Family ties: PM warns officials on nepotism

Family ties
PRIME Minister Hun Sen told senior government officials yesterday that their jobs were not hereditary, and instructed them to focus on promoting the national interest rather than preserving their own positions.

In a speech yesterday, Hun Sen said government ministers should behave with humility. “Don’t forget that the positions for ministers, deputy prime ministers, secretaries of state and undersecretaries of states at all institutions aren’t positions that last forever or can be given to your children,” Hun Sen said.

“You should not keep your posts forever or transfer them to your children. Everything that we do is for the future of the whole nation.”

Hun Sen has previously said he does not want his 32-year-old son Hun Manet, currently a general in the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, to enter politics.
