Voters satisfied with NA’s ninth session

The 13th National Assembly’s month-long ninth session successfully addressed numerous important issues of the country, according to opinions of many voters. 

Nguyen Phuong Thao from the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Internal Affairs said that 11 draft laws adopted and 15 others scrutinised during the session are a huge quantity of works, reflecting the enthusiasm and sense of responsibility of deputies. 

She appreciated Q&A sessions with Government officials, noting that even tiny matters relating to farmers’ livelihoods were also tabled for discussion. 

Voter Tran Quang Thang, head of the Ho Chi Minh City’s Institute for Economic Research and Management, said that the quality of the ninth session was improved compared to the previous ones. The law making process also saw many changes for the better, following international practices, which is an appropriate change in the integration process. 

He took note of the lively discussions outside the meeting room, saying that through such debates, NA deputies could reflect public opinions in a full and clearer manner. 

Meanwhile, voter Vo Van Truong from Tam Ky city of central Quang Nam province said that during the session, lawmakers put up many straightforward questions involving urgent issues of public concerns, including the Long Thanh airport project, migration in the Central Highlands region and deforestation for building hydro-power plants. 

However, several ministers did not give direct answers to these queries, he said, suggesting the chair of each session should require Cabinet members to make brief but accurate and go-to-the –point answers.
