The Central Committee of the Vietnam Fatherland Front held the third consultation conference for selecting candidates for the 13th National Assembly on April 15.
After the second conference, a total of 1,086 candidates were shortlisted, including 183 introduced by central agencies and 903 nominated by localities, with a ratio of candidates over the elected at 2.17.
The list and short biographies of the 183 nominees from central agencies were sent to localities so that voters can remark on them.
The confidence results from the voters in residential areas were 100 percent for 179 candidates and about 90 percent for the rest.
Most of the voters remarked that the nominees for the National Assembly meet the set criteria, have good political and moral qualities, and maintain good ties with the communities in their residential areas.
However, some said that some candidates did not frequently meet with inhabitants.
Also at the third consultation conference, the Vietnam Fatherland Front publicized the official list of 182 nominees from central agencies. One nominee was excluded from the final list because his dossier is not as sufficient as required.
Addressing the conference, Tong Thi Phong, Vice Chairwoman of the National Assembly, said the NA Standing Committee will try to create more favourable conditions for the NA deputies to bring into full play their capabilities to serve the country and people.
