Cheam Yeap sets way for Tech Chanveasna

In response to Mr. Tech Chanveasna who wants to someday become a representative, H.E. Dr Cheam Yeap, who has worked in the National Assembly for more than 30 years and has served as governor of Prey Veng province and Minister at the Ministry of Tourism, provided some useful advice.

“First, you have to choose which party you want to be involved with. You make that decision based on your understanding of the party’s vision and mission,” Dr Yeap said.

Dr Yeap, chairman of the Finance and Banking Commission and member of the Permanent Committee of the National Assembly, added that after joining the chosen party, you have to show your abilities in order to win the approval and trust of people.
These abilities come from dedication to studying and research. To become a representative, you have to complete schooling through ninth grade but higher education is recommended.

“In order to become a representative it is important to be outstanding and have good character with a solid understanding of the needs of citizens” Dr Yeap said.

According to a 1997 law, Cambodia nationals of both genders must be at least 25 years of age to register as a representative and compete with others. Cambodia also used to have the original rule of law, created in 1946 when Cambodia was still part of French Indochina.

In the end, Dr Yeap encourages the youth who aspire to become representative to study hard and be knowledgeable about laws as well as other factors to help with analysis. Dr Yeap also stressed the importance becoming very knowledgable of the law to help improving the country.
