A thematic report on the supervision of the implementation of policies and laws on the prevention and fight against child abuse will be submitted to the 9th session.

Other items on the supervision programme include reports on the operation in 2020 of the NA’s agencies, the Government, the Supreme People’s Court, the Supreme People’s Procuracy, the State Audit, among others.

The lawmakers also passed the resolution amending and supplementing Resolution No.81/QH2014/QH13 on the implementation of the Law on the Organisation of People’s Courts.

Accordingly, between June 10, 2019 and February 1, 2022, the Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court will be allowed to submit proposals for the assignment of judges of the court to the NA.

On the day, the NA also discussed draft laws amending and supplementing some articles of the Law on Organisation of the Government and the Law on Organisation of the Local Governments, and the Law on Cadres and Civil Servants and the Law on Public Employees.

The NA will continue its working day on June 11 with discussions on the draft law on military reserve force.

The deputies will hear a report on approving proposals on the appointment of the chief judge of the Supreme People’s Court, and discuss the issue.

In the afternoon, they are scheduled to adopt a resolution on ratifying balance of State budget in 2017 and a resolution on the programme building laws and ordinances in 2019, as well as discuss the Law on Library.

Resolution on Law on the Organisation of People’s Courts passed

The resolution amending and supplementing Resolution No. 81/2014/QH13 on the implementation of the Law on the Organisation of People’s Courts sailed through the National Assembly during its seventh session in Hanoi on June 10.

The legislature decided to supplement Article 1a to Resolution No. 81/2014/QH13 prescribing the implementation of Point a, Clause 1, Article 69 of the 2014 Law on the Organisation of People’s Courts.

Accordingly, between June 10, 2019 and February 1, 2022, the Chief Judge of the Supreme People’s Court will be allowed to submit proposals for the assignment of judges of the court to the NA.

The NA Standing Committee acknowledged that the shortage of human resources for the position of judge of the Supreme People’s Court is an urgent issue emerging during the realisation of the Law on the Organisation of People’s Courts.

If the issue is not addressed promptly, it would affect the operation of the council of judges as well as the personnel work of the Supreme People’s Court, it said.

The Committee asked the court to intensify personnel training and planning to ensure human resources for the posts of judge and chief judge in the next period.

 

NA deputies debate laws on government organisation

National Assembly deputies shared the view that the Prime Minister and ministers should be given more power, while discussing the draft law amending and supplementing some articles of the Law on Organisation of the Government and the Law on Organisation of the Local Governments on June 10.

Associate Prof., Dr. Le Minh Thong, Assistant to the NA Chairperson, said that grating more power to the Prime Minister must be carried out in line with the Constitution.

Besides, the draft law needs to further specify rights of ministries, helping them perform the role of providing consultations for the Government and the Prime Minister, he added.

Thong suggested preparing for the merger of ministries with similar functions to deal with the overlap in management between them, explaining that the streamlining matches the spirit of Resolution No. 18-NQ/TW adopted at the Party Central Committee’s sixth plenum.

To carry out the reform, some tasks should be transferred to the society and businesses in order to reduce workloads of State agencies, he said.

Thong said the new point of the Law on Organisation of the Government lies with the new notion of Government agencies which will have streamlined structure and clear tasks.

The discussion was part of the ongoing seventh session of the 14th National Assembly.
