HA NOI (VNS) — Voters in Ha Noi's Ba Dinh District have raised concerns about the assets of leaders, saying that the declarations they had made were not strictly carried out.
They added that this could affect the selection of people for Party positions because it could lead to the appointment of dishonest people.
The voters were speaking to Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong on Saturday during a meeting with him in Ha Noi.
In reply, the Party leader suggested voters introduce commendable people to the upcoming 12th Party Centre Committee.
Many voters praised the success of the 11th congress of the Party Central Committee, particularly in the formation of criteria for those seeking election.
Trong said that to build a good agency, many principles and processes should be followed. The criteria set for personnel for the upcoming 12th Party Central Committee was again based on the removal of any contenders who did not qualify.
Many voters also expressed concern over the possibility of setting up processing factories to help farmers. Others said the Government needed to have polices to facilitate the growth of private business as 80 per cent of the country's enterprises were small or medium-sized.
Trong said he hoped voters would contribute to the strict implementation declarations made by leaders about their assets.
The same day, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc met voters in Phu Ninh District, Quang Nam province. They commended the performance of the National Assembly and hoped that it would increase its supervision of such issues as social welfare.
Phuc asked the local government to handle a number of proposals made by voters.
Meeting with voters in Vu Thu town, Thai Binh province, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai reviewed a number of socio-economic developments in recent years and listened to a report on new rural development in the province.
Hai also updated voters on major laws and decisions relating to rural areas' residents, agricultural production as well as new supporting programmes and social welfare policies.
Voters were also given information about several transport infrastructure and irrigation works, and leaders' answers to their questions at previous meetings.
Thai Binh Province's voters requested more investment in degraded transport routes and bridges.— VNS
