The Interior Ministry has denied the claim that the government will promote former commune chiefs from the Cambodian People’s Party who lost their seats in Sunday’s polls and make them advisors or assistants at state-institutions. 
 
The ministry reacted to recent local media reports which said the government would provide jobs to commune chiefs and their deputies who lost their seats in the elections. 
 
According to a statement from the Interior Ministry on Thursday, the information in the media caused confusion. 
 
It added that the government only planned to promote any commune chiefs or deputy commune chiefs who were not on the candidate list for the fourth commune election. 
 
The ministry said the promotions were aimed at using human resources who had experience and the capacity for facilitating tasks and promoting efficiency. 
 
“The government does not have any plans to promote losing candidates for the fourth mandate of commune councilors to be advisors or assistants at ministries or state institutions,” the statement said.
