinate executive committees in the implementation of the Party’s resolutions and directives concerning the military and national defence. CMPC exercises direct leadership in the building of the comprehensively powerful VPA, and the building of pure and sound Party organizations in the army. By improving the quality and efficiency of Party and political work, the CMPC ensures firm and increased Party’s leadership over the army. The CMPC performs the collective decision-making on major issues such as policies, programmes, plans of action for the implementation of the Party’s directives and resolutions, measures for building the VPA, and decisions on the VPA personnel issues. The CMPC directs the General Political Department and through the General Political Department, it directs Party organizations and the system of commissars and political organizations at all levels in conducting the Party and political work in order to make the VPA strong politically, ideologically and organizationally to accomplish all of its missions.

The system of political organizations in the VPA comprises the General Political Department and political organizations in the units of all levels. The General Political Department directs the Party and political work within the VPA, operating under the leadership of the Politburo and the CPV Central Secretariat, particularly under the direct and constant leadership of the CMPC. Based on the resolutions, and the directives of the Party Congresses, Party Central Committee, Politburo, Party Secretariat and the resolutions of the CMPC; and the orders of the Minister of National Defence, the General Political Department proposes to the CMPC the guidelines, measures and action plans for the Party and political work in the army; directs, instructs and inspects the performance of that work at all levels. The VPA political organizations carry out the cultivation of and education on the CPV guidelines, advocacies and policies, the State laws; direct and instruct the building of pure and sound Party organizations and cells; instruct military units to carry out anti-psychological warfare measures; coordinate with local Party executive committees, authorities and public mass organizations in disseminating and mobilizing people to fulfil their duties of defending the Homeland.

The commissars and junior commissars preside over political work at all levels. Units at the levels from company to battalion have junior commissars. From the level of regiment to military region and the equivalent there are commissars. The commissars and junior commissars are responsible to their superiors and the Party executive committees for the entire Party and political work within their units, for directly guiding, instructing, inspecting, organizing and executing the Party and political work as regulated; while concurrently taking part in designing and organizing the performance of the unit’s plans.
