session of the National Assembly (NA), scheduled to take place in late October, will be important as it is expected to debate and pass a number of laws and review socio-economic situation, national defense and security and external affairs over the past year, NA Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung said at the 39th
session of the NA Standing Committee held on July 14 in Hanoi.
Most members of the Committee approved the 10th
session’s proposed agenda, under which lawmakers are expected to debate and pass 16 bills and one resolution. The session will also give comments on 10 draft laws and reports on the socio-economic situation during 2011-15 and tasks for the next year.
Many of the bills are of major significance as they regulate election, organization of the NA, access to information, establishment of associations and societies, press, and religions and beliefs.
The Supreme People’s Court, the Supreme People’s Procuracy and the Government will submit reports on their performance as well as crime and corruption prevention and control in 2015.
NA Chairman requests important bills to be carefully prepared before they are tabled for discussion.
“It is the quality of the bills submitted to the NA for discussion that matters. If any of those bills are not ready to be tabled in the next session, we can hold them back,” he said.-
