Members of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) have voted to revoke the National Assembly deputy post of Dang Thi Hoang Yen for supplying false personal information.
The proposal, made at a conference held by the VFF yesterday, will be sent to the National Assembly Standing Committee for consideration before submittal to the National Assembly.
At the conference, attended by Politburo member and Deputy Chairperson of the National Assembly Tong Thi Phong, VFF members discussed Yen's actions in violating the law.
According to the National Assembly website, she was born in 1959 and graduated from the HCM City University of Economics.
She is currently a member of the National Assembly's Committee on Culture, Education and Youth as well as Management Board Chairwoman of Tan Duc Investment JSC and Tan Tao University.
Yen was introduced as a potential NA deputy by southern Long An Province's Fatherland Front.
At an earlier meeting, Long An Fatherland Front delegates voted for removing her from her NA post.
She reportedly failed to mention being a Party member and that she was married to Jimmy Tran, who is wanted by local police.
According to Article 56 of the Law on the Organisation of the National Assembly, deputies who are no longer worthy of the people's trust will be removed from office.
The National Assembly Standing Committee will decide on bringing the case of removal from office of National Assembly deputies before the National Assembly or voters in localities where such deputies were elected at the proposal of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front Central Committee, the provincial/municipal Fatherland Front Committee or voters in localities where such deputies were elected.
In cases where the National Assembly removes deputies from office, such action must be approved by at least two-thirds of the total number of deputies.
