Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong met with voters in Hanoi on December 6 to inform them of the outcomes of the National Assembly’s eighth session and listen to their opinions.

Most of the voters lauded the outcomes of the session, especially the efficiency of the vote of confidence, and measures that cabinet members gave during the question-and-answer session.

Many voiced their concern about issues related to corruption and low-quality and fake commodities that seriously affect people’s health.

Regarding foreign investment attraction, they emphasised the need to carefully consider the socio-economic and defence-security interests, ensuring that investment do not affect the national security.

The voters also worried about high public debts and Government bond debts, slow enforcement of laws, as well as emerging problems in education and training.

Acknowledging voters’ opinions, the Party chief said that during the NA’s eighth session, 30 laws were debated, 18 laws were passed and many important resolutions were approved.

Especially, deputies passed a resolution on conducting vote of confidence on officials holding positions elected or approved by the NA and People’s Councils, he said.

He also agreed with voters on the need to further promote the role and responsibilities of deputies so as to ensure the quality and efficiency of the NA sessions.

About anti-corruption work, the Party leader affirmed the Party’s consistent stance of resolutely fighting corruption and wastefulness without any compromise while still maintaining political stability.

In the coming time, the Party will continue speeding up the Party Central Committee’s Resolution 04 on party building as well as the Politburo’s resolution on studying and following President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example, ensuring purity within the Party, he said.

Regarding the East Sea issue, General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong underscored that a series of measures have been rolled out to protect the national independence and sovereignty while maintaining an environment of peace and stability for development and friendship with other countries, and not allowing external forces to cause disturbance.

“We are determined to follow a foreign policy of peace, independence, self-reliance, and being friend with all countries,” stated the Party chief.

He also mentioned a number of issues raised by voters, including public servant reduction, wage reform, organisation of People’s Council, and ensuring enforcement of laws.

He also expressed hope to hear more from voters so as to help the Party and the National Assembly better their performance.-VNA
