King Norodom Sihamoni’s decree, endorsing the 45-year-old Hun Manet on Monday, was shared on Hun Sen’s Telegram channel and signals the imminent end of the incumbent leader’s nearly four decades at the helm of a country rebounding from decades of war and poverty.
The appointment requires the approval of the newly elected National Assembly, expected later this month.
