Representatives of the Vietnamese community in Thailand have stressed the necessity to stipulate the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam in the to-be-revised Constitution.

They made the point when joining the staff of the Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand, Vietnamese lawyers, and overseas Vietnamese students in a discussion on the draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution of Vietnam in Bangkok on March 21.

They pointed to the Party’s close bond with the nation and its tested driving power to rally the entire nation’s strength in developing the country towards progress, democracy and civilization, expressing their confidence in the Party’s leadership in the national construction and defence.

Many said the draft amendments to the Constitution are positive, creating an important legal foundation for the homeland’s development while highlighting democracy, human rights, and citizens’ rights in all fields.

Vietnamese Ambassador Ngo Duc Thang said he expects the event helped the Vietnamese community in Thailand better understand the contents as well as significance of the work of amending the 1992 Constitution.

He stressed that the issues raised in the draft Constitution amendments are important to the country’s future development, construction and defence orientations.-VNA
