rights and legitimate interests of the people and the interests of the nation
must be at the centre of the lawmaking process, permanent member of the Party
Central Committee’s Secretariat Vo Van Thuong has said.
He made the remark while
addressing a national teleconference held on November 3 to launch implementation
of the Politburo’s Conclusion No. 19-KL/TW, issued on October 14, that
identified orientations for the 15th National Assembly (NA)’s
Thuong stressed that to keep
social order and discipline and create a legal corridor for national
construction and defence, the Party has always attached importance to lawmaking
activities. In particular, facing national reform requirements and tasks, the
Politburo timely issued a thematic resolution on the strategy for building and
completing the legal system by 2010, with a vision to 2020.
However, the legal system still
has certain shortcomings as seen in the lack of stability and forecastability
in certain areas, inconsistent and unfeasible regulations, and slow reform of
the lawmaking mindset, he pointed out.
The official held that the
making and promulgation of laws must be prudent and meet strict quality
requirements. He laid emphasis on the need to address the instability of legal
documents so that newly issued laws won’t have to be amended, or people’s trust
in the legal system and investors’ confidence may be eroded.
At the meeting, participants
discussed the implementation of a project setting out orientations for the
lawmaking programme of the 15th NA./.
