Nguyen Van Quang, who was previously deputy secretary of the Party Committee in Da Nang, has been elected as the city’s Party chief for the next five years.
The election took place on Wednesday during the 22nd Congress of the Da Nang Party Committee for the 2020-25 tenure and the results were announced on Thursday morning.
Luong Nguyen Minh Triet, secretary of the Party Committee in Hai Chau District, and Le Trung Chinh, vice-chairman of the municipal People’s Committee were elected as the city’s deputy Party chiefs for the new term.
Eleven other officials were voted as members of the standing committee of the Da Nang Party Committee for the 2020-25 tenure.
