Ministry given more time to work on public demonstration law

The draft law on public demonstrations in Vietnam, which has been planned for nine years now, will not be submitted to the parliament for discussion in its upcoming session.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has approved a request by the Ministry of Public Security to postpone the date of submission of the bill to the National Assembly (NA).

The ministry has asked for more time to make the bill more coherent, it said in a letter responding to voters who asked about the time frame for submitting the bill to the parliament.
