Collecting public feedback on the draft documents to be submitted to the upcoming 13th Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) is a vivid illustration for the party’s efforts to ensure democracy in its ranks.
CPV Central Committee’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation vice-chairman Nguyen Phuoc Loc said this in a recent interview with Vietnam News Agency ahead of the Congress.
He said his commission has teamed up with the Vietnam Fatherland Front and socio-political organisations at the central level to hold 24 meetings and collect public feedback on the draft documents, with a view to engaging the whole community in policies to develop and protect the nation.
This showed the close relationship between the CPV and the people as well as the nation’s solidarity, he stressed.
The draft documents to be submitted to the Congress focused on the central role of the Vietnamese people in the cause of national construction and development, he said, adding the people’s ownership right is promoted in various fields, from building and rectification in the CPV, economic development to all-people national defence building.
Promoting democracy and the people’s ownership rights would make significant contributions to consolidating the people’s complete faith in the CPV, state and socialist regime, Loc said.
The draft Political Report pointed out several missions and solutions to improve democracy and ensure the people’s ownership rights.
These include the effective implementation of representative democracy and direct democracy, CPV members’ example setting in democracy implementation and compliance of the current regulations, and promotion of the people’s central role in the national development strategies.
He said the public had special interest in measures to ensure the smooth implementation of the CPV’s guidelines and policies, spoke highly of the country’s corruption prevention and control, while recommending specific and practical solutions to the fight against corruption to build a strong and pure party and state.
People also contributed various measures to the country’s three breakthrough programmes for the sustainable development of the country, he said.
Touching on the CPV’s mass mobilisation work, Loc stressed that it must be operated in a new form with a view to encouraging people from all walks of life to contribute more to the nation’s development goals.
The mass mobilisation commission would work to promote the role of the Fatherland Front and socio-political organisations, strengthen patriotic emulation campaigns, and exercise democracy.
