HA NOi (VNS) — The National Assembly yesterday adopted a Resolution on the Law and Ordinance Making Programme for 2016 as well as adjustments to corresponding programmes for this year.

Under the resolution, submission of the draft Law on Demonstration for discussion will be delayed from the 9th session to the 11th session while the draft law on population will be removed from the 2015 programme.

Meanwhile, several resolutions will be added to the NA's working plan this year, including one on the lump sum payment of social insurance one year after an employee has stopped working.

The draft revised law on import-export tariffs will go through the NA at the 10th session.

Also yesterday, Justice Minister Ha Hung Cuong submitted a report summarising public opinion and recommendations on the revised draft Civil Code.

As of May 15, approximately 8.5 million comments and suggestions had been collected, many of which agreed that the draft Civil Code comprehensively institutionalised the Party's viewpoints and policies defined in the nation's socio-economic development strategy, the platform for national construction during the transition towards socialism, the strategy to improve the legal system and the judicial reform strategy.

It also realises regulations of the 2013 Constitution regarding human rights, citizen rights and building a market-oriented economic mechanism.

The government's report further clarified 10 issues of public interests, including the responsibilities of authorised agencies in protecting civil rights, individual's personal rights, the subject of civil legal relations and forms of ownership.

During the session, NA deputies also discussed the legislature's supervision programme for 2016.

The NA will have three sittings next year to pass several key pieces of legislation including environment protection tax, a single, lump-sum social insurance payment and the market watch ordinance.

These and other details, including elections to the 14th National Assembly, were contained in the 2016 oversight programme announced yesterday by the head of the NA's Office, Nguyen Hanh Phuc. — VNS
