Vaz, 60, takes charge of the National Executive Committee of the Labour party as its Black Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME) representative, defeating his opponent by a comfortable margin - polling 72.2 per cent against 28.8 per cent.
"I am looking forward to continuing the vital work that I have been carrying out in the position for the last decade," said the Labour MP from Leicester East.
"Labour is the party of diversity and has a good record but we must do more... During my campaign I pledged that Labour will work towards having one BAME MP in every major city. I will work tirelessly as BAME representative to ensure that this happens," he said.
The Goan-origin politician is the longest-serving MP of ethnic origin to serve on the Labour party's NEC, having served on the committee for 10 years.
His latest term will be for a further two years.
The National Executive Committee is the governing body and the administrative authority of the Labour Party that oversees the overall direction of the party and the policy- making process.
