With 12 articles, the document stipulates administration organisation at the municipal level, comprising the People’s Committee and the People’s Council. However, there is only the People’s Committees at the district and ward levels.
The Government suggested the NA add the draft resolution to the law and ordinance building programme for 2020 to be issued at the 10th meeting. If the document sails through the legislature, it will take effect from January 1, 2021, and be rolled out from July 1 the same year.
Minister of Home Affairs Le Vinh Tan said Ho Chi Minh City has yet to fully tap its potential due to multiple reasons, including those regarding local administration organisation.
Therefore, the issuance of the resolution is necessary to improve the efficiency of State management as well as the management capacity of local authorities, the minister stressed.
While presenting an appraisal report, Hoang Thanh Tung, head of the NA Committee for Legal Affairs, said the committee supports the issuance of the resolution, thus facilitating the city’s development.
He suggested the Government make specific proposals revamping the organisation and operation of the municipal People’s Council.
