The NA leader emphasised that all-level Election Committees in Tuyen Quang must carefully review their lists of voters to ensure the election rights of all local residents, while arranging extra ballot boxes to enable people under COVID-19 quarantine, and the elderly and sick who cannot travel to polling places to exercise their civil rights.

Tuyen Quang should continue to update and strive to resolve all complaints and denunciations no later than May 13, as well as properly organise meetings between voters and NA candidates in accordance with the law and pandemic prevention and control measures, he stated.
