The main reasons for the weakness of the South Vietnamese government was that Diem was a corrupt leader who refused to give peasants land. He did not like Buddhism and treated the majority of the Buddhist population badly. As a consequence the peasants wanted communism as they thought it would mean greater equality and supported the Vietminh.
