3,854 comments and petitions sent to NA

The Central Committee of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front and the NA Standing Committee synthetized 3,854 comments and petitions from voters and people nationwide sent to the NA.

Accordingly, the effective leadership of the Party and State as well as efforts of all ministries and agencies on dealing with socio-economic issues are appraised.

The voters and citizens also express their concerns about the organization of the Party Congress at all levels, challenges to socio-economic development, traffic accidents, fake goods, and environmental pollution.

The world and regional political security is also closely followed. Voters and citizens are worried and discontented with China’s illegal activities such as their reclamation projects on Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes, which violate the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982, Viet Nam’s sovereignty, sovereign and jurisdiction as well as the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC).

They expect that the Party and State continue launching effective guidelines and measures to protect the nation’s sea and island sovereignty.

In addition, petitions on agriculture, farmer and rural areas, social security, policies and laws on land, natural resources management, environmental protection, education and training, healthcare, anti-corruption, anti-waste and administrative procedure reform were also proposed.
