The amended constitution must reflect the aspiration of the whole Party
and people, President Truong Tan Sang said at a conference held by the
central committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front on March 27.
As the constitution is a fundamental law demonstrating the will and
interests of the whole nation, the work of collecting opinions to the
draft amendments to the 1992 Constitution is very important, Sang told
participants, who are intellectuals, lawyers, religious dignitaries and
representatives of ethnic minorities nationwide.
Praising the front for having collected around 8 million opinions on the
draft over the past time, Sang said it should strive more in this work
in the coming time.
At the conference, many opinions
were also raised, including one that the draft should add a regulation
allowing overseas Vietnamese to take part in votes in Vietnam .
Participants also proposed that the role of the Fatherland Front
should be confirmed and clarified in the new constitution so that the
front could bring into further play its role in mobilizing the strength
of the national great solidarity.-VNA
