Hun Manet Appointed to Lead Ruling Party’s Youth Movement

Prime Minister Hun Sen’s eldest son General Hun Manet has been appointed to lead the ruling CPP’s purported 1.8 million-strong youth movement, a promotion that one analyst called a “preparation” for Manet to one day lead the nation.

Manet, 42, was promoted from vice president to head of the party’s youth wing by the CPP Central Committee’s 34-member standing committee, which is led by Hun Sen, according to a party statement dated Monday.

His promotion was made based on Manet’s professional capacity, a request from the assignment committee and a recommendation from the standing committee, which consists of senior party leaders, including Manet himself, said the announcement and CPP spokesman Sok Eysan.
