The Politburo issued Directive No 45-CT/TW on June 20 last year requesting the entire political system be united, enhance coordination, and prepare conditions necessary for the success and truly democratic, equal, safe, and thrifty organisation of the election in line with legal regulations.

Following that, the Government, the NA Standing Committee, the National Election Council, the VFF Central Committee, sectors, and localities swiftly issued directives, resolutions, decisions, plans, and guidance to prepare for the election.

Preparations have been made in tandem with arrangements for all-level Party congresses and the 13th National Party Congress, the Party and State leader noted.

Ordering efforts to ensure that the election will see the best possible results and truly become a festival of the people, Trong called for citizens to solidly grasp the viewpoints, directions, and major policies to be issued at the upcoming National Party Congress, especially those relating to personnel work, so as to elect persons of good moral character and talent and capacity to the NA and all-level People’s Councils, helping to realise the resolution from the 13th National Party Congress.
