Phuc, 61, succeeded Nguyen Tan Dung who was removed from office on 6 April 2016. Dung had served a maximum two terms in office and is no longer part of the Communist Party's top brass.

Punc, who served the country as its Deputy Prime Minister for five years, had served central province of Quang Nam as its governor. His selection to the post was procedural as he was the only candidate chosen by the Communist Party’s Congress at its January 2016 session.

He becomes part of a new triumvirate with party chief Nguyen Phu Trong and President Tran Dai Quang, who were endorsed in first week of April 2016. Parliament will vote on a new cabinet on Saturday.
