The Senate yesterday, in its first session since Senate elections in February, voted to re-elect its top leaders for the new mandate.
After King Norodom Sihamoni left after opening the session, the process to elect a president and two vice presidents was presided over by Mom Chhim Huy, the Senate’s eldest member.
All 62 new senators voted unanimously to re-elect Say Chhum as president, Ney Pena as first vice president, and Tep Ngorn as second vice president for the new mandate of the Senate.
Mr Chhum, speaking on behalf of himself and his two vice presidents, thanked the senators for their votes and for allowing them to continue serving the nation.
“We hope the Senate will work harder to develop Cambodia as a state of law in solidarity, agreement, forgiveness, and cooperation with each other,” said Mr Chhum.
At about 3pm this afternoon, all 62 new senators went to the Royal Palace to be sworn in.
