The first session concluded after nine consecutive working days, eight days shorter than planned due to a serious Covid-19 situation.

The first session of the 15th National Assembly (NA) ended in success after nine days would be the perfect beginning for the 2021-2025 term, NA Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue said at the wrap-up meeting today [July 28].

Amid the severe Covid-19 outbreak in major cities, Hue said the NA agreed to cut short the duration of the session by eight days.

“This, however, has not affected the NA’s agenda with the ratification of 30 resolutions, including those of strategic significance for the country’s development in the long term,” Hue said.

Amid the severe Covid-19 situation in Vietnam, Hue noted the NA has included in the session’s resolution on urgent measures to fight the pandemic, saying this would provide the Government with legal instruments to address the situation, even steps that have not been regulated or going against existing legislation.

During the final meeting of today’s session, the NA ratified the appointment of 26 Government members nominated by Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.
