HA NOI (VNS) — National Assembly (NA) deputies yesterday discussed a draft law on the organisation of full and part-time deputies at the National Assembly.

The focus of the discussion at the seventh session was about the number of full-time NA deputies, an outline of their work and their rights and responsibilities at central and local levels.

Most deputies agreed to increasing the number of full-time NA deputies from 25 per cent to 35 per cent of the assembly.

Deputy Pham Huy Hung from Ha Noi proposed that the number of full-time deputies should be increased term by term.

He added that the percentages of deputies from central and local levels should be clearly set.

He also proposed that the draft law stipulate the working time and the responsibilities and rights of part-time NA deputies before, during and after meeting sessions.

Deputy Nguyen Dinh Quyen, also from Ha Noi, said the draft law should clearly reflect the position and role of the National Assembly, which, he said, was the highest representative body of the people, the highest organ of State power - and a legislative body.

He said the draft law needed to clearly indicate the role and position of NA deputies and help raise the effectiveness of their activities.

Quyen also proposed that the age range for NA deputies should be clearly stipulated.

Deputy Huynh Van Tiep from the southern city of Can Tho said the responsibilities of the NA deputies in supervising the legal compliance of local People's Committees and People's Councils should also be clearly defined. — VNS
