|VFFCC President Tran Thanh Man
He was reporting on voters and people’s opinions at the opening meeting of the fifth session of the 14th-tenure NA in Hanoi on May 21.
He said since the NA’s fourth session in late 2017, the VFFCC Presidium and the NA Standing Committee have received more than 3,460 opinions that people nationwide wanted to send to the parliament.
He noted the public expressed their trust in the Party’s leadership and the State’s steering and management role. They hope the NA, the Government and all-level administrations will continue paying attention to the problems they mentioned at previous sessions of the NA, including ensuring social welfare; prioritising development resources for disadvantaged, ethnic minority, disaster-hit and climate change-prone areas; ensuring social order and safety; and fighting crimes.
The VFFCC Presidium asked the NA and the Government to promptly institutionalise and seriously and effectively implement resolutions of the Party Central Committee, especially the resolutions on economic development, personnel work, and salary and social insurance reforms, which were issued at the 5th, 6th and 7th session of the 12th-tenure Party Central Committee.
They should promote their responsibility towards major issues discussed at this 5th session such as the draft revised law on denunciation, the draft law on special administrative-economic units, the draft revised anti-corruption law, and the laws amending some articles of the laws on construction, housing and urban planning.
Meanwhile, the parliament needs to press on with reforming NA deputies’ meetings with voters so that more people can express their opinions, Man said.
In his report, the official asked the NA and the Government to order relevant agencies and authorities at all levels to increase attention to agriculture, farmers and rural areas. The Cabinet should step up administrative reforms at all sectors and agencies, from central to grassroots levels.
The Party and the State need to take stronger and more effective solutions to fight corruption and wastefulness and promote thrift practice in the whole political system and society. They also need to order law protection agencies to strictly handle persons with corruption and wastefulness, boost the effectiveness of corrupt asset recovery, and enhance the responsibility of leaders of ministries, sectors and administrations in this work.
VFFCC President Man also called on the Government to overhaul urban planning and construction licensing activities and take drastic actions to combat illegal sand mining and deforestation, which were continually reported to the parliament at its sessions from 2013 to 2017 but still linger.
