Vietnam’s 13th National Party Congress has announced a list of 200 people elected to the 13th-tenure Party Central Committee, including 180 full and 20 alternate members. 

The Congress held a working session in Hanoi on Saturday afternoon to unveil the results of the election that took place earlier the same day.

The 13th Party Central Committee includes 180 full and 20 alternate members. Nineteen of them are women.

Party General Secretary and State President Nguyen Phu Trong and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, who were members of the 12th Party Central Committee and Politburo, were re-elected as members of the 13th Party Central Committee.

Four other members of the 12th Party Central Committee were also re-elected, namely Le Minh Tri – Prosecutor General of the Supreme People's Procuracy, Nguyen Chi Dung – Minister of Planning and Investment, Phan Van Giang – Deputy Minister of National Defense, and Vo Van Dung – Standing Deputy Chairman of the Party Central Committee's Commission for Home Affairs.

Mua A Vang, 38, Secretary of the Party Committee of Dien Bien Dong District, Dien Bien Province, is the youngest member of the 13th Party Central Committee. Vang is among the 20 alternate members. 

Delegates have also approved the adjusted working agenda of the Congress, according to which the 13th National Party Congress will close on February 1 instead of February 2 as originally scheduled.

The Congress takes a day off on Sunday, so that the 13th Party Central Committee can hold its first meeting to elect the Politburo, General Secretary, Secretariat, Central Inspection Committee, and Chairman of the Central Inspection Committee.
