Lao Front to approve new structure, regulations

Issues around the organisational structure, role and obligations of the Front at all levels, and related regulations, will be the focus of discussion and consideration by the Lao Front for National Construction (LFNC)'s Committee at its upcoming plenary.

The LFNC's Vice President, Mr Khambay Damlath revealed the plan whilst talking with media representatives yesterday about the upcoming ordinary plenary of the committee, which will take place this month.

The mobilisation of various human resources to the Front's efforts in implementing its obligations towards national construction will be an important topic at the meeting.

The LFNC is setting up four advisory committees: one on ethnicity, another on religion, one advisory committee on civil society, and another advisory committee on Lao-overseas relations.

“The mobilisation of people who have experience in these fields is important for the implementation of their political duties in national construction,” Mr Khambay said, mentioning retired former Front Vice President Mr Tong Yeuthor as an example.

The LFNC has one president, Dr Xaysomphone Phomvihane and six vice presidents: a member of the Party Central Committee Mr Khambay Damlath, Party member Mr Khamla Lingnasone, Ms Khamchanh Phomsengsavanh, Mr Chanthavong Sen-amathmonty, Assoc. Prof Dr Som-Ock Kingsada, and Mr Yiakeuya Nochochongtua.

In the future, the LFNC will also have some ceremonial vice presidents; therefore the activities of the ceremonial vice presidents of the Front will be another topic at the plenary, which will also discuss the role and obligations of the Front offices at provincial, district and village levels.

Aside from its six departments and one office, the Front has set up a centre dedicated to issues around national construction. In relation to this, the Front has developed some related regulations, which will also be tabled for discussion at the upcoming meeting.

The LFNC has around 200 members within its Central Committee to carry out its work since they were elected at the Tenth Congress of the LFNC held in June last year. The work they have done in the past eight months was the translation of the Congress' resolution in regards to various programmes and projects.

Also discussed at the meeting will be the lessons learned in regards what are classified as ‘development villages of solidarity' in conjunction with the building of development villages, and also the creation of village funds in conjunction with poverty reduction.
