The draft revised Law on Government Organisation came under scrutiny at a plenary National Assembly (NA) session in Hanoi on June 1 under the chair of NA Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu.

Twenty lawmakers raised their voice over the apparatus, rights and responsibilities of the Cabinet, including the Prime Minister, Ministers and heads of ministry-level agencies.

In the afternoon session, member of the NA Standing Committee and Chairman of the NA Law Committee Phan Trung Ly delivered a report on acquiring feedback and making changes to the draft Law on the Organisation of Local Governments.

Different opinions by 21 legislators focused on the apparatus, rights and responsibilities of the People’s Councils and People’s Committees, including the number of their deputy heads, the local government models in rural, urban and island areas, the special administrative-economic units, and division, split-up and adjustment of administrative units.

On June 2, law-makers will consider possible changes to the amended Law on State budget, and the draft laws on the organisation of criminal investigative bodies, and detention.-VNA
