The compiling board under the Committee for drafting amendments to the 1992 Constitution held its 7th plenary meeting in Hanoi on April 3 to review the updated draft based on the comments from the public.

Addressing the event, National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung said the people nationwide have expressed their will through their recommendations to the draft amendments. It is the job of the compiling board to sum up the feedback and select suitable contents for the constitutional amendments, he said, adding that the selection must be based on good reasons and well-founded arguments.

At the same time, the reasons why certain opinions cannot be accepted must also be explained to the public.

Underscoring the feedback collection as one of the major activities in the country’s political life, Hung said the organisation of the referendum should be examined so that it will be done better from now on.

The NA chairman said public opinions on the draft will continue to be gathered and sent to the committee for drafting amendments until September 30 this year before the draft revised constitution is submitted to the National Assembly.-VNA
