Unofficial Translation Selected Impromptu Comments and Response at the Fourth Session, Fifth Legislature of the National Assembly on issue of Disaster Management [Unofficial Translation]

NCDM – A Coordinator, Not Operator

The fact that I have taken the forum, I do not mean to respond to what were raised by previous speakers. I think that people can draw a judgment on this. I just wanted to make some clarifications on issue relating to responsibility. The law that we have compiled here should be a roadmap for disaster management in our country – at both national and sub-national levels. Though I was not present but I followed closely opinions expressed by members of the National Assembly. (I wish to clarify that) the National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM) is just a coordinating mechanism while all implementations are left to operators. Who are the operators? They are ministries and state institutions created by laws and they have been given budget already. Take for instance, should the situation requires deployment of army to places where incidents occur, the army may be deployed while the Ministry of National Defense already has its budget. They also have the means at regional, divisional or provincial military region levels. Should there be a need for the police force, the Ministry of Interior, which is its budget holder.
