Hanoi (VNA) – National Assembly deputies from previous terms have left a tremendous example for future tenures to follow, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung said at a meeting with more than 100 former NA deputies in Hanoi on January 5.

According to the Chairman, since the first legislature, there have been a total of 5,976 NA deputies who have been proud to represent the people’s wills and aspirations and shape important national matters.

Encouraged by national unity and the nation’s will, the deputies have performed their tasks well, he said.

At the meeting, the top legislator paid tribute to the NA deputies from the first to the fifth tenure who scarified their lives for national construction and defence.

Since the sixth tenure, the NA has worked to better serve the public for a wealthy people, a strong nation and an equal and civilized society.

Stressing the significance of the first General Election Day (January 6, 1946), NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung said decisions made by the first legislature laid the foundations for the operation of the NA in the following years.

The NA Chairman also attributed the success of the first general elections to the strength of national unity.

He called on future NA deputies to carry forward the achievements recorded by their predecessors and elevate the role and position played by the legislature.

Representatives of former NA deputies noted with pleasure the Party’s fine leadership over the years.

They voiced their hope that the NA will continue to overhaul legislative activities, fulfil the target of completing the legal system by 2020 and further raise the role and position of the highest State body, deserving the confidence of the people.-VNA
