HCM CITY (VNS) — President Truong Tan Sang and HCM City National Assembly deputies met with voters from Districts 1 and 3 yesterday to hear opinions about the sixth session of the 13th NA.

Local voters praised the outcome of the session, through which the legislature adopted many resolutions and laws, especially the draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution, which they said had progressive articles, particularly on the rights and obligations of citizens towards better protecting their legal interests.

They also welcomed the adoption of the land law, which they said clearly regulates the responsibilities and the role of State agencies in land retrieval to help prevent unreasonable land reclaimaition.

Voters also applauded the NA's decision in adjusting targets relating to economic growth, State budget collections and over-expenditures.

However, they asked the NA to increase their supervisory role towards issues such as over-expenditure quotas and action programmes of ministers following question-and-answer sessions.

Voters also raised concerns over the increase in crimes, environmental pollution and corruption and wastefulness in many localities and sectors, and proposed the NA have stricter regulations to deal with these issues.

Welcoming the sincere and straightforward opinions of local voters, Sang clarified some issues and stressed that issues of voters' concerns would be seriously considered to make work more effectively. — VNS
