Laos wishes to learn from Hanoi’s experience in operating elected bodies such as People’s Councils of various levels.

So said visiting Lao National Assembly Vice Chairman Somphan Phenkhamy at a working session with Chairwoman of the Hanoi People’s Council Ngo Thi Doan Thanh in the capital city on March 18.

At the meeting, Thanh said that the enhanced cooperation and experience sharing between the two countries’ legislative bodies and all-level People’s Councils have improved their operations.

She introduced to her Lao guest the operation model of elected bodies and experience in organising local authority elections, emphasising the need for the leadership of Party committees, the engagement of the whole political system, and the selection of responsible and experienced persons to join election teams.

It is necessary to disseminate information in combination with handling complaints, and increase the inspection and supervision of elected bodies’ operations, she added.-VNA
