National Assembly (NA) deputies of the northern province of Thai Nguyen should always realise the responsibility of people’s representatives, said Party General Secretary Nong Duc Manh.

The Party leader made the request while delivering a speech at a ceremony to mark the 65 th anniversary of the Vietnamese National Assembly held by Thai Nguyen province on January 6.

Manh spoke highly of Thai Nguyen province’s great socio-economic development efforts which he said are worthy of the revolutionary tradition of the former “resistance capital”.

Over the past tenure, NA deputies of Thai Nguyen province have promoted their capacity and high responsibilities before voters, making effective contributions to legislation and supervision work as well as participating in deciding the country’s major issues, he said.

According to the General Secretary, immediately after the 11 th National Party Congress, all levels and branches should actively prepare for the 13 th National Assembly election and People’s Council elections at all levels.

In the context of the country and the world facing many difficulties and challenges, the Thai Nguyen authorities and people should make greater efforts to ensure the province’s comprehensive development, he said.

On the occasion, the Party chief extended New Year greetings to all cadres, Party members, war invalids and families of martyrs as well as people of all ethnic minorities throughout the province.

During the 2007-2011 tenure, NA deputies of Thai Nguyen province have actively participated in activities of NA sessions and held 239 meetings with around 30,000 voters.

They have received some 2,000 citizens in charge of complaints and sped up the settlement of 778 letters of complaints./.
