The decision-making People’s Council of Ho Chi Minh City conducted a vote of confidence for 30 of its high-ranking officials during the council’s ongoing 12th session on Wednesday, with the organ’s deputy chairwoman Truong Thi Anh receiving the highest level of trust.

A total of 101 delegate of the municipal People’s Council cast their votes to express their level of confidence toward each of the 30 officials.

Those subject to the vote included the chair, vice-chairs, and heads of divisions of the People’s Council, chair and vice-chairs of the People’s Committee, which includes the municipal administration, directors of municipal departments, and the city’s chief inspectorate.

The delegates decided on their level of confidence toward each official by selecting between low, medium, and high.

People’s Council vice-chairwoman Truong Thi Anh ranked first amongst her colleagues, with 86 votes of ‘high confidence,’ accounting for over 81 percent.

Chairwoman of the People’s Council Nguyen Thi Quyet Tam ranked second with 81 votes of ‘high confidence,’ equivalent to 77 percent, followed by chairman of the municipal administration Nguyen Thanh Phong with 70 percent.

Nguyen Thi Thu, deputy chairwoman of the People’s Committee, and Bui Ta Hoang Vu, director of the Department of Tourism, both received the highest number of ‘low confidence’ votes, which was 18, followed by Tran Trong Tuan, director of the Department of Construction, with 17 votes.

“Overall, it is safe to say that we [the 30 officials] received a pretty high level of trust from the delegates, given the existing difficulties the city is facing,” chairwoman Tam told the press.

“The ‘low confidence’ votes, however, acted as a wake-up call for us to take a careful self-examination and make improvements in the future,” Tam remarked.
