VFF, NA agencies step up coordination

Hanoi, March 2 (VNA) – National Assembly (NA) Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung has stressed the quality of candidates as the most important factor of the upcoming election of deputies to the 14th NA and People’s Councils at all levels for 2016-2021.

The chief legislator, who is also Chairman of the National Election Council (NEC), made the remarks at a conference on coordination in 2016 between the NA’s Standing Committee and the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee (VFFCC)’s Presidium in Hanoi on March 2.

He noted his hope that the VFFCC’s Presidium will closely team up with the NA’s Standing Committee and the NEC for the success of the elections, an important political event of the country.

The NA Chairman urged the two agencies work closely with each other in building laws as well as in collecting voters’ opinions and supervising the settlement of people’s complaints and petitions.

VFFCC President Nguyen Thien Nhan said the VFF will continue to popularise the election, especially its new points, for social organisations and people from all walks of life.

The VFF will also continue to partner with the NA’s Standing Committee in law-making and supervision, and other legislative activities, he promised.

Other participants suggested reforming the coordination mechanism to allow the VFFCC Presidium to involve in the law building process from the beginning of the law drafting work.
