On April 8, the National Assembly (NA) will elect the successors of Vice State President Nguyen Thi Doan and a number of vice prime ministers.

This morning, the Standing Committee will report to the NA on the nominees to replace vice state president Nguyen Thi Doan, chief judge of the Supreme People's Court Truong Hoa Binh and prosecutor general of the Vietnam Supreme People's Procuracy Nguyen Hoa Binh.

Once the list of nominees is approved, the NA will hold a secret ballot to elect the successors.

This would be followed by the newly elected chief judge of the Supreme People's Court taking an oath of office before the NA.
