One-fifth of the candidates are ethnic minority people and 45 percent are females, which is much higher than the previous elections.
The preparation for the elections in Vietnam is a demonstration of steadfastness in the Party's leadership, people’s right to mastery and national governance in line with the law.
Amidst the complex Covid-19 situation, Ambassador Xiong Bo spoke highly of Vietnam’s application of information technology in elections to ensure that it would take place safely and orderly.
He expressed his belief that the elections would be successful. Vietnamese constituents would select capable and virtuous deputies to lead the country to realize resolutions set out by the 13th National Party Congress.

She was received by and held talks with Chinese Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping, Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress Li Zhanshu, and Chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference Wang Yang.
During the meetings, both sides reached important common perception on exchanging experience on national governance and fostering cooperation between legislative bodies.
He pledged to continue working to beef up exchanges between the two legislatures, contributing to the development of the bilateral comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership.
