NDO - Party and State leaders met with voters in their constituencies to learn about their opinions ahead of the upcoming eight plenary session of the 14th National Assembly (NA) on October 1.

Politburo member and Minister of Public Security, General To Lam, who is also a member of the Bac Ninh Provincial National Assembly (NA) delegation, hosted a meeting with voters of Lang Ngam Commune in Gia Binh District of the northern province of Bac Ninh.

Minister To Lam briefed the voters on a number of issues relating to the national socio-economic, security and order situation and affirmed that security forces will continue to focus on fighting crime in order to maintain security and order. He said he expects voters to step up supervision over members of the National Assembly, People’s Councils and governments at all levels so that their performance may be improved.

Also on October 1, Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh met with voters in four communes of Vung Liem District, in the Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long, to listen to their opinions before the eighth session of the 14th NA.

At the meeting, the VP informed voters of the agenda of the upcoming parliamentary plenary session. She also heard voters’ opinions on measures to protect the environment and forests, fight corruption, and accelerate construction of some key transport projects.

In addition, the voters voiced concerns over numerous issues, including the rampancy of fake goods, goods of unknown origin and low-quality commodities; food safety; quality of healthcare services for health insurance card holders; and benefits for governmental employees working at offices of communes, wards and townships.

VP Thinh affirmed that the Party and State are determined to fight corruption, citing a number of recent high-profile corruption trials as an example. After listening to the voters’ opinions, the VP promised to transfer them to the NA at its upcoming meeting.
