The elections of deputies to the 15th National Assembly and all-level People’s Councils for the 2021-2026 tenure are set for May 23.

Minister of Home Affairs Pham Thi Thanh Tra

Given the complex developments of COVID-19, Tra, who is also a member of the National Election Council, ordered wearing masks, avoiding big gatherings, and keeping physical distance of at least two meters at polling stations. 

Municipal and provincial election committees should put forth flexible voting scenarios based on reality in each locality, the document reads.

Voters should not go to polling stations in crowds, Tra said, suggesting communal People’s Committees and election groups arrange the voting time for each village and residential area.
