HA NOI (VNS)— Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday vowed the Party and State would do everything possible to prevent and combat corruption.
Speaking at his meeting with voters in Ba Dinh District in Ha Noi, he said the challenge required trust and determination.
Meanwhile, voters proposed adopting a range of measures to forge a virtuous contingent of leadership staff.
The Party chief assured the voters the Resolution, set at the fourth meeting of the 11th Party Central Committee, was being implemented to curb the influence of interest groups and minimise the risk of moral hazard among Party members and managerial officials.
In response to suggestions on curtailing the upcoming sixth legislature's sitting, Party leader Trong said the session was scheduled to last 37 days, the longest ever tenure for legislators to pass key laws, including draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution and the Land Law.
During the sitting, the National Assembly will ratify 11 laws, comment on nine bills and discuss a range of issues pertaining to the national interest.
Speaking on confidence votes, the Party chief said the move ensured compliance with the Resolution on Party building, and would be improved as a means to combat corruption.
Addressing the revised draft Land Law, General Secretary Trong promised to rectify mistakes in site clearance and compensation. Voters suggested converting farmland, which is now predominantly occupied by households, into land for housing, making it easier for local people to resettle.
They also called for stronger monitoring efforts to ensure the enforcement of laws. — VNS
