at 10 offshore economic, scientific, and technical service platforms on the

duty at sea, fulfilling half of its assigned tasks.
The group is set
to complete its duties and return to the mainland by May 20.
Despite the hardships
from constant travelling and the conditions at different units, the election group ensured
it followed all election requirements, Viet affirmed.

the first time he has exercised his right to vote at a special location while
carrying out his duties protecting the country’s sacred sovereignty.

responsibilities as citizens.
