First and foremost, it is in almost every Cambodian’s interest to see a well-oiled sub national level administration which is well equipped to deliver the central government’s reform and decentralisation agenda.
With the National Assembly giving a vote of confidence to form the new government yesterday, Prime Minister Hun Sen unveiled his new cabinet, which did not change except for the addition of a new ministerial post.
The main task of the new Cambodian government is to deliver what it has promised, especially in terms of raising the living standard of its citizens.
Events over the weekend were interesting as there were sweeping changes in the Ministry of Interior, where up to 10 senior officials were asked to retire and new ones installed.
Secretary of state officials will no longer be members of the Cabinet after July’s election.
the government must double its efforts on reform, says Hun Sen.
