Speaking after being elected, Mr. Tran Tho said he would try his best to complete the tasks. Recognizing the difficult challenges in the terms of socio-economy in 2012 significantly affecting that in 2013 and surely lasting for the following years, he called: “Each of us has to further promote the comprehensive strengths, concentrating, striving, and thinking correctly and working more and more, striving to maintain a stable Da Nang, continuing the sustainable development.”
The new Chairman of City People’s Council suggested the delegates to ceaselessly listen carefully, immediately reflecting the reasonable, legal and proper and recommendations of the people, enhancing the supervisory liability, implementing resolutions of the People’s Council to improve the living standards of the people.

He also expressed his gratitude to the People’s Council members, teams of officials and the citizens who always supported him on his service, expected the people to ignore his omissions and concurrently sent the message to the city leadership to at any time unite and build the trust within the people.

“My duties are today finished but my responsibility still lasts. I contribute my general ideas however you must take responsibility for your decisions. Building Da Nang as today, we are not entitled to satisfy that there are many works to do. I believe that the city will further develop provided that all of you must be in the same mind, and as doing, it must be conclusively,” Mr. Thanh said and showed to continuously hold the office of Chairman of the National Assembly delegation, Chairman of the unfortunate children of the City.
Head of Central Committee of Internal Affairs also expressed that there were many Department leaders signed with relief in the meetings when he was not be Chairman of the People’s Council because they would not be questioned or blamed. “I request Mr. Tran Tho to continue this spirit. Not discipline or punish someone that to be responsible with the people,” Mr. Thanh stressed.
In respect of the position of the Party Committee Secretary, Mr. Thanh revealed: “It is likely Mr. Tran Van Minh (former Chairman of Da Nang People’s Committee) will hold the position of the Party Committee Secretary, or the Politburo will appoint the Central party member to hold this position.”
