Problems relating to the great national unity should be added to draft documents to be submitted to the 12th National Party Congress, slated for early 2016, the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) presidium said at its meeting in Hanoi on October 3-4.

VFF Vice President and General Secretary Vu Trong Kim said the 12th National Party Congress is a political event of paramount importance which will review 30 years of “doi moi” (reform) efforts since 1986 and the implementation of the 11th National Party Congress’s resolution, and map out orientations and missions on national development between 2016 and 2020.

Participants at the meeting paid heed to building and bringing into play the great unity within the Party and among people, saying that unity is the greatest power to help the country weather all challenges throughout history.

Former VFF President Huynh Dam stressed that Vietnam wouldn’t have succeeded in national protection and development if it had lacked the great unity. The unity within the Party is a precondition for the unity in the entire people, and this issue must be clarified in the draft documents.

He stressed the need to enhance the role of the VFF, which is a political alliance and a voluntary union that is able to protect people’s legitimate rights and gather Vietnamese people’s solidarity.

Nguyen Tuc, head of the VFF’s advisory council for cultural and social affairs, said the Party needs to help the entire political system grasp thoroughly the late President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology on the great national unity.

He noted that nowadays, intensifying unity must be closely associated with ensuring people’s interests, and one of the momentums for people’s strengthened unity is their right to mastery respected.

At the VFF presidium’s meeting, attendees also gave feedback on other issues raised in the draft documents such as the building of a pure and strong Party, the political system reform, education – training and science – technology.
