At a conference for the Ho Chi Minh City Steering Committee for Constitutional Amendment, organized by Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam, chairwoman of the City People’s Committee, it was reported that the draft amendment for the 1992 Constitution had been delivered to 1.9 million households in the City and the task of collecting public opinions was as per schedule.
So far, there have been more than 2,000 conferences, informal meetings, and discussions held around the City to gather constructive suggestions from citizens. The HCMC Federation of Labor also distributed 1 million copies of the draft to workers in HCMC.
Up till now, most areas in the City have finished the task of collecting the Suggestion Forms from households. Based on these opinions, the City will prepare a report for the Constitutional Amendment Committee by next March.
However, as per demand, the City will continue to collect ideas from citizens through formal or informal meetings.
