– Most voters’ proposals sent to the 14th National Assembly’s 11th meeting have been dealt with, Chairman of the NA Standing Committee’s Ombudsman Board Duong Thanh Binh said on October 20.
He made the statement while delivering a report on answers to voters’ petitions and the settlement of citizen’s complaints and denunciations during the opening of the second session of the 15th NA.
According to the report, as many as 807 voter's proposals have been sent to competent agencies. Their complaints are related to most areas of social life, including natural resources and environment, policies for contributors to the nation’s revolutionary cause, employment, social security, agriculture, rural areas, organisational structure and policies towards cadres and civil servants, transportation, education and training.
The majority of ministers and heads of centrally-run agencies directly responded to voters' petitions. A number of voters' complaints have been resolved by the ministries and agencies, which provided full information on issues of their concern, meeting the requirements and aspirations of voters and the people. However, some answers did not contain enough information and failed to satisfy the voters. In addition, a number of petitions have not been resolved due to a delay in compilation and submission of guiding documents, it said.
The report also pointed that the NA's agencies should further strengthen supervision of the promulgation of legal documents and supervise emerging problems directly related to people's lives. It is necessary for the NA delegations and deputies to improve the handling of voters' proposals, and promptly transfer them to competent agencies for settlement in accordance with the law.
The Government should direct the ministries and centrally-run agencies to fix shortcomings as stated in the report, as well as review and deal with the recommendations, ensuring the quality and on-schedule resettlement./.
