Hai Phong (VNA)
– The organisation of the upcoming elections must accord with law, bring into play democracy, and ensure
equality, subjectivity, and transparency, National Assembly (NA) Chairman Vuong
Dinh Hue told the Standing Board of the Party Committee and the Election
Council of northern Hai Phong city on April 13.
Hai Phong has 1,552 constituencies and more than 1.5 million
voters in the elections of deputies to the 15th NA and all-level
People’s Councils for 2021-2026, slated for May 23.
Ahead of the third round of consultative conferences for the
elections, the city has 14 candidates in the NA election, along with 113 candidates
for seats in the municipal People’s Council, 899 others for the district-level
People’s Councils, and 9,332 for communal-level People’s Councils.
NA Chairman Hue, who had checked election arrangements in
Kien Thiet commune of Tien Lang district earlier the same day, highlighted the
city’s early, serious, timely, and thorough preparations, asking all-level
steering boards and election councils in Hai Phong to review their work plans
and assign detailed tasks to each collective and individual in the organisation
of the elections.
The 14th parliament was assessed as highly
successful in all the three aspects of making laws, exercising supreme
supervision, and making decisions about important issues of the country.
That success was partly attributed to the quality of NA
deputies, Hue noted, asking Hai Phong to grasp more thoroughly the purposes,
requirements, and significance of this time’s elections, which are a
particularly important task of the entire political system of Vietnam.
The elections must also be held in a safe and economical
manner while selecting outstanding and deserving deputies who are true representatives
of voters’ rights, legitimate interests, and aspirations in the NA and
all-level People’s Councils, according to the top legislator.
He also told local authorities to pay attention to the areas
that need early voting, as well as tertiary students and workers from other
localities so as to ensure citizens’ voting rights.
The Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee of Hai Phong is
scheduled to hold the third consultative conference on the candidacy on April
