NDO – National Assembly (NA) Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan has hailed An Giang provincial electoral commission’s efforts in preparing for the upcoming election of deputies to the 14th legislature and People’s Councils at all levels for the 2016-2021 period.

Speaking at a working session with the commission on May 9, the top legislator stressed that in the final steps for the run-up elections, the province needs to create favourable conditions for all candidates to meet with voters so that they can listen to voters’ concerns and present their action programmes equally.

NA Chairman Ngan, who is also head of the National Election Council, asked the province to step up the communication work about the election and make sure the work adheres to the law.

She urged the provincial electoral commission to continue updating the list of voters - especially those who work away from home - and ensure that they can return home to cast their ballots on Election Day.

During her stay in An Giang, Chair Ngan also worked with the electoral commissions of Long Xuyen city and My Hoa Hung commune. At these working sessions, she emphasised the need to ensure the elections take place in line with the law and as planned in a public, transparent and democratic manner.

She also offered incense and paid homage to late President Ton Duc Thang at his memorial site in Long Xuyen city, An Giang province.

After three consultative conferences, the provincial electoral commission made a list of 18 candidates eligible to run for seats in the NA, from which ten will be chosen.

Meanwhile, a total of 124 candidates will run for seats in the provincial People’s Council in the May election.

The province has set up a total of 1,448 polling stations, where information and brief biographies of the candidates are posted so that voters are well informed about the candidates and can exercise their right to vote.
