Hanoi (VNA) – The quality of National Assembly (NA) deputies has contributed to improving the efficiency of NA activities in making laws, implementing supervision and giving decisions on important issues.

According to former NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung, deputies who served in the 13th NA demonstrated a high sense of responsibilities for the Nation and people and they became central in the NA’s activities.

He said they regularly listened to voter’s opinions, changed working methods to effectively do their duty and frankly presented their views.

The full-time NA deputies also performed a key role in agencies under the legislature, legislative activities, and NA deputations.

Many law makers and voters nationwide hoped that in the new tenure, the NA will continue to promote law-making activities and enhance efforts to improve the quality of decisions on important issues, and the efficiency of NA supervision.

To meet their expectations, improving the quality of NA deputies is considered an urgent task at present.

The Law on the NA Organisation revised in 2014, which took effect on January 1 this year, contains many regulations to enhance the quality of NA deputies, including a stipulation requiring deputies who are not full time must devote at least one third of their working time in a year to perform NA tasks and obligations.

During preparations for the upcoming 14 th NA and all-level People’s Council elections, which will take place on May 22, quality of candidates also receives special stress with the goal of selecting worthy representatives of the people to the highest state power organ.-VNA
