I have voted twice before, when I was 19 and 24 years old. It was an indescribable feeling. I was proud and happy to use my citizenship rights to elect candidates to represent the people.

This election, I received the voting papers and biographies of the candidates, and studied them carefully. I’ve chosen people I consider to be the most appropriate for the National Assembly. I’m eager to vote.

I do not prefer candidates who are too old. I need young candidates to represent the people, but they should be old enough and experienced enough to decide the country’s future, as well as deal with pressing issues such as food hygiene and safety.

I have very high expectations for the next National Assembly. I hope the country will have more young deputies to represent the people.

Voting is how I can fulfill my responsibility by choosing capable deputies who can raise the concerns of the people. I have chosen people I have confidence in.

I hope the elected National Assembly members will keep the promises they made to the people before the election. I don’t like deputies who attend NA meetings just to raise their hands to express approval.

I prefer young candidates because they are dynamic, creative and enthusiastic.   

They should fearlessly raise the major socio-economic issues of the country. For example, food safety issues should receive more attention from the NA deputies. The previous National Assembly performed well. — VNS
