VGP – The National Assembly officially issued Resolution 97/NQ-QH14 on pilot new urban administrative modal in Ha Noi which will not have the People’s Council at ward level.
Accordingly, the new administration model will abolish the People’s Council in 177 wards of 12 districts and Son Tay town for the tenure 2016 – 2021.
The pilot modal will be implemented from July 1, 2021 until it is terminiated by the NA.
The metropolitan area will have only two levels of administration: city and district. Wards under districts are ruled by the People's Committees and without People’s Council. Rural areas still retain the model of three levels of administration (city, district, andcommune).
Wards in Ha Noi will not have the People's Councils but the People’s Committees consisting of a chairman, two deputy chairs and members in charge of military and police affairs. Members of the People’s Committees are appointed and dismissed by the chair of district or town.
The resolution shall take effect from January 1, 2021./.
