Hanoi (VNA) – Lawmakers have evaluated that the 14th National Assembly (NA)’s fifth session, which concluded in Hanoi on June 15, was organised scientifically and efficiently.

Talking with reporters on the sidelines of the session, Deputy Luu Binh Nhuong of Ben Tre province said the NA’s discussion and approval of important laws aims to create breakthrough and sustainable development for the country from now to 2020.

Nhuong, however, said that there are contents and tasks that need to be strictly assessed in order to prepare more carefully, avoiding the postponed approval such as the draft law on special administrative-economic units.

The organisation of the session and the questioning form were changed, requiring NA deputies to carefully prepare questions, so that the questioned issues must be practical and constructive, not only showing personal problems.

He affirmed that the Q&A activity have shown democracy, creating basic conditions for voters to directly supervise the operation of both the NA and NA deputies.

Sharing the same opinion, deputy Phung Van Hung of Cao Bang province highlighted improvements during the Q&A session, saying that it brought high efficiency for the session.

Through the session, voters could monitor activities of lawmakers right at the legislature, as well as the implementation of responsibilities of ministers and the Government’s leaders, he said.

Delegates asked short and concise questions, which went straight to the issues, while ministers answered openly without beating about the bush, Hung said, adding that the improvement needs to be maintained.

Deputy Thai Truong Giang from Ca Mau province said the session was a success as it adopted laws that are very appropriate and close to the reality. However, it is necessary to make more improvements in the coming time, he said.

While analyzing the approval of draft laws, deputy Phung Van Hung from Cao Bang province affirmed that decisions made by the NA during the session were very important and suitable to the country’s conditions and also met the aspirations of voters nationwide.

Sharing Hung’s opinion, deputy Thai Truong Giang from Ca Mau province appreciated the responsibility of NA deputies, who are representatives of voters to debate and contribute comments at the session.

Regarding the Q&A session, Giang suggested that ministers should answer more shortly and focus on the points in the coming time, adding that some laws need more time for legislators to give opinions such as the Law on Higher Education.

Deputy Vu Tien Loc from Thai Binh province said that NA’s decisions on socio-economic development, especially measures to accelerate the restructuring of State-owned enterprises have brought about positive results.

The session was organised democratically, he noted, adding that the NA’s operations have recently paid attention to the development of small and medium enterprises, through its discussion on solutions to economic development and economic laws.-VNA
