Heads of Party Committees provide leadership and guidance on all activities of organizations and units, are held responsible for tasks assigned and create momentum to strong development or vice versa.

Heads of administrations are held responsible for activities of organizations and units under his/her management.

Reality shows that if one person holds both positions, he/she is vested with great authority. If they have ethic and high sense of responsibility before the people and Party, observe organizational principles, and possess a culture of leadership, negative phenomena will less likely to happen. Everything will be solved quickly. Otherwise, vice versa. What is debatable is degradation of power, not mistake of an individual leader. Absolute authority leads to absolute degradation! Hence, authority of organizations is turned into individual power. Those individual allow themselves the right to grant power to others, particularly power relating to organization and personnel. It is possible to confirm that over concentration of power in an individual under whatever name is not tantamount to strengthening Party’s leadership. Thus, this can easily distort and weaken the leading role and pose instability to institutions and society.

In the current political system, a majority of Party leaders do not hold the positions of heads of administrations. So relations between heads of Party Committees and administrations are dialectical relations between the leading Party and managing State. The relations are manifested in some concrete areas: relations on the basis of common ideology and goals, observance of Party’s principles, clear division of responsibilities, close coordination and unanimity in leadership and guidance of organizations and units and righteousness, sincerity and frankness.

In a nutshell, relations and responsibilities of heads (of both party committees and administrations) are manifested  by the following key characteristics: strict implementation of the principle of democratic concentration; collective leadership, individual responsibility;  vanguard role, righteousness, matching words with deeds; democracy, sense of collectiveness, culture of leadership; professionalism, capacity, virtues, leadership style and objective, comprehensive and concrete points of view and working methods./.
