National Assembly Marks 6th Anniversary

The National Assembly celebrated its anniversary Monday, six years after its creation under Untac in 1993.

In a brief speech, National As­sembly First Vice President Heng Samrin highlighted the role of King Norodom Sihanouk in bringing peace and national reconciliation to Cam­bodia.

“With the King’s wisdom to broker peace and reconciliation, our parliament has been successfully functioning to get to its sixth anniversary today, and the Constitution, peace, national reconciliation and society as a whole have all been maintained,’’ he said.

At a Bud­dhist ceremony outside the National Assembly, Chief Municipal Monk Nuon Ngeth doused a crowd of more than 50 parliamentarians with water, and offered Buddhist prayer.

The parliamentarians made offerings of instant noodles, money and food.
