I want to become a people’s representative

Tech Chanveasna, 26, graduated from the Royal University of Laws and Economics in 2011.

His dream is to become a people’s representative and to serve Cambodian citizens, but at present he works as an assistant director at the International Port in Phnom Penh.

On why he wants to become a representative Chanveasna said: “I want to become a representative in order to have an opportunity to lead the country. It doesn’t mean that Cambodia is bad right now, but I hope it can develop well in every field.”

“We should not let foreign investment take over our country’s development, but have foreign experts teach us how to develop, and at the same time send young Cambodians abroad to study how to manage our resources in order to use them ourselves in the future.”

To make his dream come true, he has set his goal very clear. “First I want to become a representative in my hometown of Kampot province, then I want to become a representative in the National Assembly.”

Often he joins in with political discussions about Cambodia to ask for mentoring from local politicians, so as to learn more about politics.
