ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the political scenario prevailing in South Vietnam. Already beset by staggering economic problems and confronting a perilous military situation, the South Vietnamese government must now deal with a full blown political crisis. The main issue in South Vietnam today is corruption. Corruption is a broad term that encompasses all sorts of practices, such as nepotism and the conferral of favors. In addition, salaries in Vietnam are extraordinarily low, with generals making the equivalent of $100 per month and cabinet ministers $200 a month.
