NA Standing Committee ponder vote procedures
HA NOI (VNS)— The National Assembly Standing Committee discussed a draft resolution on procedures for conducting a vote of confidence on persons holding elected positions or appointed by the NA or People's Councils last Saturday.
NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung stressed the need to clarify the difference between a vote of confidence, conducted to measure people's trust in an official, and a no-confidence motion.
The majority of committee members agreed to a proposal of four levels to assess the confidence in an official. Those who got less than 50 per cent of votes for two consecutive years would have to undergo a no-confidence motion at the National Assembly or People's Council.
The drafting board will revise the plan before resubmitting it to the NA for further examination.
The NA Standing Committee also looked into the bill on the capital city, which is to be submitted to the up-coming NA session for approval. — VNS
