HA NOI (VNS) — Voters in Ha Noi's Ba Dinh and Hoan Kiem districts have shown their special interest in candidates ahead of the 12th National Party Congress and the elections for the 14th National Assembly (NA) and People's Councils at all levels.
At a meeting with Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong yesterday, they said that NA deputies and Party Central Committee members should be those who set examples of solidarity in their agencies and units.
Given Viet Nam's participation in many new-generation trade agreements which offer both opportunities and challenges to the country, the voters underlined the need for candidates to be thoroughly prepared to avoid lagging behind.
They also gave opinions on pressing issues such as crowded hospitals, environmental pollution, food hygiene safety, corruption and wastefulness.
Regarding national territorial sovereignty, the public suggested accelerating border demarcation and marker planting, firmly safeguarding the national land and sea sovereignty, and supporting fishermen's activities at sea.
Expressing their delight at the outcomes of the recent 10th sitting of the 13th National Assembly, especially the Q&A session, they noted their hope that the resolutions and codes approved at the meeting would soon be brought into life, and that the Party and State would make major decisions to bring the country forward.
Party General Secretary Trong stated that to develop the country, each Party member must set examples to ensure a strong Party and a pure political system.
He stressed the need to develop a modern, highly productive and competitive economy as it plays a central role in the national construction and development.
Hard work lies in the realisation of resolutions, he said, calling for joint efforts by the Party, people and army in performing the task. — VNS
