Lê Khắc Lập, 85, retiree, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng City.

I have kept an eye on the country’s development for nearly half century, and I have hope for the national election of the 14th National Assembly (NA) and all-level People’s Councils for the 2016–2021 tenure. I will cast my vote for eligible candidates with a trust for a better future. I do believe that the younger generation will make a great change in socio-economic development in 2016-21.

I call on my family members and neighbours to vote for the best candidates for the all-level People’s Council of Đà Nẵng to sustain the pace the city has reached over the past decades. We also require that all candidates pay more attention to the the environment, food safety, traffic and education.

Đà Nẵng has come to be seen as a liveable location in Việt Nam in recent years, and a favourite destination with pristine beaches and friendly people. New candidates should make efforts to create a safer and cleaner environment for Đà Nẵng to continue drawing in investment and tourists over the coming years.

Trần Minh Khánh, 25, a resident of Lý Sơn Island District, offshore of Quảng Ngãi Province.

I’m one of the younger generation living on the island. The islanders and I can be trusted to select deputies to the 14th National Assembly (NA) and the all-level People’s Councils for the 2016–21 tenure. We expect our candidates to help develop the island into one of the most visited sites in central Việt Nam, so that we, islanders, can improve our income through providing tourism services. We also ask possible candidates to build Lý Sơn Island as a ‘green’ and sustainable district that balances development and the environment.

Islanders still face many difficulties in farming and fishing. We hope for our lives to be easier with better incomes and stability.

We trail over the seas on a month long fishing trip. Our boat docks at Đà Nẵng fishing port and we’ll cast our votes at a site near our fishing boat in the port. We can not go back home because we’ll go out fishing again as soon as the election closes on Sunday night.

We put our belief and hopes on the deputies that we’ll vote into the 14th National Assembly (NA) and all-level People’s Councils for the 2016–21 tenure. We expect the deputies will all do their best to contribute to the country’s development. We need safe and peaceful fishing grounds for bumper catches and a stable price of seafood in the market.

I think the deputies of the 14th National Assembly (NA) and all-level People’s Councils for the 2016–21 tenure will perform a face-lift for the country in the coming years. Fishermen hope that pollution of the environment and sea will be curbed. We suffered heavy losses and bed debts when the fish died en masse due to a crisis of environment in the central coastal regions in April.

Fishermen can only make our living from fishing, so we really need a stable market price and a safe sea for offshore fishing trips.

We do hope that our ocean will not see any environmental calamity in the coming years. — VNS
