Hanoi (VNA) -
As of April 18, a third consultative conference had
been held at local and central levels to select eligible candidates for the
elections of deputies to the 15th National Assembly and member of People’s
Councils for 2021-2026.
The meeting held by the Presidium of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central
Committee adopted a list of 205 candidates for the upcoming election of
deputies to the 15th legislature.
Making and announcing such lists are among the tasks for local agencies and
organisations, as assigned by the National Election Council (NEC).
The lists must be sent to the National Election Committee and all-level
election committees by April 23 (30 days ahead of the elections), so that the
NEC and the all-level election committees will officially announce the
candidates at constituencies.
The listing of candidates for NA deputies at constituencies nationwide and for
members of People’s Councils at local constituencies should be completed no
later than April 28.
Meanwhile, official lists of candidates running for NA deputy in constituencies
in centrally-run cities and provinces, as well as their biographies, will be
publicised by May 3.
Localities should step up communications work to raise public awareness about
the elections and facilitate election campaigns, which are scheduled to be
concluded 24 hours prior to the elections.
Between May 13 and 23, election groups will regularly inform local voters about
polling stations and election time through leaflets and the mass media.
Local election committees will coordinate with relevant agencies and
organisations to instruct the settlement of complaints, denunciations, and
petitions regarding the lists of candidates and voters and election work.
Settlements should be completed before May 13./.
