King appoints Hun Manet as Prime Minister

(The Phnom Penh Post/ANN) -- King Norodom Sihamoni on August 7 issued a royal decree appointing Hun Manet, an elected lawmaker for Phnom Penh, as the prime minister of Cambodia.

“The designated Prime Minister is tasked with forming a new government pending avote of confidence at the National Assembly,” stated the decree, effective immediately.
Hun Sen posted the decree on his Telegram channel shortly after the appointment.
The prime minister-in-waiting will be officially sworn in on August 22, following the vote of confidence.
