NDO – Nguyen Xuan Anh, former Secretary of the Da Nang Party Committee, has been dismissed from his post as Chairman of the municipal People's Council for the 2016-2021 tenure.
The decision was made by the 9th Da Nang People's Council during its unusual meeting on November 24, under the chairmanship of Deputy Chairman Nguyen Nho Trung, to discuss the proposed removal of Nguyen Xuan Anh as the Chairman and member of the council.

Previously, on October 6, the Party Central Committee had issued a decision disciplining Nguyen Xuan Anh, a member of the Central Party Committee and Secretary of the Da Nang Party Committee, in the form of dismissing him from his position as a member of the 12th Party Central Committee. Anh was also dismissed as Secretary of Da Nang Party Committee, as well as his membership of the municipal Party Committee and its Standing Board for the 2015-2020 term.
On November 14, Anh also requested to be absent due to personal reasons and did not participate in the meeting between the municipal People's Council and local voters. Deputy Chairman Nguyen Nho Trung presided over the event.
Born in 1976, Nguyen Xuan Anh, a native of Hoa Tien commune, Hoa Vang district, Da Nang city, was an alternate member of the 11th Central Party Committee, member of the 12th Central Party Committee and Secretary of Da Nang municipal Party Committee. On June 16, 2016, he was elected as Chairman of the municipal People’s Council for the 2016-2021 period.
However, the council’s extraordinary meeting this morning did not discuss a replacement for the role of chairman. In the meantime, Deputy Chairman Trung will temporarily oversee the municipal People's Council operations and prepare for the year-end meeting, scheduled to open on December 5.
