HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary and President Nguyễn Phú Trọng on Saturday met with voters in Hà Nội’s Ba Đình, Tây Hồ and Hoàn Kiếm districts to inform them about outcomes of the recent sixth session of the 14th National Assembly.
Most voters said the content of the session reflected democracy and responsibility, adding that reforms in the meeting have helped improve operational quality and efficiency of the legislature.
Congratulating the Party chief on his election as President, the voters expressed their wish and belief that the leader will successfully fulfill tasks assigned by the Party, the NA and people.
They suggested conducting votes of confidence at candidate registration and work places, and legislative meetings to ensure objectivity and accuracy of the work.
NA deputies should meet voters in their residential areas and work places to talk about specific topics in order to understand their aspirations, they said.
The voters proposed enhancing the inspection of the implementation of the Party’s resolutions, and noted their wish that the Party and State will continue with anti-corruption efforts.
The recent trials of corruption cases have signaled the resolve of the Party and State in this effort, they said, suggesting tightened inspection of heads of agencies and a comprehensive review of the personnel strategy.
They expressed their concern over the settlement of assets of unclear origin as prescribed in the revised anti-corruption law that was passed by the NA with a high number of votes.
Regarding the fight against corruption, Party General Secretary and President Trọng emphasised the need to turn words into action.
He also described protecting political security as a crucial and strategic task to spur national development, stressing the Party Central Committee’s attention to preventing “self-evolution” and “self-transformation” within the Party, as well as degradation among officials and Party members.
The leader agreed with the voters’ opinions on the responsibility for setting examples of officials and explained that the vote of confidence aims to prevent bad deeds among officials.
Trong echoed their views on the need to step up information work to raise public awareness of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) that was approved during the sixth session.
It is a must to intensify thematic supervision in socio-economic issues and inspection at different levels to prevent bad deeds, which, the leader said, needs a comprehensive plan.
At the meeting, the voters also applauded and showed their support for the Government’s drastic and effective solutions to manage the national economy and ensure social welfare.
They expressed their hope that the Party, State and NA will create breakthroughs in 2019 to make the country develop comprehensively and affirm its role when joining the CPTPP. — VNS
