Hanoi (VNA) – National Assembly Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue chaired a nationwide teleconference in Hanoi on July 15 reviewing the elections of deputies to the 15th legislature and People’s Councils at all levels for the 2021-2026 tenure.

In his opening speech, Hue, who is also Chairman of the National Election Council (NEC), described the election as the country’s significant political event that took place in a democratic and fair manner in line with the law, ensuring safety and thriftiness. It was really a great festival of the nation, he said.

The event was held at a time when the country experienced 75 years of independence, 35 years of renovation with important achievements of historical significance.

The entire Party, army and people are striving to bring the Resolution by the 13th National Party Congress into life, carry out the 2021-2025 socio-economic development tasks and build the law-governed socialist State of the people, by the people and for the people, he said, adding that the public trust on the Party and State has been consolidated, thus laying a solid foundation for the country’s rapid and sustainable development.

According to Hue, the election was prepared thoroughly, professionally and flexibly from the central to local level on the basis of upholding people’s right to mastery, ensuring favourable conditions for every citizen to fully exercise right to nomination and election in line with the law.

The largest-scale election recorded nearly 70 million votes in 84,767 voting areas. Voters chose qualified representatives with moral virtue and brainpower out of around 450,000 candidates. The voter turnout reached up to 99.6 percent despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Representatives from the NEC, the Government and the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee presented reports reviewing the election work and pointing out shortcomings that need to be fixed for the next elections.

The top legislator asked participants to give opinions on reports to contribute to the success of the event./.
