National Assembly Approves Cabinet Shifts

The National Assembly Wednesday approved four high-ranking government replacements for those who had died, retired or become too sick to hold their posts.

In a vote of 107-to-1, the lawmakers approved the replacement of a deputy prime minister, a senior minister, a cabinet minister and two secretaries of state.

The lawmakers approved Bin Chhin as deputy prime minister; former tourism minister Veng Sereyvuth as Minister of Culture and Arts; Chan Sotheavy as secretary of state for the Ministry of Justice; and Sisowath Theso as secretary of state for Ministry of Tourism.

Prime Minister Hun said the replacements would help smooth the government's work.
