The directive on the leadership of the election said this is the nation’s important political event which will select outstanding deputies representing people’s will and aspirations at the NA and People’s Councils in the 2021-2026 tenure, contributing to building, consolidating, and completing the rule-based socialist State of the people, by the people and for the people, under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

The election will take place in the context that Vietnam has gained impressive socio-economic development achievements after 35 years of renewal, but is facing a lot of challenges and difficulties, especially the serious impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To make the election a success, the Politburo asked Party Committees and organisations to draw detail plans to direct the organisation of the election and ensure it will be conducted democratically, fairly, legitimately, safely and economically.

It is important to introduce and elect competent deputies, the directive stressed.
