President Truong Tan Sang has commended the National Assembly (NA) Party Committee’s efforts to put the Politburo’s implementation strategy for judicial reforms into practice. These efforts have had an effect on the NA’s development of legal frameworks, and the supervision and inspection of judicial agencies.

During a working session on August 27 with the committee in Hanoi, President Sang, who also acts as head of the Central Steering Committee for Judicial Reform, noted that under the committee’s leadership the NA had made progress in law-making and legal system reform in terms of judicial organisational structures and modes of operation.

Many adjustments and supplementations have been made to judicial laws, contributing to the enhanced effectiveness of judicial reform, he said.

President Sang also pushed for further improvements to the quality of law-making and called for an increase in supervising judicial activities and agencies by elected supervisory bodies, as well as controls for the powers of judicial agencies.

He also requested the NA’s supervisory function over judicial activities to be enhanced and effective measures for addressing problems to be developed, in accordance with the 2013 Constitution.

The President also emphasised the importance of close coordination between ministries and the NA in accelerating the institutionalisation of laws.

On his part, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung, Secretary of the NA Party Committee, acknowledged President Sang’s opinions.

During the process of institutionalising legal regulations, it is necessary to define clear roles for judicial agencies regarding legal procedures and exercising legal power, as well as developing control mechanisms for each other, he said.

He shared President Sang’s view on the need to improve the supervisory efficiency of elected supervisory agencies.-VNA
