Phnom Penh (FN), Aug. 23 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen said that Cambodia’s future candidate for prime minister does not need a support for any foreign country, but the support from Cambodian People’s Party (CPP).

The premier spoke at the graduation ceremony of students of Asia Euro University, held on Tuesday (Aug 23) at OCIC, Phnom Penh’s Chroy Chongvar district.   

“To be a future candidate for premier, no need to seek support from foreign country. In the initial stage, the candidate shall gain support from the CPP to become a member of parliament in accordance to the kingdom’s constitution and then go through elections,” the premier underlined.

“I do not educate my children to become thieves. I would like to ask who does not want their children to have high position. However, there is no power intervening to get this the high position,” Samdech continued.

"If Hun Manet is not capable to be the future candidate for prime minister, Hun Sen would not recommend because Hun Sen does not let Cambodia or the CPP be destroyed by his son," the premier underscored.
