Two officials have been elected as the new vice-chairmen of the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee, raising the number of vice-chairs at the municipal administration to four.

Ngo Minh Chau and Vo Van Hoan were voted vice-chairs of the city’s administration for the 2016-21 tenure during a meeting on Saturday.

Chau received 88 votes and Hoan 82 ballots from a total of 90 delegates.

The Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee now has one chairman, Nguyen Thanh Phong, and four vice-chairs, namely Chau, Hoan, Le Thanh Liem, and Tran Vinh Tuyen.

According to regulations, the administration is allowed to have a maximum of five vice-chairs.

Chau, 55, is a major general and has been deputy director of the municipal Department of Police since 2007.

Hoan, 54, has been head of the office of the municipal People’s Committee since November 2015.

The new appointments are considered very important after the city’s administration was riddled with vacancies for a long time.

Former vice-chairman Huynh Cach Mang was relieved of his post in early April to become deputy head of the municipal Party Committee's Organization Board.

Former vice-chairwoman Nguyen Thi Thu passed away due to serious illness in late February, and former deputy chairman Le Van Khoa stepped down from his post due to health issues in March 2018.
