Parliamentary elections were held in Vietnam on 6 January 1946, in all localities, even in fighting regions of Southern, Southern Central and Central Highlands areas.[1][2] The result was a victory for the Indochinese Communist Party-Vietnam Workers' Party, which won 182 of the 302 seats, although the distribution of seats had been decided before the elections.[3] The ballot was not secret, and ballot papers were filled in in the presence of aides who were "to help comrades who had difficulty in making out their ballots."[4]
