HAVANA, May 28 (Xinhua) -- Delegates to Cuban Municipal Assemblies of People's Power elected the governors and vice governors of the country's 15 provinces on Sunday.

Elected at the proposal of Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, they will serve for a five-year term.

According to the Cuban constitution, the governor is the highest executive-administrative position of provincial governments.

The governors and vice governors will take office within 21 days, Cuba's National Electoral Council said.

The election came weeks after Cubans elected new legislators and Diaz-Canel was reelected by deputies as the island's president.
