The fifth mandate of the National Assembly has approved more than 38 draft laws since the 2018 General Election, National Assembly spokesman Leng Peng Long said on Sunday.
Peng Long said the draft laws covered the leadership of the government and integration of the Kingdom into regional and international frameworks to strengthen the economy, trade, social affairs, environment, and security.
“These laws significantly contributed to Cambodia’s development, ensuring peace, stability and the strengthening and expansion of relationships with our neighbours.
“We try to do whatever we can to serve people to assist them. The National Assembly worked to review government reforms and their implementation.
“All National Assembly members had travelled to their respective constituencies across the Kingdom to better understand public needs,” Peng Long said.
He said National Assembly members had resolved conflicts and forwarded their concerns to the government for a solution.
“We also executed a lot of humanitarian work such as distributing donations when people faced natural disasters such as floods, drought or fire.
“The greatest success for the National Assembly is in serving people at the grassroots level and lawmakers from the various committees have visited their respective constituencies to help resolve issues within their capacity,” he said.
A large number of complaints, Peng Long said, had been resolved at the local level, while other complaints had been forwarded to the relevant authorities as they required assistance from technical officials.
Mok Mareth, a lawmaker for Takeo province, said: “We travelled to help villagers who faced difficulties, assisted the elderly, built roads, helped provide services and resolved issues that they faced.
“We also held public forums for villagers to speak out about their concerns. We have fulfilled our promises to them [voters].”
A General Secretariat department of information report said: “All the laws approved by the National Assembly are important and serve the national interest, such as – the national budget law, law on the social security scheme, law concerning the prohibition of chemical weapons, law on e-commerce and other laws.
