The NA deputies held group discussions and are to cast a secret ballot on July 24.

Nguyen Xuan Phuc was elected as State President to succeed Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong at the last session of the 14th National Assembly three months ago.  

Before taking office as Head of State, Phuc had led the 14th Government for nearly five years.

Hailing from Quang Nam province, central Vietnam, the 67-year-old politician has been elected to the Political Bureau, Party Central Committee, and National Assembly in many terms.

At the first session of the 14th National Assembly, Phuc was elected as Prime Minister for the 2016-2021 term.

He was then elected State President of Vietnam at the 11th session of the 14th National Assembly in April 2021.

He is currently a member of the Political Bureau, Party Central Committee and National Assembly for 2021-2026.
