The National Assembly (NA) passed the laws on the NA organisation (revised) and on social insurance (revised) on November 20.

The newly revised Law on the Organisation of the National Assembly (revised) stipulates that NA deputies have the right to request the NA conduct a vote of confidence on a person holding a position elected or approved by the NA.

Under the law, delegations of NA deputies are responsible for organising meetings between deputies and constituents, as well as organising monitoring activities at constituencies.

The law, which has 7 chapters and 102 articles, also stipulates in greater details the scope of NA deputies’ activities.

The revised Law on Social Insurance has 9 chapters and 125 articles. An important new point in the newly passed law is that it gives the social insurance agency the power to conduct specialized inspections on businesses’ payment of social insurance, health insurance and unemployment insurance for employees.-VNA
