is entering a new stage of development that will meet the demand and
aspirations of voters and people nationwide, according to Party General
Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.
Talking to the press after casting
his vote in Hanoi on May 23 morning, the Party leader highlighted the
significance of the 15th general elections, which coincide with the
131st birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh and follow the success
of the 13th National Party Congress.
He noted that this time’s
elections take place more than 75 years after the country gained independence
and 35 years since the launch of Doi moi (Renewal), at a time when the country
has fulfilled the socio-economic development plans for 2016-2021 and set out to
implement the socio-economic development plan for the next five years.
With nearly 70 million voters
who will select 500 deputies to the 15th National Assembly (NA), nearly 4,000 to
provincial-level People’s Councils, over 20,000 to district-level People’s
Councils, and more than 240,000 to communal-level People’s Councils, this is
the largest-ever elections, General Secretary Trong affirmed.
Despite the COVID-19
pandemic, voters have played a very active and responsible role in preparing
for the elections over the past months, the Party chief emphasised, voicing his
belief that the most deserving persons will be selected for the NA and
all-level People’s Councils for the 2021-2026 tenure.
The leader added that he
hopes the deputies of the NA and People’s Councils in the new tenure will
wholeheartedly work for the sake of the country and the people, fulfill their
responsibilities and duties in line with the Constitution and laws, and be
absolutely faithful to the Fatherland, the people, and the Constitution./.
