HA NOI (VNS)— National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung yesterday signed the revised 1992 Constitution adopted at the recently concluded sixth session of the 13th National Assembly.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, he affirmed that the Constitution was a political and legal document of special importance, a fundamental law of the State that reflected the will and aspiration of the whole nation and provided strategic orientations for national development.

He said that the 13th NA's first session issued a resolution on amending and supplementing the 1992 Constitution and establishing the Committee for Drafting Amendments to the 1992 Constitution.

Feedback on the draft was gathered from agencies, organisations and individuals, including overseas Vietnamese. Based on their opinions, the National Assembly considered the draft during three sessions and adopted it on November 28 at the sixth sitting, Chairman Hung said.

The top legislator emphasised the historical mission of the revised Constitution, saying that it not only reflected the progress of the country but also ensured a firmer political and legal foundation for the State and people in the face of the era's new challenges.

With the adoption of the revised Constitution, the NA accomplished its glorious mission, together with the nation entering a new period of development, he noted.

The NA leader once again thanked people nationwide for their contributions to building the Constitution. — VNS
