Party General Secretary meets Hanoi voters


Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and a delegation of Hanoi deputies met voters of Ba Dinh, Dong Da and Hai Ba Trung districts in the capital city on November 19 to report the outcomes of the 15th National Assembly’s recently-concluded fourth session and listen to their opinions about issues of concern.

The meeting was held both online and in-person.

After listening to reports, a majority of voters agreed that under the sound and timely leadership of the Party, appropriate policies and effective supervision of the National Assembly, drastic direction of the Government, close collaboration between ministries and agencies and involvement of the entire political system, Vietnam has accomplished socio-economic development tasks this year.

They agreed with the Party’s consistent policy of upholding the strength of great national unity bloc, showing trust of the officials, Party members, voters and people in the Party, State and regime.

Voters also hailed that the Q&A sessions at the fourth sitting had taken place in a serious, democratic and scientific manner. Ministers answered questions frankly, meeting legitimate interests of voters and people.

Expressing delight at the success of the Party chief’s recent trip to China, they said the visit has further deepened the friendship between the two countries and heightened Vietnam’s role in the international arena.

On the occasion, they suggested the Party, State and Central Steering Committee on Prevention and Control of Corruption and Negative Phenomena better fight corruption from the early without any forbidden zone or exception.

They also called for attention to several important areas such as fighting COVID-19, ensuring medicines and medical equipment, improving medical capacity, stepping up transition to new growth model and digital economy, and improving the quality of drafting bills.

Between now and the year’s end, they said it is necessary to ensure the supply of necessities, particularly food and petrol.

Party chief Trong, for his part, asked Hanoi to take the lead in the fight against corruption.

He wished that voters and people would form a power of the whole Party and people to combat “internal invasion"./.
