National Assembly Vice Chairman Nguyen Duc Kien said that the election dissemination of the 13th National Assembly and the People's Councils for the 2011-2016 term had contributed to the success of the nation's big event.
Kien was speaking at a conference held in Ha Noi yesterday to review dissemination and education related to recent elections.
Reports from the Election Council Sub-committee revealed that around 514 documents and 93 photos regarding National Assembly activities had been posted on the council's website and that around 25 foreign reporters and hundreds of domestic journalists had been supported in accessing information and interviewing those involved at polling stations nation-wide.
National Assembly Office Vice Chairman Nguyen Sy Dung said that local press and media had successfully covered the elections. The Vietnam News Agency posted more than 1,000 news items in eight different languages while Nhan Dan (The People) and Quan Doi Nhan Dan (People's Army) newspapers posted around 800 and 200 respectively.
Dung, although praising dissemination work in ethnic languages and word-of-mouth methods, noted that the fund for activities remained limited, resulting in ineffective education and dissemination in several areas. — VNS
