HA NOI (VNS) — National Assembly deputies highlighted the need to make fundamental adjustments to the Civil Code to ensure human and civil rights, while debating the draft revised Civil Code at the ongoing eighth session of the 13th legislature in Ha Noi yesterday.
The draft code comprises 710 articles, of which 265 will be maintained, 298 revised, 174 supplemented and 147 removed.
It protects human and civil rights as well as the basic principals of the socialist-oriented market economy regarding property, business freedom, and equality rights featured in the 2013 Constitution.
The supplements and amendments are intended to promote the fundamental roles held by the code.
This includes creating an efficient legal mechanism to ensure civil rights for individuals and legal entities; minimising civil authorities' intervention into establishing, changing or ending civil relations; and facilitating business production and utilising effectively social resources.
Deputies agreed that clearer regulations to specify forms of public and private ownership would make it easier for agencies to handle related legal matters.
Meanwhile, Nguyen Van Hien, a representative from southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, asked for an explanation of a "commercial" and "non-commercial" legal entity stipulated in the code.
Deputies agreed with a Government proposal to collect public comment early next year on the code after it is dealt with by the National Assembly at this meeting.
Deputies also discussed the draft laws on sea and island resources. — VNS
