Hun Sen confirmed as Cambodian PM


Cambodia's National Assembly on Thursday confirmed Samdech Techo Hun Sen as prime minister for another five years after his Cambodian People's Party (CPP) won all parliamentary seats in a July general election.


All 125 CPP lawmakers unanimously voted for him as prime minister, the position that he has held since 1985.


The National Assembly also approved Hun Sen's new Cabinet members for the 2018-2023 term.


According to an official schedule, the 67-year-old prime minister and his cabinet members will be sworn in on Thursday afternoon at the Royal Palace under the auspices of the nation's King Norodom Sihamoni.
