Secretary of the Hanoi Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung expressed his delight after having cast the ballot today [May 23] at the polling station No.17 in Dinh Cong ward, Hoang Mai district.
“I call for everyone to vote as each ballot has a great meaning. We are selecting the representatives for the highest organ of State power, which is the National Assembly, and locality-level legislative bodies, namely the People’s Councils,” said Dung.
Every vote, therefore, would contribute to the construction of a socialist country of the people, by the people, and for the people, Dung continued.
