Cambodian Government is Getting Bigger - 2004-07-20

The new coalition government in Cambodia is the biggest ever since 1993.

It will have 146 under-secretary of states in 26 ministries. Each ministry will have at least 5 under-secretary of states.

Most under-secretary of states from the FUNCINPEC party do not have previous experience in office according to FUNCINPEC under-secretary general Ok Socheat.

He said he hopes the newly appointed officials will work hard to help boost the party's image.

Most officials from the Cambodian People's Party have previous experience.

The Sam Rainsy party refused to join the coalition government because it does not recognize it.
