Oabona Theetso retained his position as vice president-administration, beating the challenger, Major Edward Joseph by 16 votes to eight, with one spoilt vote. Kenneth Kikwe emerged victorious over the incumbent, Kevin Kelaotswe for the position of vice president-sport development. Kikwe secured 13 votes, Kelaotswe (8) while Kebaitse settled for three votes.
