HA NOI (VNS)— Law makers have begun to discuss drafted revisions to the 1992 Constitution and instructions for implementing the vote of confidence resolution on officials holding positions elected or approved by the National Assembly (NA) or People's Councils.
During the first day of the Standing Committee's 8th session, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung stressed that the committee aimed to ensure that voting procedures were both effective and objective.
Hung suggested that the draft be completed a few months before the 5th session of the NA, which is scheduled to start on May 20, 2013.
The committee will also review the NA's fourth session, draw up plans for the upcoming session and discuss the NA's external affairs and foreign co-operation programmes as well as the committee's working plan for 2013.
Discussing the NA's fourth session, chief of the NA's office Nguyen Hanh Phuc said that the governing body had decided many important issues of critical interest to voters.
NA Deputy Chairman Uong Chu Luu and many deputies also agreed that the recent NA session had several accomplishments to take pride in. Adopting the NA's vote of confidence resolution on officials holding positions elected or approved by the National Assembly (NA) or People's Councils was a major breakthrough, he said, as was discussing the revision of the 1992 Constitution for the first time and revising the anti-corruption law.
During its fifth session, the NA is scheduled to adopt nine bills and a drafted resolution and discuss eight other bills. The NA also discussed the drafted revision of the 1992 Constitution along with many reports on socio-economic and fiscal issues. — VNS
