Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong and other candidates for the 15th NA deputies met with voters in Hanoi on May 8 to campaign and introduce their programmes of actions.
The meeting was held online connecting 53 wards in Ba Dinh, Hai Ba Trung and Dong Da district.
After listening to voters’ opinions and aspirations, the candidates pledged that if selected, they will work hard and regularly meet people to understand their aspirations, VietnamPlus reported.
They highlighted their own action plans, focusing on promoting the role of people’s representatives, protecting the interests of people, and engaging in deciding important issues of the country and actively supervising the implementation of laws and operations of the State, Government and local administrations.
They affirmed that in any position, they will always work hard to complete all tasks assigned by the Party, State and people, becoming an example in abiding by the Party's policies, the Constitution and the State's laws.
Voters at the meeting spoke highly of the action plans of the candidates, while giving their opinions on many issues such as the national construction strategy towards 2025, 2030 and 2045, Party building and purification, national sovereignty and territorial integrity, gender equality, COVID-19 prevention and control, the improvement of health care and education quality, environmental protection, and social welfare.
They showed their hope that the 15th NA will strengthen its supervision over important programmes and projects, and put forward stronger measures to boost socio-economic development.

On behalf of candidates in the constituency, Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong thanked the voters for contributing their opinions.
He said that from a war-torn country, Vietnam has risen to the highest position ever in the international arena. However, there are much to do in the future, especially amid COVID-19 pandemic, he said.
The Party leader called on the whole Party and people to stay united, promoting the national long-lasting tradition to further develop.
He also stressed the need for officials and NA deputies to work hard to complete their assigned tasks.
The same day, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and other candidates met voters in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho’s constituency No. 1, the VNS said.

The PM said over 35 years of “Doi Moi” (renewal), Vietnam had gained great achievements. However, the country was facing big challenges, including the ageing population, exhausted natural resources, climate change and non-traditional security issues.
The Government leader pointed out three key pillars for the country’s development – people, including their brainpower and values, the value of nature and natural resources, and national historical and cultural values. He also stressed the need to promote national solidarity.
Regarding the action plan designed by the Government to realise the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress, PM Chinh said the plan was made to suit reality and will be implemented in a comprehensive and synchronous manner with a proper roadmap and priorities.
On the development of the Mekong Delta, including Can Tho City, he said that the 20-million-strong region had yet to fully tap its potential.
Regarding transport infrastructure, the PM said it was necessary to focus on studying and re-planning the transportation system of the Mekong Delta and outline solutions and mechanisms for developing inland waterways, seaports, roads, expressways and airports in the region.
He suggested local authorities uphold the spirit of self-reliance, join hands with the Government to promote socio-economic development in the Mekong Delta, perform the Government's Resolution on sustainable development of the Mekong Delta to adapt to climate change, and the Politburo’s Resolution on building and developing Can Tho City to 2030, with a vision to 2045.

For Can Tho City, he underlined the need to build the city into a political, economic and cultural centre and a hub of transport, logistics services and agriculture of the whole region.
The Government leader also discussed COVID-19 prevention and control efforts with local voters, noting it was essential to oppose tendencies of being distracted, panic, and extreme in the fight against the pandemic.
The PM urged the entire population, including voters in the Mekong Delta, to voluntarily and strictly follow regulations on COVID-19 prevention and control.
Voters in Ninh Kieu, Cai Rang and Phong Dien districts of Can Tho City highly value action programmes of the candidates.
They hope if the candidates are elected, they will effectively implement their action programmes and tackle issues that voters care about./.
