Hanoi (VNA) – A youth dialogue entitled “18-year-old citizens and the National Assembly election” took place in Hanoi on March 29, attracting more than 400 young constituents living in the capital city.

President of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee Nguyen Thien Nhan, who is also Vice Chairman of the National Election Council, underscored the role of young people in electing those most qualified for the legislature.

Youngsters should uphold their patriotism by choosing the most capable and moral candidates who are able enough to lead the country, he said.

Dr. Doan Huong, for her part, called on each young individual to be responsible for the nation and pay more attention to the country’s socio-political issues.

First Secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (HCMCYU) Nguyen Dac Vinh hoped that participating youths will help disseminate the significance of the NA election and citizens’ responsibility following the event, and gave an insight into the major contents of the Law on Election of Deputies to the NA and People’s Councils, particularly regulations on criteria for candidates.

Co-hosted by the National Committee on Youth and the Hanoi municipal People’s Committee, the dialogue was to celebrate the 85 th anniversary of the HCMCYU (March 26) and the election of the 14 th NA and People’s Councils at all levels for the 2016-2021 tenure.-VNA
