HA NOI (VNS)— The National Assembly Standing Committee yesterday discussed the implementation of Resolution 35 on holding confidence votes for those who hold positions appointed or approved by the NA or People's Committees.
The NA's Legal Committee suggested that firing or removing someone from office would take effect the following session to make sure there would be enough time to find a replacement.
There were also suggestions on allowing the NA or People's Committees to have flexible time before changing personnel.
According to NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung, conducting confidence votes must be taken with the plan that there would be replacement.
Hung said that voting must be based on the basis of representing the interests of citizens first.
According to resolution 35, the National Assembly and People's Committees at all levels will conduct confidence voting in their first sessions, starting in the second year of each term.
The NA is expected to start conducting confidence votes in May 2013 and the people's committees at all level are scheduled to start around June next year. — VNS
