- The Vietnam Fatherland
Front (VFF) Central Committee held a national teleconference on January 22 to
provide instructions on handling affairs relating to the election of deputies
to the 15th National Assembly (NA) and all-level People’s Councils for the 2021-2026
Addressing more than 8,500 delegates nationwide
via videoconference, President of the VFF Central Committee Tran Thanh Man said
the election, slated for May 23, is a way to demonstrate the people’s will,
aspirations, and right to mastery in the building of the State, including the
NA and all-level People’s Councils - the people’s representative bodies and
organs of State power from the central to local levels.
It is an important political event in the
country, following the 13th National Party Congress and associated with
personnel work, he went on, adding that it will be an occasion for voters to
exercise their rights and obligations to elect outstanding and deserving
persons to the organs of State power.
Vice President of the VFF Central Committee
Truong Thi Ngoc Anh said the Party, State, and the VFF have issued 17 direction
documents relating to the general election, based on which central and
provincial VFF committees have built detailed plans to handle election-related
affairs, especially negotiations to select and nominate candidates for the election.
The selection and nomination of candidates must
be placed under the Party’s comprehensive leadership, ensure democracy, and bring into
play the role of religious dignitaries and exemplars and leaders of
communities, Anh said.
Man stressed that preparing for the election is
currently the most important task of the VFF from the central to local levels,
asking VFF committees at all levels to promote communications and supervision
during this peak period.
In addition, they also need to press on with
performing other tasks, including coordinating with VFF member organisations in
the COVID-19 fight and caring for disadvantaged families as the Lunar New Year
holiday approaches, the official noted./.
