More than 69.2 million Vietnamese are set to cast votes to elect members of the national and local legislative bodies in the country's biggest-ever general election on Sunday.
They will elect 500 members of the National Assembly for the term of 2016-21 from 870 nominees around the country.
Nearly 4,000 members of People's Councils or lawmakers at cities and provinces will also be elected. 
Last month the National Assembly elected Vietnam's top leaders, including Party Chief Nguyen Phu Trong, President of State Tran Dai Quang, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, and parliament chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.
In Vietnam, the voting age is 18 but one has to be at least 21 to run for office.
