National Assembly (NA) Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung on December 2 signed to certify the revised 1992 Constitution adopted at the freshly-ended sixth session of the 13th National Assembly.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, the NA Chairman affirmed that the Constitution is a political and legal document of special importance. It is a fundamental law of the State that reflects the will and aspiration of the whole nation as well as provides strategic orientations for national development.

He said that the 13th NA’s first session issued a resolution on amending and supplementing the 1992 Constitution and establishing the Committee for Drafting Amendments to the 1992 Constitution.

Feedback on the draft was gathered from agencies, organisations and individuals, including overseas Vietnamese. Based on their opinions, the National Assembly considered the draft during three sessions and adopted it on November 28 at the sixth sitting, Chairman Hung said.

The top legislator emphasised the historical mission of the revised Constitution, saying that it not only reflects the progress of the country but also ensures a firmer political and legal foundation for the State and people in the face of the era’s new challenges.

With the adoption of the revised Constitution, the NA accomplished its glorious mission, together with the nation entering a new period of development, he noted.

The NA leader once again thanked people nationwide for their contributions to building the Constitution.-VNA
