In her address, Phong noted the Personnel Sub-committee will work frequently and continuously to make recommendations to the National Election Council to help successfully organize the election.

The Personnel Sub-committee will work closely with relevant agencies to select, introduce and elect a sufficient number of National Assembly deputies, meeting required criteria regarding profession, gender, ethnicity, among others, said Phong.

Sub-committee delegates debated a draft report on the personnel and organisational structure of the upcoming legislative body, including the expected number and composition of the deputies.

They will report the results of the meeting to the upcoming session of the National Assembly Standing Committee.

Vietnamese people will cast their ballots to elect 500 deputies to the 15th National Assembly for the 2021-2026 term on May 23, 2021. The same day, they will also elect deputies to the local People’s Councils for the same term.
