The NA voted to pass six laws, 12 thematic resolutions and the General Resolution of the Session. The legislators discussed the absorption, revision and opinions on eight bills and resolutions on other important contents.
After reviewing major work during the fourth session of the 15th NA, the NA chairman Huệ asked voters, people, organisations, and People’s Councils at all levels to join the NA supervising the implementation of resolutions and Government commitments.
“The joint efforts would create a strong motivation to accompany, boost and implement Party, State and Government’s policies effectively,” he said.
Huệ said the 4th session of the 15th National Assembly was successful.
“The National Assembly recognises and highly appreciates the determination and efforts of agencies of the National Assembly, the Government, the Việt Nam Fatherland Front, the Supreme People's Court, the Supreme People's Procuracy and other agencies, as well as concerned organisations that closely coordinated and carefully prepared for the meeting,” he said.
Although there were certain adjustments to the programme, it still ensured flexibility and efficiency in administration and successful implementation of the session's agenda with high consensus over a shorter time than previous meetings.
“The 6th conference of the 13th Central Committee of the Party has requested to focus on implementing important guidelines and tasks to continue building and perfecting the socialist rule of law state in Việt Nam. Of that, the need to continue to renovate the organisation and operation of the National Assembly is emphasised,” Huệ said, adding that the direction was thoroughly grasped, spread and reflected through NA activities, its agencies and every deputy at this session.
Huệ said that he believed that under the shrewd leadership of the Party, the support and supervision of voters and the coordination of the President, the Government, the Việt Nam Fatherland Front, the Supreme People's Court, the Supreme People's Procuracy and relevant agencies and organisations, the National Assembly would perform better, and be more democratic, creative, drastic and practical, making worthy contributions to the cause of national construction, development and defence. — VNS
