Hanoi (VNA) – The National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee and the Presidium of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) on March 14 approved revised work coordination regulations in a bid to improve bilateral collaboration in promoting the strength of the great national unity and promote the quality of NA deputies’ meetings with voters and their supervisory role.

At the meeting in Hanoi, participants reviewed the achievements as well as shortcomings in bilateral cooperation over the past 15 years.

President of the VFF Central Committee Tran Thanh Man said the two sides have obtained important outcomes in bilateral coordination over the last 15 years. To improve their partnership, the two agencies need to regularly exchange information through meetings. 

Man said the NA Standing Committee and the Presidium of the VFF Central Committee should continue working together to fine-tune mechanisms and policies, promote patriotic emulation movements and make law and ordinances. They also need to take part in supervisory activities of the NA and the NA Standing Committee, he noted.

NA Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said the two agencies have been coordinating effectively, helping to promote their activities as well as of the political system. Particularly, the bilateral coordination has greatly contributed to the reform and improvement of the quality of the NA’s activities, which have become more transparent and closer to people.

She also urged closer and more effective coordination to fulfill each side’s political tasks, especially the building of some draft laws pertaining to human rights, the rights and fundamental obligations of citizens, and the State apparatus, and the amendment of the joint resolution stipulating the organisation of NA deputies’ meetings with voters.

The top legislator also urged both sides to work closely to prepare for the NA’s collection of votes of confidence for persons who hold positions elected or approved by the NA at the parliament’s sixth session in October.-VNA
