He noted lessons learned from the elections including promoting national unity, engaging the whole political system in the election, strengthening communications. Hue said, ‘It’s important to well prepare personnel for the election, focusing on consultative meetings, selection and nomination of candidates, collection of voters’ comments, and campaigning to have qualified candidates for the election. We need to ensure capability of election teams which should comprise capable, wholehearted, and responsible members and those who well understand election law and have experience. We need to ensure principles in casting ballots and counting ballots.’
