(VOVworld) - The National Assembly Standing Committee’s 36th session opened on Monday in Hanoi with priority given to preparations for the upcoming 132nd General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union.

National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung called for preparations for the 132nd General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU 132) to be completed. He asked the organizing committee to coordinate with the IPU’s Secretariat, the relevant ministries and sectors, and Hanoi’s authorities to ensure the event’s success, contributing to elevating the global status of Vietnam and its National Assembly. He said that IPU 132’s agenda should represent Vietnam’s spirit and identity to assert that Vietnam is an active and responsible member of the global community. Mr. Hung said: “This is an opportunity to introduce Vietnam’s image to the world and step up our international integration. The resolutions of debates should convey Vietnam’s message of peace, culture, history, friendliness, spirit of cooperation, and amicable relations with other countries.”

Tran Van Hang, deputy head of the organizing committee, said preparations concerning communications, protocol, security, and healthcare for the event have been completed. The Vietnam News Agency, the Voice of Vietnam, Vietnam Television, and other media agencies have been showing Vietnam’s preparations. 

The meeting agenda includes the 2016 legislative program, a draft report on the revised law on the Vietnam Fatherland Front and the law on the promulgation of legal documents.

Also on the agenda are proposals on possible changes to the revised Laws on audit, statistics, administrative and civil litigation, and supervisory activities of the National Assembly and People’s Councils.

The NA Standing Committee will also pose questions to Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court Truong Hoa Binh on unjust verdicts and ways to correct them and to Minister-Chairman of the Committee for Ethnic Minority Giang Seo Phu on implementation of Program 135 to support extremely disadvantaged communes.

Other debates will focus on the apparatus of the Supreme People’s Procuracy and capital invested in Tinh Phong – Dung Quat 2 road construction in the central province of Quang Ngai.

The Committee will also discuss preparations for the upcoming National Assembly meeting.
