Parliament Approves Cabinet Reshuffle; Hun Sen Includes More ‘Active’ Ministers

Hun Sen added that outgoing ministers were capable but had become “old” and that his government needed “active” ministers who could do timely work.

The National Assembly approved Prime Minister Hun Sen’s rejig of the council of ministers, the second such change since 2016, which saw four senior Cambodian People’s Party members sidelined for newer faces.

The prime minister had sent a letter on Friday asking the National Assembly to approve the four changes to his cabinet, which was duly approved by the CPP-controlled lower house.

Speaking to reporters after the National Assembly session, Hun Sen refused to give any explanations for the changes, except to say the changes were needed to improve the working of the ministries.
